Dead Island Music

An amazing game trailer video with absolutely beautiful and emotionally charged music by Giles Lamb.

Not sure about anyone else, but I find this such a moving trailer to watch. The theme tune by Giles Lamb can be purchased on iTunes. If you are not a gamer and are a bit squeamish with regards to all things zombie related, I urge you to face your fears and watch/listen. I think you will be moved.

  2. I've seen this too. I remember seeing another version that plays forward but I can't remember where... This is chilling (because zombies freak the heck out of me) but I can appreciate the result, so well done and the music is perfect for the effect.

    1. Welcome Elise, nice to have you join us at the hearth :)
      In all honesty I'm just a big CGI trailer fan, but rarely the games they promote. This piece of music is simply gorgeous, and is used on my iPad as the alarm to wake me up.

      Thank you so much for stopping by :)

  3. Dead Island was a curious thing. The trailer was emotional and moving, and I'll say a good bit of it was the music. But then when we actually get to the game itself, well, I'd say it was a bit of a let-down. Good thing we've got that music. I know my brother just loves the tune; runs it all the time from his playlist.

    1. Joshua,

      I agree totally. I've played 'Left 4 Dead', but only to join friends online. One of my group tried convincing me to try this one, but like you, I felt it lacked anything new or original, and graphically wasn't doing anything fresh either.
      I am, however, ready to roll for Guild Wars 2 :) - if you like CGI game promos, search on my blog or 'Assassin's Creed', and the Iron song by Woodkid - now that one blows me away and gives me goosebumps every time.
