Front Line Assembly have composed and recorded the soundtrack for the video game "AirMech"
"It’s very hard electronics, and I have to say this really kicks it. It’s got 12 songs in total" says FLA mastermind Bill Leeb "Easily one of my favourite releases ever! Everyone worked so hard, and it’s really a labour of love. It was so cool seeing all these young guys really get into it.“
Carbon Games has signed Front Line Assembly to create an original album for AirMech. "For AirMech, the first thing I thought of was trying to get music that sounded like Front Line Assembly, so then I figured I should at least try and contact the band on the off chance they would be interested in talking with us," says James Green, Game Director at Carbon Games. "I was thrilled when the news came back that they would be interested in working on a game project again."
Front Line Assembly is one of the pioneering bands in the electronic industrial world and continues to be guided by founder Bill Leeb. The AirMech album has been under development since late 2011 in parallel with the progression of the game. Selections of the music will be deconstructed for use as dynamic music, which reacts to conditions during battle. The trademark structure of FLA's music made this collaboration an exciting opportunity for both teams. This album is entirely instrumental, and stands as a compelling FLA album on its own.
The CD album is to be released as limited edition in Europe on November 16 via Dependent.
