Employing an impressive lineup to score Batman's ever-challenging crusade through a besieged city, Warner Bros. sought the seedy tones of ††† (Crosses), the Duke Spirit, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Swedish noise-pop darlings Raveonettes.
The latter's 'Oh, Stranger' is a pulsing piece of the electro underground that will get your heart pumping and your fingers twitching to beat up some baddies.
"We tried to stay away from anything old or too obvious and created a modern action-packed, if you will, adventure," Ravenottes singer and guitarist Sune Rose Wagner tells Spinner. "None of us are really gamers but I certainly used to be when I was younger so I definitely wrote with that in mind.
"You dive into it with the project in mind and try to make the music fit your idea of what the images will be. You definitely think inside the game world when you compose a piece like this whereas 'normally' you sort of just shoot from the hip. I think images and music have always had a strong connection so it's only natural that technology allows us to intertwine the two so we can enjoy both worlds at once."
'Batman: Arkham City,' the album, will drop on Oct. 4, two weeks prior to the game's North American release on Oct. 18, via Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady Studios.
