The lights are on
If there's one thing almost everyone can agree on regarding the Mass Effect series, it's that the soundtrack for each game is always really, really good.
BioWare today released the roster of composers putting together the game's music. “The magic of BioWare games has always been the emotional power of the story, so music is extremely important to the experience,” said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series.
"Each composer has played an intricate role in delivering the combination of epic scope and delicate emotion that will make Mass Effect 3 the best game in the series.”
The roster includes:
Clint Mansell - Golden Globe nominated Hollywood composer recognized for scoring celebrated films including Black Swan, The Wrestler and Requiem for a Dream.
Christopher Lennertz - Emmy nominated Hollywood composer known for his work on the recent movie Horrible Bosses, also composed Mass Effect 2: Overlord, Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker, and won the Interactive Academy Award for Medal of Honor.
Cris Velasco - Known for composing the God of War series' score, has also worked on downloadable content Mass Effect 2: Kasumi and Mass Effect 2: Arrival.
Sam Hulick - Veteran to the Mass Effect series having composed the score for Mass Effect, Mass Effect: Bring Down the Sky and Mass Effect 2.
Sascha Dikiciyan - Video game industry veteran, known for composing the score for TRON: Evolution and the scores of Mass Effect 2: Kasumi and Mass Effect 2: Arrival.

Mass Effect 3 hits PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on March 6, 2012.
Thanks, I wasn't going onto their terrible Facebook page to see this.
The first two games had awesome soundtracks, so I am very excited to see how this will sound
Only Clint Mansell's name is required to know how *** the soundtrack will be.
Epic. Music is always the.....second thing i look for when i play a game to decide whether or not i like it, and this looks like it will not disappoint.
I don't recognize any of these names, but based on their credentials, I can only assume Mass Effect 3's soundtrack is in good hands.
Clint Mansell, nice. Although I found the movie The Fountain to be completely off it's rocker, he did compose one of my favorite movie soundtrack songs on it.
cool i cant wait for ME3
I honestly don't think those credentials are impressive Mr.s Lennertz Mansell, Velasco, Hulick and Dikiciyan. You are going to make a terrible soundtrack.
Keed, I keed. Can't wait to hear more about the game. Is it March 6th yet?
clint mansell, amazing.
Clint Mansell is one of my favorite composers out there right now, glad to see he is returning for ME3.
