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.
CLint mansell is one of the best composers in the biz. this game is going to have an epic soundtrack just because of him.
Nice! I love musical scores in video games.
Oh my, this is gonna be quite epic
I have to say I'm not familiar with most of the composers's names since I don't pay much attention to the credits <_< but I do know that Mass Effect's (both) soundtracks are fantastic, so I can't wait to see how this turns out.
so glad i pre-ordered that collector's edition
I'm not worried about the music anymore, seems like some great composers are going into this.
They can do anything as long as they don't change the galaxy map music.
