The lights are on
There are some composers in the gaming world that have fingerprint-like style. If you've ever played a Halo title (even the ones he wasn't directly involved with), you'll likely know the themes woven by Martin O'Donnell.
Bungie has opened the mailbag again today, and this time they pulled out a letter that inspired them to share the backing audio to the live-action Destiny trailer "The Law of the Jungle." It's only sixty seconds long, which is just about enough time for O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori to get us excited to see the Destiny gameplay reveal that's planed for Sony's press conference on June 10.

Man, hearing that epicness makes me want Destiny so much. It also reminds me of how disappointingly sub standard Halo 4's soundtrack was. 343 should have had Michael Giacchino do the soundtrack for Halo 4. He's the next best composer to Marty.
His music is half the reason why I want to play Destiny. I missed his music so much in Halo 4, it just didn't sound the same and didn't have anything instantly recognizable like the other games did. The soundtracks for the Bungie halos games really helped sell the experience and immerse the player into the moment. Even though I didn't really care for ODST I think it had one of the most underrated soundtracks ever, it fit the mood and tone of the game perfectly. Really looking forward to Destiny.
I literally cannot describe my immense love for O'Donnell and Salvatori's works. They're too great to encompass in mere words.
I can't wait for this game, my only concern is that they don't remove content to make it fit on the PS3's smaller engine...
