Composer Ramin Djawadi Scores Medal Of Honor

That's right! Linkin Park won't be the only highly respected musical act featured in EA's upcoming Medal of Honor reboot. The publisher announced today that a "deep, emotional score" for the game has been crafted by composer Ramin Djawadi.

EA worldwide executive of music and marketing Steve Schnur calls Djawadi's work "an epic score that brings the game into a whole new era" and "incredibly intense." Djawadi himself provides some explanation of the process of creating this music:

"Designing a score that captures both the scalpel-like quite professionalism of the Tier 1 Operators and the sledge hammer action of big military has been a unique challenge. The music is designed to dynamically ebb and flow, complementing the big action sequences with thundering electric guitar and bass, and the quiet stealth with haunting strings and hymns. It is like a Hollywood action movie score on steroids."

"Like a Hollywood action movie score on steroids" doesn't really fit with "deep, emotional score" in my book, but there you have it. If you're curious why getting Djawadi in the game is such a big deal for EA, you might want to check out his previous TV and film contributions, including Iron Man, Prison Break, and the recent Clash of the Titans remake.

You'll be able to hear the "deep, emotional" but also "thundering" score for yourself when Medal of Honor releases on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on October 12.
