The noise rock band HEALTH are not only responsible for the in-game score of Max Payne 3, but are also creating exclusive songs for the soundtrack.
You can hear some of their work in the latest Max Payne 3 trailer -
“We’re really excited to be working with HEALTH on this project, says Ivan Pavlovich, Soundtrack Supervisor for Rockstar Games. “They’ve brought a distinct energy and atmosphere to the game that perfectly fits Max’s dark story.”
“Video games are redefining entertainment and whether people like it or not, they are becoming as culturally relevant as films,” said the band. “We feel that Rockstar’s projects have an undeniably raw and tasteful aesthetic. It’s vitally important to us that we be involved in things we respect artistically. Max Payne 3 has a complex story that unfolds mercilessly and we are excited to be a part of it.”
