Diablo III Music News

Posted 9 Nov 2012 by

Thanks to the indefatigable Fmulder for finding two tidbits related to Diablo III music. The first is that the London Philharmonic Orchestra has released a new recording, The Greatest Video Game Music, Volume 2. It includes their symphonic renditions of numerous famous video game compositions, including Diablo III: Overture. The Amazon page has a full track listing, samples of all, and you can buy the whole thing or any individual tracks for $.99.

Elsewhere, Irish choral group Anuna included two pieces of Diablo III music in a recent concert in Dublin’s National Concert Hall. The video below shows them doing “Black Soulstone” and “Incantation.” They’re both excellent late night creepy mood-setters, with lots of voices mixing and blending to create a very gothic, wordless sort of vibe. Watch it in the dark with the sound way up.
