The Music of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

It's fairly obvious that I'm very excited about the upcoming Far Cry expansion, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. This 80's sci-fi retro re-imagining is crawling with style from the look of the games website and right down to the music. Music that I've been listening to constantly since last night.

The music for Blood Dragon is being handled by a Melbourne, Australia retro-electronic group called PowerGlove who look like an amalgamation of GWAR and My Little Pony. Or in other words, awesome. They've provided three tracks from the game so far on their Soundcloud website featuring a thumpy, lasery, sound that's flashing me back to watching bad sci-fi at 1am on showtime.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to put on some stone-washed jeans.

    As soon as I heard the first beats, my eyes lighten up with joy. Looking forward to how both the soundtrack and game come along.

    I fell in love with Power Glove after Hobo With A Shotgun, their music for The Plague was beyond fantastic! So glad this DLC is actually being made, we have so many retro side scrolling games in this style but we need some more detailed full games as well so I'm so jazzed for this!

    PowerGlove is not the band making the music, Power Glove is making the music, totally different band. Not trying to be a dick but you're giving credit to the wrong people. Your thumbnail on the main page is correct though. PowerGlove does heavy rock/metal covers of video games and TV shows, Power Glove makes 80's style cyberpunk-ish music.

    If the music makes me want to take my clothes off and dance in the rain, that means Powerglove is amazing. Can't wait for this game.
