Sumthing Else Music Works, the premier label dedicated to licensing and distributing video game soundtracks, and SQUARE ENIX, one of the most influential providers of digital entertainment content in the world, today announced the release of the original music score from the highly anticipated new TOMB RAIDER™ video game developed by Crystal Dynamics. The TOMB RAIDER Original Soundtrack composed by Jason Graves is scheduled for a worldwide physical release on March 5th, 2013 to retail outlets through Sumthing Else Music Works www.sumthing.com, and for digital download at Amazon MP3, iTunes and other digital music sites. The TOMB RAIDER Original Soundtrack CD is also available to pre-order from the TOMB RAIDER Official Store www.tombraiderstore.com.

Crystal Dynamics entrusted BAFTA award-winning composer Jason Graves with their ambitious reboot of the iconic TOMB RAIDER franchise, giving him creative freedom to infuse atmosphere, emotion and authenticity to Lara Croft's origins story through his score. The end result combines found sounds, authentic percussion and a truly unique custom instrument interwoven with orchestral themes and textures. The TOMB RAIDER Original Soundtrack features 20 compositions from the game's original score.

Composer Jason Graves: "What you hold in your hands is the culmination of more than two years of work and musical exploration. It contains all the musical elements I love, wrapped up neatly together - mysterious textures, evocative percussion and thematic developments to die for. It's been wonderful accompanying Lara through her first adventure. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed composing it."

TOMB RAIDER explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold. In the all-new TOMB RAIDER, a survivor is born. For more information about TOMB RAIDER visit www.tombraider.com.

5/5 I was able to listen to this score and as you can imagine this is awesome... it is taken into a different direction a great direction.
