Max Payne 3 was a pretty polarizing experience for many gamers, with Rockstar Games having taken the reins from original developer Remedy Entertainment and shifting the venue from the appropriately gritty and noir-perfect streets of New York to a Brazil with drug-induced screen effects, but one thing that practically all fans have agreed on is the brilliance of its soundtrack produced by one of Los Angeles’ leading industrial bands, HEALTH. As a means of celebrating Max Payne 3’s release a decade ago on May 15, 2012, HEALTH has announced that it will be serving up a new “Anniversary Edition” of the soundtrack that not only features iconic classics such as “TEARS” and “COMBAT DRUGS,” but unreleased tracks from the game. Max Payne 3 – The Official Soundtrack (Anniversary Edition) is coming later this year to digital streaming platforms and limited-edition vinyl.
To mark the 10-year anniversary of Max Payne 3, we are thrilled to announce Max Payne 3 – The Official Soundtrack (Anniversary Edition), a new version of the iconic soundtrack coming later this year to digital streaming platforms and limited-edition vinyl.
Featuring the evocative music of L.A. noise band HEALTH, Max Payne 3 – The Official Soundtrack (Anniversary Edition) also debuts previously unreleased tracks from the game.
Delivering a dark and driving industrial soundscape reflective of Max’s blurred and frayed mental state and the heavy atmosphere of the Max Payne series, HEALTH’s score for Max Payne 3 pushed their signature melancholy noise rock sound in new directions, with the track “TEARS” becoming a staple in the band’s captivating live shows.
