Call of Duty: Black Ops Multiplayer Reveal Hands-On

If you are a game music aficionado, then this Tuesday is a huge day for you with four big new releases inbound. We've got the intel on these new tunes, including music from Call of Duty: Black Ops, along with some free game tunage for you to download as we run down the news of the week from the video game music world.

On Tuesday the 16th, a quartet of game OST's hits shelves of both the physical and digital variety. Call of Duty: Black Ops is already out on iTunes, but, if you prefer the DRM-free MP3's sold by Amazon, Black Ops reports for download duty on Tuesday.

If music to accompany the sounds of zombie heads going "splut" is more your thing, there are two soundtracks from Sumthing Else Music Works droppping Tuesday for you. The music from both the recently released zombie-basher Dead Rising 2 along with a retro-release for Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles will lumber towards your music devices from Sumthing, Amazon and iTunes. Also releasing Tuesday from Sumthing is a two-disc director's cut edition of the soundtrack to Darksiders.

Dead Rising 2 Soundtrack

Just announced by Sumthing Else Music Works this week, is the upcoming release of Speed Racer: The SoundTRACK (get it?). While the handful of Speed Racer games over the years haven't really been hits, the four decades-old anime still has a loyal following, so you might want to keep this one on your in-dash radar.

A duo of indie game soundtracks are being offered on a "pay what you want basis". Nobuooo lists the 18-track OST for Zeno Clash as being available for download over at Yawma. And while the idea of paying artists what you want for their work may sound counter-intuitive, Super Meat Boy composer dannyB tweeted that people are paying a dollar over the suggested price for the OST to Team Meat's popular platfomer. Take a listen below and you will know why. 

If pay what you want is still too much for your budget, how about free? Yes, you heard us right friends, free! Publisher Deep Silver is giving away five MP3's over the next few weeks from their upcoming off-roader, nail'd. Already available is “Attack Position“, an instrumental by Stephen Carpenter of Deftones along with Raymond Herrera and Christian Olde Wolbers formerly of Fear Factory. A second track called "Decimator" whose lyrics were done by Wayne Static of Static X is also available. Head on over to the nail'd Facebook page and click on "Wall" to find these downloads.

Earlier this week, super-composer Bear McCreary tweeted an update about his music for SOCOM 4.

And last but certainly not least, to those of you music fans who are helping the soundtracks for both the film and the game (with music by Anamanguchi) of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World dominate the soundtrack download charts at Amazon, we salute your epicness. Be sure to come back tomorrow, when The Feed reviews the soundtrack album for Fable III.
