The way fans of the Deus Ex series talk about Invisible War, you’d expect violent thunderclouds and meteor showers to suddenly appear whenever the game is mentioned. However, like it or not, it’s hard to deny that its moody and understated soundtrack was one of its major strengths. For today’s debut of the musical feature “Hey! Listen” here on Kaboom Shark, we’re going to delve into the game’s main theme.
Composed by Alex Brandon, the track is essentially a remake of the first Deus Ex‘s theme, but whereas the original had a sort of proud orchestral feel, this one feels a good deal more eerie and synthetic, which certainly fits in with the themes of conspiracy and cybernetic augmentation. Of particular note are the female vocal performances, which help to elevate the sense of scope and significance. Let us know what you think!
