Los Angeles, CA (February 11, 2013)-Film and video game composer Kevin Riepl has created an original symphonic score for the Aliens: Colonial Marines video game, launching worldwide on February 12, 2013.
Developed by Gearbox Software in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox, Aliens: Colonial Marines is described as an authentic addition to the Aliens canon. Continuing the legacy of Jerry Goldsmith's music in Alien and James Horner's music in Aliens, Riepl's original score features all-new themes and atmospheric underscores while staying faithful to the franchise's scores. Riepl draws on his own classical training and film scoring background, infusing his orchestral score with familiar nods and intense cinematic action music performed by full live orchestra.
Composing music for multiple entertainment genres, Riepl's scores have been part of numerous indie films such as ABCs of Death, Clemency, The Aggression Scale (a Global Music Awards winner) and the recent holiday season horror feature, Silent Night.
