Yes, I had to add "Martian" in brackets since this game's soundtrack doesn't have just one "The Eve of the War" track, but two! Earlier on we had the Human one and now we get to listen to the Martian one. Like other tracks on the Martian soundtrack, this has definitely got a cool, danceable techno beat to it. You could just imagine all those Martians, sitting in their hoods, headphones on, grooving to the beat.

This is one of two tracks that plays when you're maneuvering units in the Real-Time Strategy part of the game: the other one which will feature next time is "The Fighting Machine".
