Choicest VGM - VGM #426 - Deus Ex - OceanLab 2

Deus Ex title screen

Track composed by Alexander Brandon

There are actually two suites of music for the Oceanlab level and this is the second. Towards the end of the Oceanlab level you actually come across Bob Page's henchman, Walton Simmons (the Director of FEMA) and this is the first opportunity you'll get at killing him. Incidentally, did you know that Tom Hall voices Walton Simmons. Yes, that Tom Hall, the same that created Commander Keen!

The Oceanlab 2 UMX is split into four parts but I decided to take the first default background music and the combat music, which starts playing at 1:45. The first part is groovy with a great toe-tapping beat and the combat music part, as it is with most combat music in Deus Ex, definitely gets the adrenaline pumping and is just so damn cool.

The UMX also has a cryptic message in the sample list as shown below:
