Choicest VGM - VGM #465 - Universe at War: Earth Assault - Prepare for Oblivion

Universe at War OST artwork

Soundtrack composed by Frank Klepacki

Similar to Mechanical Brain this track is a treat for those who are a fan of Frank Klepacki's music as yet again, it's heavily influenced by a track off the Command & Conquer soundtrack. This time inspiration is taken from "Prepare for Battle".

Speaking of the Command & Conquer soundtrack, here's some information about it courtesy of Wikipedia. Command & Conquer was the first game by Westwood Studios to feature streaming music instead of MIDI (the music was at a really low bitrate though - 22k mono!). Apparently Klepacki was influenced by Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd and Nine Inch Nails when producing the soundtrack.

The soundtrack was originally offered for free off the Petroglyph forums but you can download a copy from the Free VGM section at Choicest Games. It's also available for streaming off Frank Klepacki's website
