Choicest VGM - VGM #467 - Universe at War: Earth Assault - Modern Design

Universe at War OST artwork

Soundtrack composed by Frank Klepacki

We now move on to another faction's soundtrack, the soundtrack for the Novus. Unlike the Hierarchy soundtrack, the Novus's soundtrack is heavily influenced by electronic and industrial music, instead of metal. This makes sense considering the Novus are a side consisting primarily of robots and machines. In terms of in-game lore, the creators of the Novus were wiped out by the Hierarchy. A machine, known as the Founder vowed to avenge his race, gathered what machines were left and produced what is known as the Novus. The Founder also created Mirabel, a member of the creator race from salvaged DNA.

This track called Modern Design is one of my favourites. It just oozes coolness and has got a great beat to match.

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.
