Choicest VGM - VGM #469 - Universe at War: Earth Assault - Electrode

Universe at War OST artwork

Soundtrack composed by Frank Klepacki

This is the perfect track to listen to as you start building up your base while playing as the Novus. Gotta love those syncopated rhythms, that industrial and robotic mood.

And if you wanted to learn something new today, an electrode is technically defined as an electrical conductor used to make contact with a non-metallic part of a circuit, such as a semiconductor, an electrolyte or a vacuum. The word 'electrode' was actually coined by English polymath, scientist, priest, philosopher, theologian and historian of science, William Whewell (Whew! No pun intended, that's a lot of things to be famous for). He did so at the request of famous scientist, Michael Faraday. The word Electrode is derived from two Greek words: elektron meaning amber (from which the word 'electricity' is derived) and hodos meaning 'way'.

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.
