'Hitman: Blood Money' (PS2/XBox/X360/PC) Original Soundtrack Announced

When assassins from Agent 47's contract agency, The ICA, are eliminated in a series of hits, it seems a larger, more powerful agency has entered the fray. For Agent 47 it's business as usual, until he suddenly loses contact with The ICA. Sensing that he may be the next target, he travels to America, where he prepares to make a killing.

The Hitman: Blood Money Original Soundtrack features over an hour of original music from the game written and produced by British Academy award-winning composer Jesper Kyd. His powerful blend of ambient, electronic and symphonic orchestrations beautifully enhances the cool, dark cinematic flair of the Hitman series and evokes the sinister mindset of the world's most deadly assassin Agent 47 as he travels to America and prepares to make a killing.

Highlights from the 16-track album include the operatic, choral crescendos and foreboding drums of “Apocalypse,” the surreal soundscapes capturing “Night Time in New Orleans,” the retro lounge vibe of “Vegas,” the hypnotic underground dance grooves of “Club Heaven,” and the Hitman: Blood Money theme, “Agent 47 Main Title.”

Nile Rodgers, veteran music producer and Sumthing Else label founder, said, "Jesper Kyd is one of the most cutting-edge and unique composers writing music for ANY medium. Whether he's scoring a video game or movie it's sure to be a hit and once you've heard the Hitman: Blood Money soundtrack his music will own you!"

Hitman: Blood Money delivers an experience that is the closest gamers will ever have come to the real world of the assassin. Developed by Io-Interactive, Hitman: Blood Money is released in May 2006 on Xbox 360, Xbox, PS2, and PC.
