Konami has announced that the forthcoming Silent Hill: Downpour will receive a soundtrack album release in March 2012.
Licht is best known for his acclaimed work on the popular TV series Dexter and has created a haunting, eerie musical accompaniment to prisoner Murphy Pendleton's unsettling journey through the eponymous cursed town.
The composer said: "I came up with a sound world that I feel amplifies and augments the player's experience. I incorporated numerous instruments including piano, mandolin and industrial sounds."
Silent Hill: Downpour also features a theme tune by Jonathan Davis, frontman of nu-metal band Korn, which is included on the album release.
