“This is a dream soundtrack for me to have so many amazing bands with songs that fit the game so well,” said Tripwire Interactive President John Gibson, “Only an independent game studio would put together such a brutal game soundtrack, and it’s great to be able to partner with the independent label Solid State Records to release it.”
“Tripwire has done an amazing and innovative job at integrating music into the DNA of Killing Floor 2”, said Solid State Records A&R Representative Adam Skatula, “They’ve hand-picked some of the best bands the metal genre has to offer, and we’ve loved every moment of being a part of this.”
The Killing Floor 2 original soundtrack features a unique mix of original compositions, licensed rock and metal tracks that offer the perfect backdrop for slaying waves of Zeds.
