DmC Devil May Cry Soundtrack Composed By Noisia And Combichrist

By Ishaan . June 27, 2012 . 10:00am

This morning, Capcom announced that DmC Devil May Cry’s soundtrack will be produced by electronic music group, Noisia, and industrial rock band, Combichrist. Both groups have composed new music that will play during the game, and Capcom have licensed Combichrist’s catalogue tracks to add to the game as well. You can listen to one of Noisia’s tracks from the game below:



“We had great freedom but were also bound by certain criteria typical in the game world,” reads a Noisia statement. “These are challenging boundaries (for example; consistency in sonics over 180 minutes of music) but also lots of space in terms of dynamics & progression and instrumentation being able to create soundscapes without having to worry about holding the attention of a dancefloor.”


DmC Devil May Cry will be released on January 15th, 2013 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game will also be released for PC at a later date.

  • Just keep “Sent to Destroy” in the rave battle mission and I’ll be happy. =)

    • z_merquise

      Hey, that’s the song they used in the E3 trailer. Thanks for sharing!

    • MrRobbyM

      Thank you. You are my new favorite person.

    • OMG I love this song! Thanks for the post Garyuu! =^_^=

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Not bad. Can’t wait to see people complain than it’s not metal like DMC3 though.

    • Go2hell66

      Dmc3 didnt really have any metal it was mostly that german techno dance crap…

      • Kris

        What’s your definition of metal? I mean, DMC3’s music wasn’t exactly Eurobeat or anything…

      • puchinri

        Techno dance. . .? But you said German, so maybe I need to check out German techno dance.

      • Nemesis_Dawn

        It was nu-metal, with techno elements thrown in.

    • I can imagine for a lot of people it’s not even a lack of metal, so much as that example track doesn’t really fit DMC. Maybe it’d work as an intro / cutscene track, but otherwise it’s way too slow for the crazy and off-the-wall action that’s flying around the screen in a Devil May Cry game.

  • MrRobbyM

    Forgive my granniness but whats with kids and dubstep these days? I mean, this is pretty good for dubstep, but is it needed in every high-profile game now?

    • Dubstep sure is the new black this generation. It always gets you pumped or it puts you in this rhythmic motion. I don’t see it often in games though, so considering the new tone that DMC’s taking, it merits some dubstep and aggrotech, which I find very welcoming.

      • MrRobbyM


        “Dubstep sure is the new black this generation”

        That reminded me of “Orange is the new pink!” from the Josie and the Pussycats movie.

        • Nemesis_Dawn

          That’s jerkin’!

  • Abhishek Posooa

    They could have asked Dir en grey and Girugamesh to do the soundtrack >.>

  • Go2hell66

    Wub wib wub wub wub. Its what all the cool kids are listening to these days

    • Pang Chee Jie

      Funny. I thought that the cool kids are the ones hating on dub step since hating on what’s popular is the hip thing to do nowadays.

      • puchinri

        I thought it’s mostly a hipster thing to do? But yeah, dubstep is popular and not. 

        • amagidyne

          I always thought hipsters listened to indie rock and wore cosmetic thick-rimmed glasses. Why does this definition need to be so wide? I liked calling people hipsters back when it was cool. Before it got mainstream!

          • puchinri

            I thought it technically was a wide definition because of their very nature? Forcibly trying to be indie and ironic? (The glasses thing is funny too though, and my hipster friend totes meets that requirement as well.)

            And that’s so hipster to call it mainstream~!
            Kidding, joudan desu~! Kinda? >u<

  • Pang Chee Jie

    There’s also a sample by Chombichrist
    You don’t need to download it. There’s a player on the site.

  • DS23

    Looks like Japanese devs are digging industrial stuff these days between Jimmy from MSI doing Lollipop Chainsaw and Combichrist on this.

    • Nemesis_Dawn

      I really don’t think you could call MSI industrial. 

      • DS23

        They’re self described as ‘Industrial Jungle P***y Punk’ or something along those lines! 

  • This is in no way Devil May Cry. I hate the fact that they took Devil May Cry and made it “modern” in terms of style and music. Devil May Cry had a certain style that matched it perfectly, and now they’re making it all mainstream… >_>

  • Not My cup of tea but that whole “We don’t F__ck with a God” thing was just plain unnecessary.

  • Göran Isacson

    Can’t say I fancy this theme much since it felt like it didn’t even pick up and reached the necessary speed for a fight theme until the very last minute. That being said I don’t really know in which context this particular track will be used, but if it’s not for fighting and say, exploring… I think the dubstep will just make me feel stressed out.

    That being said, I’m fine with dubstep on the whole even if most of it just makes me think of this funny chat-conversation I read once on some site:
    One guy: I’m tired sing me a lullaby
    The other guy: Rock a bye baby
    on a treetop
    When the tree swings
    One guy again: Screw you I’m going to bed now

    • MrRobbyM

      I thought about that chat too. Hilarious.

  • Raise your hand if you hate this because it’s different!!!

    Now everyone with your hands up, LEAVE THIS POST AND NEVER RETURN.

    • A Bomb!

      What if I hate it because i’m sick of dubstep in everything that I want to play?  

      • That is understandable.

      • Clifford Pierre Louis

         This isn’t dubstep, like Pang Chee Jie said “Why do people always have to assume that when there’s that wobble noise,
        it’s automatically dub step? It’s electro with a tinge of dub
        step(read: It is not dub step). That isn’t even taking into account the
        BPM and all those technical stuff.” :P



        • M’iau M’iaut


      • (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

  • Yesfir

    Everything about this game so far just feels so right when it comes to Devil May Cry game. Six more months, boo.

  • Dubstep? You’ve gotta be ****ing kidding me.

    • Pang Chee Jie

      Why do people always have to assume that when there’s that wobble noise, it’s automatically dub step? It’s electro with a tinge of dub step(read: It is not dub step) or more specifically dirty electro house. That isn’t even taking into account the BPM and all those technical stuff.

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    With each piece of news, I feel like Ninja Theory went into my brain and saw everything I ever wanted in a Devil May Cry game, and then did the exact opposite.

  • Roberto Armando Iraheta

    Electronic and Industrial? Yuck. It’s like they don’t want me to ever buy this.

  • ZBaksh386

    no idea who either of these two people are.

  • “Sent to Destroy” Enough said.

  • Mildra

    I approve of this musical direction, even if i’m reminded of the blade movies a little bit…..I don’t know why.

    Not that i’m complaining, though, each piece of news on the game over the last few months has pushed me from “cautious optimism” to “looking foward to it”.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    not my type of music, I just hope this is noy battle music, because it would really make the hype and overral pace of combat even more slow that what it is now with slow mo finishers.

  • British_Otaku

    Not a fan of the project, but the music “could” work. Not liking the song on it’s own doesn’t mean anything if they use a remix/instrumental in places or take samples of it for specific places… Though, I have seen music used poorly as in MadWorld (too much noise considering it isn’t an instrumental and it is going against the violent and constant narration).

    *Listens to the track*

    Meh, nothing special. Not one of those tracks you will listen to again for any real reason on it’s own, could have charm in the right moment. Maybe.

  • Nitraion

    They should using max anarchy’s music composer…
    they stupidly good…

    • Soundtrack of the year every year.

  • Clifford Pierre Louis

    It seems alot of people are complaining about how these people ruined the DMC series, but is not like this game is going to turn back time and make the other games in the series suck. If people are gonna judge this, then do it fairly and judge it on it’s own merit, because once you start comparing things you’ve really already ruined any potential this game had of being enjoyable for you…why do that to yourself, just go in with an open mind and give the game a chance :P

  • Asura

    I don’t see how people can complain about this. This is totally music that fits DMC, there’s no two ways about it.

    I still wish the song in the very first trailer made had a full version though. It felt Jet Set Radio-y.

  • Nikolai Sumcad

    Hoh man. I had clammy hands when before I clicked this article. DMC music was one of the major reasons I loved the game, being able to bang my head to the awesome vocals and mixed metal/rock. And I’m glad to say, this track does NOT disappoint! Love the disturbing electro trance feel of it

    • Damarius Wingfield

      That sir, is the power of DUBSTEP….Enough said!
