Legendary German artist Mona Mur – one of the leading names in Berlin's '80s industrial & post-punk music scene – will be joining forces with former KMFDM member En Esch to compose a “Symphony of Terror” for IO Interactive's upcoming video game sequel Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days. It's certain to be an unusual and unique project, so we dug a little deeper... read more about it on the other side!
According to Mur's game-music MySpace, she's been contributing original compositions over the past ten years to games like Balance, Culpa Innata 2: Chaos Rising and Velvet Assassin. For this project, she plans to create an unsettling “Industrial Terror Ambiance” for the game's gritty, ultraviolent follow-up, which is slated for release on August 27th.
Esch – who parted with KMFDM during their 1999 hiatus and founded the band Slick Idiot with fellow KMFDM alumni Günter Schulz – will be providing heavily-treated guitars and eerie noisescapes to the game. Mur and Esch have also collaborated on other projects recently, including the critically-acclaimed album 120 Tage: The Fine Art of Beauty and Violence.
