Mick Gordon leaves Iron Galaxy, Atlas Plug and Celldweller to compose KI Season 3 OST instead

From Mick’s Facebook page post:

From Ultra-combo news post:

The Q&A Interview is here --> http://www.ultra-combo.com/introducing-atlas-plus-celldweller-composers-for-season-3/ <–

So what do you guys think of this? Are you disappoined/excited? Where do you think will Mick go next?

IIRC, Mick never worked for IG. He was simply an outside contractor signed to do the music for S1 and S2.


#3

Celldweller is weird. He is super skilled but makes the worst music of all times.


#4

I knew this was coming, but I was at least hopeful he’d finish up Tusk & Kim Wu’s soundtrack before moving on.


#5

True.

On subject, Mick did a extremely wonderful job on the music for Season 1 and 2 (the only thing the was a bit lackluster imo. was Riptor’s theme but that was due to time constraints so that’s understandable).
To me he set the bar on what a fighting game OST could and should be (something that has been overlooked a lot the last few years, especially compared to SF4).
So yeah, I’m sad to see him go :frowning: I’ll wait and see with the new composers will do but they have big shoes to fill imho.

So much going on and the ultra-combo forums are still down…

I think Mick did a great job, although I’m not as obsessed with KI’s music as many of the fans. I’m not hugely into heavy metal, which is the sort of baseline for KI’s music. I tend to like the tracks that are unpopular - Maya’s and Riptor’s, for example. Anyway, Mick was certainly beloved and he will be missed by the community. Having said that I think the Battletoads theme is really well done so maybe these new guys with the weird millennial anonymous internet names will do a good job too.

His integration of the music in the menu’s and in fights and in ultra’s was spectacular, it’s a shame he couldn’t finish the last season :frowning:


#8

Safe travels Mick, we’ll miss yah.
Based on the Rash theme it seems we’re in good hands thankfully.

I was sad about this at first, but Mick has done a lot for the game already and I’m sure they new guys will give the music the attention it deserves.
