“You are a Brigador in the distant future. A combat pilot guiding both his assault mech and the future of Solo Nobre; A colony-planet once owned by a shadowy Corporation. To regain control of its investment, the Corporation hires Brigadors; mercenaries willing to destroy their home planet and take the lives of their fellow colonists in exchange for wealth beyond imagination and a one way ticket off of a planet in dire conflict.”
Having released over fourteen albums, three film soundtracks and a slew of remixes, Makeup and Vanity Set (Matthew Pusti) is still exploring new territory. The latest release, Brigador Volume II, expands the universe created with the original score into a dark, dystopian musical world. These tracks were created to allow players to explore the outer reaches of world of Solo Nobre. The darker, more complex analog world presented on Vol II is an uncompromising final chapter to the musical vision of the game.
Makeup and Vanity Set has crafted a sonic experience that sets the tone for a world gone wrong, where the impulse to fight grows to become our first instinct. The initial compilation of twelve tracks focus on the intensity of gameplay and the urgency of survival.
Brigador marks Makeup and Vanity Set’s debut into video game soundtrack composition that boasts over two hours of some of his possibly most enduring music. Volume 2 releases Oct 19, 2016.
