Lords of Shadow soundtrack earns two IFMCA nominations
Oscar Araujo’s soundtrack to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow has earned two nominations for The International Film Music Critics Association awards. While the awards are obviously generally intended for film, it turns out that video game soundtracks are also allowed, and this isn’t even the only video game soundtrack in the running. Araujo is, excitingly, nominated for “Breakout Composer of the Year,” and Lords of Shadow’s nominated under the awfully conditional “Best Original Score for a Video Game or Interactive Media” category.
While the score to Lords of Shadow was impressive, and definitely evoked Lord of the Rings very strongly, I’m still surprised to learn that any organization like this will give this kind of recognition to video games. Because after all, those are for children and murderers.
Look for the results on February 25th.castlevania: lords of shadow, oscar araujo, soundtrack
