Aliens: Colonial Marines is the soundtrack album to the 2013 video game Aliens: Colonial Marines, composed by Kevin Riepl. Following the game's release, it was made available to download for free via Riepl's website, along with printable artwork, although the download links have since been removed. The music can still be streamed free of charge.

OverviewEdit

Riepl's score for the game delivers "all new themes and atmospheric underscores while staying faithful to the franchise's iconic scores of Ridley Scott's and James Cameron's classic sci-fi horror cinema. Infusing his haunting, sweeping and bombastic orchestral score with familiar nods and intense cinematic action music performed by full live orchestra, Riepl draws on his own classical training and film scoring background to create an authentic Aliens: Colonial Marines score that will immerse players in the definitive Aliens gaming experience."[1]
