Midsummer Songaday Day 5


This song was created for the video game RAGE, which I played through and reviewed here!
Anyway, this song very much models what the musical tone SHOULD have been in RAGE, but it wasn't. That game instead opted for a weird horror-esque screeching that sounded more appropriate in Dead Space than RAGE. This song finally showed up at the credits.
LISTEN TO THIS BEFORE YOU PLAY RAGE. Seriously. It's a good song, it'll give you a good idea of the mood for the first bit of the game, and if you hear it in the credits first it'll probably leave you with a bad taste in your mouth thanks to the amazingly abrupt and unsatisfying ending it comes directly after.
I don't actually know anything about Mark Lanegan though. Oh, and sorry if the video has some crackly quality to it in the latter half, all the videos I could find did that. I don't think it's that way in the soundtrack, but I couldn't find a better video. Cheers!

End Recording,
