Batman: Arkham City Sountrack Included in the Special Collector's Edition
Batman: Arkham City - The Album will be released on October 4th, two weeks prior to Batman: Arkham City's North American release. The Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition of the game will include an album download along with additional bonus content.
If the soundtrack is any reflection of what Bruce Wayne listens to when cruising around in the Bat Mobile, expect to find a mix of Coheed and Cambria, Panic! At The Disco, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Apparently when cracking the skulls of thugs, the Dark Knight enjoys listening to an "eclectic mix of dynamic, atmospheric songs."
Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez said, “I write in a very conceptual format with the stories that surround Coheed and Cambria, but Batman has a much larger, defined history and rules that go along with it. My goal was to find universal themes from Batman’s existing history to help give the lyrics legs and dimension so that the song could live within that world.” Other artists featured on the Batman: Arkham City album took a similar approach when contributing to the album with their own unique interpretations of the stories surrounding Batman.
