When gamers speak passionately about their favourite titles from yesteryear you’ll often hear them mention how memorable a game’s soundtrack was. There’s no denying that many titles wouldn’t be half as good without the iconic music and gifted composers who helped define them. Would Final Fantasy VII and Silent Hill 2 have made such an impression on gamers’ psyches without Nobuo Uematsu or Akira Yamaoka composing the score? Somehow I doubt it.

Speaking of Akira Yamaoka, a behind the scenes video for Lollipop Chainsaw was recently released that takes a look at how Yamaoka and Jimmy Urine (lead singer of the band Mindless Self Indulgence) approached the challenge of composing the music for this upcoming zombie action title.

Take a look below:
