Release Date: 2015-07-05

Rise of the Black Dogs: Re-Orchestrated is a forty-four-track soundtrack released by the Heracles Brigade as part of the Rise of the Black Dogs Decompilation Project. It includes the original soundtrack by Matthew Simmonds, a newly orchestrated version designed to match the style of the Battlezone and Red Odyssey soundtracks, and the source MIDI and sample files.[1]

The tracks were pieced together and re-orchestrated by Anthony Hadley in Cubase 5 using Kontakt 5 and Edirol Orchestral. Despite having been begun in early April 2015 the project took roughly a quarter of that time to produce; two weeks were spent repairing the MIDI files extracted from the game cartridge and a further two were spent on the re-orchestration itself.

Track Listing Edit

As well as all twenty two tracks and five samples from the Battlezone: Rise of the Black Dogs Soundtrack, the downloadable release of the re-orchestrated version includes the following tracks. While the original tracks do not have names, the names of the new versions are derived from the missions the tracks are used in.
