Anubis: Zone of the Enders

Anubis: Zone of the Enders
[Audio CD, 1 Disc]
Source: Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner [PS2]
Composer: Norihiko Hibino and Konami Music Entertainment
Release Date: 2003
Label: Sony/Columbia

The Anubis soundtrack features most of the music used in Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, which was released in 2003 for the PS2. The Zone of the Enders series is produced by Hideo Kojima, whose name is synonymous with the popular and longstanding Metal Gear franchise. The soundtrack is composed by Konami Music Entertainment under Norihiko Hibino, who has also done extensive work within the Metal Gear series (PS2 generation onward). As such, there's some common ground between these various soundtracks, but for the most part The 2nd Runner's soundtrack has a distinct feel. The game centers around fast-paced and instinctual mecha combat and the soundtrack does an excellent job of setting this pace. The soundtrack as a whole can be described as an amalgamation of techno and hard hitting orchestra work. Some of the individual tracks can be repetitive, like any game soundtrack, but I feel that there's a good amount of solid, powerful work to listen to.
