“Promise of the West”, the Horizon Forbidden West theme song played throughout the game’s announcement trailer, is finally available to stream on major streaming services (and download depending on the platform). Vocals by Julie Elven and composed by Joris De Man, this soothing track is one you don’t want to miss.

Also being the composer and sound designer behind the soundtrack of the first game, Horizon Zero Dawn, Joris De Man’s latest track is an intense yet mesmerising audible tease into the adventure Aloy has ahead. Elevated by Joris De Man’s powerfully captivating tracks, with Julie Elven providing the angelic vocals, the Horizon series’ exploration as a hunter through a post-apocalyptic world ruled by machines, feels almost magical.
Joris De Man’s musical prowess doesn’t end at the Horizon Zero Dawn soundtrack and the new Horizon Forbidden West theme song. His talents have also been heard on the soundtracks of Velocity Ultra, Velocity 2X and Guerrilla Game‘s other series, Killzone. The same goes for soundtrack and film vocalist, Julie Elven, whose velvety pipes can be heard across a variety of other games like World of Warcraft, League of Legends and Tomb Raider. Check out one of her other most recent performances, the League of Legends Star Guardian theme.
