Welcome again. First of all, I have to apologize for lack of entry yesterday. I can't promise such things will not repeat, but I assure you it will happen only on special occasions.
What can I write about Batman: Arkham City that weren't already written? Released in October 18, 2011, and scoring numerous awards (most noticeably: Game of the Year, Best Action Game, Best Action Adventure Game, Best Adventure Game, and Best Original Score) makes this installment of Dark Knight adventures the game you to hear about, unless you spend a decade living in some FiM forsaken cave in Himalaya.
No, this time we will talk about the character today's score is associated. One of the most dangerous of Batman enemies if not the most dangerous. The Demon's Head, Ra's Al Ghul.
His origins are quite inconstant depending on writers whim - being different in comics (which changes about as often as fashion trends), the video games, animated adaptations or the live action films. However most of them agree that he is centuries old eco-terrorist who prolongs his life using Lazarus Pits - an natural occurring phenomenon of chemical pools that's able to restore to health people who are at death's door...and even those who passed them.
As an enemy who have enormous amounts of experience, almost limitless resources thanks to his his centuries-old criminal organization "The Demon" and genius level intellect Ra's is an enemy who can put even Batman on the ropes. Not only that, Ra's own daughter - Talia - happens to be Bruce Wayne love interest. Well, one of them anyway.
But what all of this information have to do with music you ask? Well everything because todays muscial piece
is a theme for a boss battle with a man himself. Dark Knight being being at the death door and in need of the cure of his blood poisoning drinks alchemical formula from the Lazarus Pit's to buy more time. However side effect of those concoction includes hallucinations. Which is it's all fine since thanks to this, players are greeted with most intense fight in the game - at last in atmosphere. And Blood of the Demon is perfect theme for a climatic battle of halfway point of the Arkham City.
As a side note, all known and beloved Tara Strong also plays a role in the Arkham City as well as in the Arkham Orgins and Arkham Knight. Ms. Strong plays a role of the Harley Quinn. Somehow that's not surprising.
