Fans of the game will be able to get their hands on this sooner rather than later.

From the press release:

    Sumthing Else Music Works, Inc. proudly presents Red Faction®: Armageddon™ Original Soundtrack featuring the original music score from the highly anticipated sci-fi action video game developed by Volition Inc.®, an internal studio at THQ Inc. The soundtrack album was written, arranged and sequenced by composer and music producer Brian Reitzell as a truly immersive listening experience. Red Faction: Armageddon Original Soundtrack is scheduled for release on May 31st, 2011 to retail outlets through Sumthing Else Music Works, and for digital download at, Amazon MP3, iTunes® and other digital music sites.

    Formerly a recording and touring musician for bands such as REDD KROSS and AIR, Brian Reitzell is also known for composing innovative, emotional film scores such as “30 Days of Night,” “Stranger Than Fiction,” “Friday Night Lights,” and most recently “Red Riding Hood,” as well as music supervision and scoring on several Sofia Coppola films including “Lost In Translation.”

    “Brian intended for this to be a ‘record’ in the truest sense – to be its own standalone experience start-to-finish,” said Stephen Hodde, Lead Audio Designer, Red Faction: Armageddon. “He’s spent a lot of time arranging these compositions so that the record presents the game’s content, but also follows its own emotional arc.”

    In Red Faction: Armageddon, half a century after the Red Faction® resistance freed Mars, the red planet again becomes a battleground. Colonists struggle for survival in the underground mines after the surface is rendered uninhabitable. When Darius Mason, grandson of revolution heroes Alec Mason and Samanya, unknowingly releases a long-dormant evil, Armageddon is unleashed on Mars. As settlements are torn asunder, only Darius and the Red Faction can save mankind. The battle will take them to the core of the storm-blasted planet through ice caves and lava flows until they are face to face against the unspeakable threat. Red Faction: Armageddon expands on the critically acclaimed, best-selling franchise with new, groundbreaking challenges. You are humanity’s last hope for survival.
