Mortal Kombat (Original Arcade Game - Menu Theme & Pit Level Medley- Orchestral) by Brent Silk published on 2011/12/28 06:01:15 +0000 For those who love the original Mortal Kombat theme I've created this medley which contains my take on both the opening menu tune from the arcade game as well as a tune inspired by the Pit level. This is one of my favorite Arcade Game soundtracks ever. The original team who created the first Mortal Kombat video game only consisted of four people. Yes, that's right. FOUR people. One of them was a sound guy, who created one of the most inspirational sound tracks in video game history. This take on the Mortal Kombat Theme first begins with traditional Chinese instrumentation for the Menu music, and then gets into some rock music complemented with an orchestra (with a few Chinese instruments & Japanese percussion). The original Mortal Kombat music was heavily inspired by early 70s Chinese Kung Fu movies. So in reality, this track is an inspiration from an inspiration... Enjoy!
