Sumthing Else Music Works and THQ have announced that the upcoming Darksiders II will be receiving its very own two-disc soundtrack for you to listen while you're not riding into battle and restoring mankind.

The soundtrack will feature scores by Assassin's Creed and Hitman composer, Jesper Kyd, whose "emotionally dynamic [music] combines dark ethereal themes and melodic fantasy that enrich the player's cinematic journey through each of the game's unique realms".

You will be able to grab yourself a copy of the CD on the same day as Darksiders II, 14th August, but you can get your pre-orders in now if you're feeling extra keen.
