Laced Records pressed Serious Sam 4 deluxe vinyl soundtrack

Laced Records of London has published the Serious Sam 4 deluxe double vinyl soundtrack album. The analog record release—also available through distributors Light in the Attic in Seattle and Black Screen Records in Germany—ships on 180-gram translucent yellow discs in May of 2022.

The first-person shooter prequel pits the Earth Defense Force, led by Sam “Serious” Stone and his squad of misfit commandos, against Mental’s hordes of alien invaders. Composed by Damjan Mravunac at developer Croteam, the 19-track soundtrack features orchestral rock recordings, operatic choir, bluegrass and cinematic synths.

Original hand-drawn sleeve art for Laced Records' vinyl soundtrack is by Tom J Manning, with mastering by engineer Joe Caithness. Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck performs on “Hero Too,” while Croatian Heavy Metal band Undercode returns to the series on tracks “Dominate the Battlefield”, “Foreverwar”, and “Panopticon”.

Serious Sam 4 is available for Windows and Google Stadia. Steam's Deluxe Digital edition comes with the soundtrack and digital art book. The soundtrack album is available for purchase separately through Bandcamp, and streaming on YouTube and Spotify.

Croteam’s in-house composer Damjan Mravunac went full bore with the soundtrack, stuffing it full of thunderous orchestral rock, heavy drums, sweet-ass guitar tones, sweeping melodies, operatic choir, bluegrass (?!), and cinematic synths.

It also wouldn’t be a throwback FPS without a dash of thrash: Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck lends his axe to “Hero Too”; while Croatian Heavy Metal band Undercode return to the Serious Sam series, featuring on the tracks “Dominate the Battlefield”, “Foreverwar”, and “Panopticon”.
