Silent Hill: Homecoming – One More Soul to the Call

With the release of Silent Hill 3, composer Akira Yamaoka began to include songs with full vocal tracks on the series soundtracks.  This tradition followed the series overseas, with the release of Silent Hill: Homecoming in 2008.

While many players believe the quality of Silent Hill took a sharp decline with the release of Homecoming, the soundtrack features one of the strongest tracks of the entire series.

The raw and rocking vocals of Mary Elizabeth McGlynn have been a great match for Silent Hill since the third game, and this song from Homecoming is no exception.  The lyrics mirror the tragic story of the game, telling the tale of a town that fulfills a dark ritual of child sacrifice to maintain stability and peace.
