You can count Emmy and Golden Globe nominations among the list of the BioWare music department’s accolades. The publisher has revealed some of the talent that contributed to the final chapter in the Mass Effect trilogy, from series veterans who have been around since the first game to newcomers who have worked on films like Horrible Bosses and Requiem for a Dream.

Clint Mansell is the Golden Globe nominee who’s resume includes Black Swan, The Wrestler and Requiem for a Dream. Christopher Lennertz has won an Interactive Academy Award for his work on the Medal of Honor series and composed the score for the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC pack for Mass Effect 2.

Series veteran Sam Hulick, who composed the score to Mass Effect and its DLC returns to the fray as well as Sascha Dikiciyan, who scored Mass Effect 2’s Arrival DLC. Chris Velasco, the man responsible for the God of War series’ soundtrack also helped out with the compositions in Arrival and lends a hand in Mass Effect 3.

Much of what makes Mass Effect games what they are is the grandiose score that accompanies some of the series’ biggest moments and it looks like the third installment is looking to be just as memorable, if not moreso, than its predecessors.
