What Is That Mesmerising Gears Of War 3 Trailer Music?

One of the most striking elements of the Gears of War 3 trailer wasn't the tentacle monster, the female soldier or even the facial hair. Instead, it was the haunting music. What was the name of that song?

The tune is "Heron Blue" by folk rock group Sun Kil Moon, the current act from Red House Painters frontman Mark Kozelek. Named after a Korean boxer, Sun Kil Moon has lent its music to feature films like Steve Martin's Shopgirl and Friday Night Lights, the big screen version of the book by the same name.

Sun Kil Moon's albums include Ghosts of the Great Highway, Tiny Cities and April — not to mention various EPs.


    one word. EPIC. (not as epic as when it's coupled with the gears 3 trailer, but still awesome)
