Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance has a dark, intense and atmospheric soundtrack that perfectly matched with the franchise's resurrection in the 2000s, courtesy of Dan Forden, Rich Carle and Vince Pontarelli.
"Lost Tomb" is one of the game's standout tracks, with a threatening techno beat and percussion mixed with creepy synth patterns.
"Kuatan Palace" uses a slow-paced, incredibly eerie electronic track that evokes a truly evil vibe. Possibly one of the darkest tracks in the entire series.
"Lava Shrine" has an energetic, old-school 90s rave theme that will remind fans of the movies.
Mortal Kombat: Deception continues the dark and threatening style of Deadly Alliance's sound, albeit without Dan Forden working on the music. That being said, the soundtrack still stands on its own while retaining the series' spirit.
The trailer for Geras' reveal uses a brutal instrumental version of "Decimator" by All Good Things.
The launch trailer has a pretty impressive remix of the classic "Mortal Kombat" theme.
The Tournament stage in the game itself uses a different, but no less kickass version of the "Techno Syndrome".
For the stage music themselves, a lot of fans particularly like the somber "Shang Tsung's Island Ruins" and the trap-meets-metal of "Black Dragon Fight Club".
Shao Kahn's trailer uses the balls-crushingly awesome "Soul Crusher" by Liquid Cinema.
"Rise" plays during the start of the credits. Listen closely, and you'll realize it's a remix of the song used in the debut trailer. Coming off Story Mode's ending, it truly does feel make you feel like you've witnessed the end of an era.
"The Teahouse (Day)" pays homage to the first two games of the series by incorporating their motifs and mixing them with a variety of strings and percussion for an authentic Eastern feel. The Night variation has a more intense sound, with added plucked strings and sounds of bells ringing to show that this teahouse is a place of battle, no matter the time of day.
"Tarkatan Colony" is an excellent mix of intense and mysterious, with its mix of heavy, pounding percussion and tribal horns in the first round, a perfect fit for the brutality of the Tarkatans. The subsequent round's music makes the tribal influence even more prominent by ramping up the tempo and adding some strings for an even more intense track.
"Cage Mansion" brings back the techno feel of the 3D Midway era and intermixes it with '80s-style motifs, with heavy synths and pulsing beats, perfectly fitting the showboating personality of Johnny Cage.
Mortal Kombat: Conquest: Whatever else one can say about this show's quality in terms of writing and acting, there is no denying that it more than lived up to the franchise's reputation for great use of electronic rock. Special mention goes to the theme used in the fight between Kung Lao and Shang Tsung in the pilot episode and the track from the episode in which Reptile fights a member of his race. And of course, the theme song is suitably blood pumping for an action show.
