Music similar to Metal Gear Solid soundtrack you may know of?

Hey guys! I need some help over here!

Lately I have been really diggin the whole soundtrack of Metal Gear Solid series, and I would be interested to know if you guys know any similar type of music/artists that make similar music?

Here are some examples that convey quite well what I am looking for:




I could go all day, but those are good examples. I really like the combination of orchestral elements and really futuristic and modern drums. Any ideas?

Shitloads of similar ones. Tom Clancy's series like Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, later post-WWII themed Call of Duty games, Battlefield 3/4, Crysis series. Basically, every modern day shooter has that kind of soundtrack.

for better or worse, it's such a cliche thing right now because most of triple A shooters and similar genre games go for such typical modern take of EPIC orchestral pieces adding cool beats and electronic music elements. It all just started to sound the same to me and feels like they all based on some sort of template with rules that composer must follow to succeed and please the developer.

True. I can imagine this sort of music being in every modern shooter.

What I like about MGS soundtrack tho is the "sneaking" theme. While there are some "epic bangers" here and there, there is also a big variety of subtle sneaking music and the nice "80's vibe".
For example:

Similar stuff that comes to my mind. Such slow paced tunes usually are menu themes, stuff that plays at loading screen, less bombastic but still intense game moments, so on.
