Attack on Titan Season 3 Soundtrack PreviewMay 27, 2019
This season has seen a ton of new secrets revealed about the Titans themselves and the walled civilization that humanity finds itself locked in. With the scouts making a final push against the Titans to reclaim the lost walls, and to attempt to discover the secrets of Eren's dad's basement, casualties have been fast and furious these past few episodes. Eren, Armin, and Mikasa are in dire straits when faced with the combined surprise attack of the Colossal Titan, the Armored Titan, and the Beast Titan.
Erwin's final charge, the Beast Titan's defeat, Armin's sacrifice, and more moments than we can count were made that much more thanks to the musical accompaniment seen here in this soundtrack. With the third season spiraling toward its finale, we're sure to see a lot more catastrophic and monumental story beats coming down the pike, and this soundtrack works as a fantastic reminder for those wanting to re-live the emotional scenes of this season.
