Sony Computer Entertainment America booked Pyramind's (S.F.) The Vault studio (Pro Tools HD3) for three days in September to master orchestral performances recorded in Prague for the videogame Warhawk. Two weeks later, senior music supervisor Clint Bajakian and associate music supervisor Jonathan Mayer returned to Pyramind, this time with all four composers (Ron Fish, Cris Velasco, Gerard K. Marino, Mike Reagan) for the soon-to-be-released sequel to God of War. Pyramind producer Greg Gordon was asked to find exotic instrumentation to complement the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern — tinged soundtrack. Gordon brought in multi-instrumentalist Muhammad Nejad.

The two days of tracking for God of War II were done in Studio A with help from both Miik Dinko and Dave Nelson of Outpost Studios.
