Zangeki no Reginleiv is a new action game that was released for Wii in Japan this week. I happened to listen to this track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSokjWYSl-k

It sounded so much like Soul Calibur / Soul Calibur 2 that I was sure it would be by Junichi Nakatsuru or some other Soul Calibur composer, but apparently it's by Masafumi Takada! He's probably best known for No More Heroes and Killer 7, and this is quite a change of style from those.

There was a Limited Soundtrack released with the game in Japan: http://vgmdb.net/album/17216 and I guess that's where these YouTube clips are from.

There's no tracklist there yet so I don't know if it's just a sampler. This YouTube page at least has a few more samples: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8RoO0HvTw8

Sounds pretty good to me, there's no translation announced for the game yet and I don't know it it's any good but it could be worth watching out for the music.

Thanks for the heads up Sami!  I remember hearing about Takada composing this game a while back but had since forgotten about it.  Come to think of it, I'm pretty he's done the music for all of Sandlot's games.

Here's a music rip courtesy of yours truly.  I was able to find 19 tracks, luckily they were clearly labeled on the disc, 17 BGMs and 2 jingles, everything else was just sound effects, dialogue, and cutscene audio.

I kinda like it so far.  It's definitely not what comes to mind when I think of Takada, but since he's not employed at Grasshopper anymore I guess it's cool by me for him to change up his style every now and then.  The mbgm_03Honou track gives off such a Shadow of the Colossus vibe, it's awesome!  If they do release an official soundtrack, I'd buy it.  Let's hope that promo CD isn't the only "release" this soundtrack sees though, I hate when that happens cause these pack-ins are a pain in the ass to come by without having to buy the whole game.
