  • This soundtrack is “Music Inspired by the Original Motion Picture,” which means some of the songs won’t be heard in the movie but were added on to help the sales of this soundtrack.

    With that being said, this is a decent enough soundtrack, driven by moody songs from some of rock’s moodiest bands.  Each song is eerie, transitioning between mellow to pounding, the kind of music for a rainy day of burying bodies.

    The album begins with “Vermilion”, a sinister track from Slipknot’s new album, followed by a forgettable song, “Just a Little”, from The Used.

    The Cure provides “Us or Them” one of the few downright angry and driving songs on the album, which is odd coming from the band who invented gloomy.  Lacuna Coil’s “Swamped” and a remix of “The Outsider” from A Perfect Circle drag on too long without ever getting anywhere.

    Killswitch Engage offer a straightforward, “The End of Heartache”, just a good rock song.  Germany’s own Rammstein chime in with “Mein Teil” a strange song with a catchy sing-a-long chorus.

    Devildriver contribute "Digging up the Corpses”.  Cradle of Filth invited guest vocalist Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull on the orchestrated “Nymphetamine”.    “Escape from Hellview” by CKY may be the exception to the gloom theme on the disc.  It would probably fit better in a skateboarding video game.

    The Deftones cover Duran Duran with “The Chauffeur.”  It is a killer, mellower track that can also be found on The Duran Duran Tribute Album.

    “Join Me in Death” by HIM is the power ballad of the album, complete with repetitive, yet reflective, piano.  Demon Hunter’s “My Heartstrings Come Undone” is a decent, middle of the road modern rock track.  Thrice add some thrashing guitars and emo vocals with “Under a Killing Moon.”

    Cold provide the loan acoustic number, “End of the World.”  Alice in Chains did the acoustic thing better.  Rob Zombie offers a remix of “Girl on Fire”, this version is better than the original, but sounds too much like “More Human than Human.”  And the soundtrack ends with the electronic, Radioheadish, “Future Proof” by Massive Attack.

    This soundtrack will probably only be notable for people who want to hear the Deftones cover Duran Duran but don’t want to shell out the cash for a Duran Duran tribute album.  Decent bands but they have all done better songs on different albums.
