MARILYN MANSON, MUDVAYNE and BLOODSIMPLE are among the artists contributing to the upcoming "Saw II" soundtrack, due on October 25 via Treadstone Records.

Commented Treadstone Records president Jonathan Platt: "We were looking for tracks with an edge-of-your-seat intensity to reflect the mood of 'Saw II'. But we didn't want to rely on aggressive vocals and volume. We didn't want to make a heavy metal record, which would have been the obvious choice."

Treadstone principal Jonathan Scott Miller elaborated: "We wanted the 'Saw II' soundtrack to blend seamlessly with Charlie Clouser's score. So we chose music with elements of both organic hard rock and electronic industrial, which creates an atmosphere you can really feel. These songs get under your skin."

MUDVAYNE's epic "Forget to Remember" was one of the first songs earmarked for the soundtrack. It can also be heard during the initial end titles of "Saw II". "Forget to Remember" is the second single off MUDVAYNE's current gold-certified album "Lost and Found". The video for the song was shot in early September by "Saw II" director Darren Lynn Bousman. Said Platt: "We worked closely with the film's producers on putting the soundtrack together, and then we collaborated with them on the video, right down to recreating pivotal sets from the movie. The guys in MUDVAYNE are fans of the first 'Saw', and they were very enthusiastic about tying 'Forget to Remember' in with 'Saw II'."

"There is no question about how lucky we are to have all these artists on one CD," commented "Saw II" director Darren Lynn Bousman. "To have talents like MUDVAYNE and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE — both amazing bands, and both bands I've listened to for years — featured on this soundtrack is a thrill."

Noted Jonnie Forster, partner in Kryptonite Marketing, which is handling marketing of the "Saw II" soundtrack: "We are re-servicing the single, MUDVAYNE's 'Forget to Remember', in late September. All divisions of Epic Records [MUDVAYNE's label] are working with us to deliver across-the-board promotions in radio, video, online and live events. October will be 'Saw II Month', for sure."
