Blistering.com has revealed the complete track listing for the soundtrack to the highly anticipated "Masters of Horror" series, a 13-episode anthology directed by today's most renowned horror directors. Due October 18 via Immortal Records, the specially-priced, extravagantly packaged, double disc CD will be comprised entirely of brand new and previously unreleased material from over 25 of today's top rock, metal, punk, and emo artists, including MUDVAYNE, Buckethead (ex-GUNS N' ROSES) featuring Serj Tankian of SYSTEM OF A DOWN, THURSDAY, SHADOWS FALL, ANDREW W.K., NORMA JEAN, and more. The series will debut in October on Showtime, with IDT Entertainment, Industry Entertainment and Nice Guy Productions producing. The soundtrack is available for preorder at this location and will arrive one day before release date.
"Masters of Horror" will feature 13 new one-hour horror films from acclaimed genre directors Dario Argento ("Suspiria"), John Carpenter ("Halloween"), Larry Cohen ("It's Alive"), Don Coscarelli ("Phantasm", "Bubba Ho-tep"), Joe Dante ("The Howling"), Mick Garris ("The Stand", "Riding the Bullet"), Stuart Gordon ("Re-Animator"), Tobe Hooper ("Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Poltergeist"), John Landis ("An American Werewolf in London"), William Malone ("FearDotCom", "House on Haunted Hill"), Lucky McKee ("May"), and Takashi Miike ("Audition", "Ichi The Killer").
The collaboration marks the first time these prominent directors have joined forces, so it's only fitting that a comparable roster of bands was assembled for the soundtrack. Confirmed to join the aforementioned contributing artists are RISE AGAINST, MATCHBOOK ROMANCE, FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES, ARMOR FOR SLEEP, EVERYTIME I DIE, HOPESFALL, FEAR BEFORE THE MARCH OF FLAMES, BEAR VS. SHARK, THE BRONX, IT DIES TODAY, CHOIDOS, A CHANGE OF PACE, DEATH BY STEREO, MURDER BY DEATH, SCARY KIDS SCARING KIDS, THE BLED, and YESTERDAY'S RISING. The all-star lineup boasts aggregate sales of over 15 million units. Additional bands and track listings will be announced as they are confirmed.
Says series Executive Producer Garris of the important roll music plays in the "Masters of Horror" series, "Horror is to cinema what rock n' roll is to
music: rebellious, transgressive, loud and abrasive. And the sound of horror is every bit as important as the vision. Horror can be quiet and sneak up on you, and just give you a chill. Or it can grab you by the throat and rip out your trachea. We hope to embrace the full range on the 'Masters of Horror' soundtrack."
"Masters of Horror" grew out of an informal bi-monthly dinner attended by many of the horror genre's most highly regarded directors. Garris transformed their collective desire to work together into reality, and will serve as the showrunner for the series. The series was developed by Garris along with executive producers Andrew Deane and Keith Addis, and is an IDT Entertainment production.
