Well, ever since my ears got opened to a whole new world of tunes, especially Power/Progressive Metal. I have a list of bands that i would love to hear in a horror film. Besides, metal and horror go hand in hand:

Riverside
Crimson Glory
Morgana Lefay
Coroner
Vio-lence
Kreator
Testament
Megadeth ("Scream For Your Life", definitely)
Black Majesty
Iced Earth
Mystic Prophecy
Sirenia
Paradise Lost

Honorable Mentions:

Tad Morose - although this band is still on the new side, something about them is horror-friendly. I can totally hear them at the closing credits of a good flick. (i.e. "Servant of the Bones," "Nuclear Skies," "Anubis.")

Annihilator - this band cranks, and they have a cool sound to them. Metal and horror.

Evergrey - Although some of their stuff is melodic, they know how to make songs that could be movies themselves. (i.e. "In Search of Truth")

Good list KK!

I love horror and am a big fan of metal, but surprisingly I'm not a big fan of the two mixed together. I just can't think of a film that utilized the mix well. Maybe Argento's Phenomena? Do you have any good examples?

How about Return of the Living Dead? Although it was really punk, it stands as one of the best punk albums, and it really put a new spotlight on one of my favorite punk groups, TSOL (True Sounds of Liberty) The other movie that they have to their credit is Liquid Sky. Another movie that it worked in was Lamberto Bava's "Demons". If I remember correctly that soundtrack featured a lot of metal, including Accept, and Rick Springfield.

Hey KK,

I've been meaning to post and give you the update - The Lasik went great and my vision is now 20/15. It was a different experience than I was expecting, but I had a rather high stigmatism in both eyes too. Almost at that month date now though, so I will be able to rub my eyes again soon! Woo-hoo!

At any rate, yeah I would say ROTLD was definitely punk, albeit fairly hard edge punk, but I completely agree - it worked well. Ironically, Spinning Grave and I were just talking over the phone about the use of heavy metal in Phenomena and how much we missed Goblin. I guess with the satire slant of ROTLD, I find the music as something of a "FU! Its a movie!" tongue-in-cheek move for the filmmakers that complimented the attitude well.

A lot of recent flicks (particularly the Friday the 13th sequels) take the metal soundtrack, but it just doesn't mesh. Then again, over on the movie board, we've been talking about a few films that are generally effective because they have either no soundtrack of a very limited soundtrack. I guess that is the direction I am leaning right now, since so much these days defines excess already.

Nice list, indeed. Iced Earth would be great.

I'm going serious 80's throwback:

- Babylon AD
- Whitesnake
- Great White



I can only imagine the zombie/demon killing sprees that would ensue during these bands... Laughing

It could be an utter bloodbath. Might be the type of music that might want to make one strap a lawnmower on their chest and go to town. Smile I havent heard Babylon AD, but i will have to check them out. I think that for it to work it has to be loud, fast, and able to increase the tempo of the movie. I'm going to try muting the television and popping in Dawn of the Dead with a soundtrack of Whitesnake and see what happens.

Correction: The song "Scream For Your Life" that i mentioned by Megadeth was actually not a Megadeth song,(Guess the Napster file was named wrong)it was actually a song called "My Favorite Nightmare" by another group that i would love to hear in a horror movie - Metal Church. Smile

Hell yeah! Bang Go The Bells..

I'm reminded of the soundtrack to Demons. Motley's "Save Our Souls" kicked ass in that movie.
