Metal Soundtracks for Friday the 13th…

Alice? What's the matter?

Over at the Metal Hammer blog, writer and podcaster extraordinaire Merlin Alderslade presents a list of top quality metal soundtracks to listen to on this most numerically challenging of Fridays.

I will, of course, concur with his choice of the excellent soundtrack to the first Resident Evil film (the first place that I heard Slipknot, fact fans) which features a selection of Marilyn Manson‘s score cues, Rammstein, The Crystal Method and improbably-barnetted nu-metallists Static-X.   Happy days.

Horror and Metal, after all, go together like fine Italian coffee and a deliciously crunchy piece of biscotti – perfect bedfellows that it would be foolish to try and separate.

If I had to choose one thing to listen to on this particular Friday which perfectly marries these two socially unacceptable and outcast genres, then I’m going back to the Eighties for a slice of glorious, retro hard rock from Dokken and their theme for the third “Nightmare on Elm Street” movie, ‘Dream Warriors’

And, yes – Don Dokken’s fluffy 80’s hair is by far the most terrifying thing in the video…

  1. I’m not to big into movie soundtracks that aren’t scores, but sometimes a few good compilations come through, and ya, for metal, horror movies have that market cornered well.
    One really good compilation soundtrack to check out is the Tales From the Crypt: Demon Knight one. It’s got Pantera, Megadeth, Helmet, etc.
    The Heavy Metal soundtracks are great too, both the original and the 2K one (which has a great Pantera Bside on it)

    • Thanks for the recommendations – I shall be off to Amazon to check out those and find myself a copy of the “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey” CD whilst I’m at it.
