The official television soundtrack for Metal Hurlant Chronicles, which is composed by Jesper Kyd (Assassin’s Creed, Borderlands, Hitman), will be released digitally on February 25th via Sumthing Else Music Works. The show is currently airing in 22 countries throughout Europe and stars Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner), James Marsters (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Joe Flanigan (Stargate Atlantis), Michael Jai White (Spawn), Darren Shahlavi (Arrow), Scott Adkins (Zero Dark Thirty), and Kelly Brook (Smallville).
Kyd states, “I really enjoy working on multiple genres and Métal Hurlant provides a unique creative opportunity to score every episode with its own sound. Since each story takes place in a different time (future/past) and on different worlds, the music style is always different from episode to episode. The element that ties them together is the science-fiction/fantasy genre which is present in all the episodes.”
Metal Hurlant is based off the wildly popular magazine ‘Heavy Metal’, which saw two animated films (one in 1981 and one in 2000).
