Comic book legend Stan Lee’s Youtube channel World of Heroes has just launched a new series called Cosplay Piano where they mash together music themes you may recognize from movies and television with a bit of cosplay. First up is the theme from AMC’s The Walking Dead, covered by the intensely talented pianist Sonya Belosouva, and a bit of Violin play by a zombiefied Eriko Tsuji before she gets tragically shot down.
I’m not sure if I’m more in awe of Belosouva’s talent with the piano or her remarkable ability to keep cool while surrounded by the undead. Check it out. READ MORE
With the June 8th release of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus fast approaching, we thought we’d take a look back at the original Alien franchise with which it “shares strands of DNA.” Whether or not there are xenomorphs as we know them in Prometheus, it’s abundantly clear that it takes place in the same universe.
In the weeks leading up to the release of that film I’m going to revisit the four films in the Alien franchise (sorry, not going to subject myself to AVP) in order to gather my thoughts in anticipation of the new outing. Last week I revisited Alien: Resurrection and absolutely hated it. The week before that I revisited Alien 3 and discovered a lot to like.
Now we come down to the two titans in the series, and this week I’m taking another look at Aliens. This is one of my favorite movies and I bet it’s one of yours as well. But what makes it tick? And is it better than Alien?
In less than a week season 2 of The Walking Dead comes to an end. So, to build up the anticipation (what’s gonna happen next???), I’ve got a pretty badass metal cover of the theme, which is composed by Bear McCreary (interview here). McCreary himself gave this cover a thumbs up via Twitter, saying, “Horns high, dude. Horns high.”
Now that Dead Island is less than a month away I’m about to burst. Seriously, I’m going to burst and cover these walls with little Adam giblets. So while I’m trying to contain myself you should definitely check out these songs, because they’re pretty easy on the ears, kind of like how easy I am on the eyes. And the bosom. And the [CENSORED]. The song below is the main theme song, and I’m definitely a fan. I wouldn’t mind slaying zombies with a few friends while this played in the background. Would you?
The other two songs, “Surrounded By Zombies” and “Zombie Uprising” can be found after the jump. Just make sure your ears are limbered up first, they’re pretty thick. READ MORE
There is no doubt that the Dead Island trailer was bone chilling and spine shivering, but we all know without that hauntingly calm score in the background the trailer wouldn’t have had such a huge impact. Well, the demand for that song was so huge that they decided to release it on iTunes for 99cents.
The song was Produced by Savalas, the “Dead Island Trailer Theme” by Giles Lamb (featuring Mairi Campbell, Peter Nicholson & Guido De Groot). Whatever all that mumbo jumbo means. If you would like to download the song, and who wouldn’t, you can get it right HERE!READ MORE
