Get out the guyliner! The “Underworld Awakening” soundtrack is here and its giving new life to a bunch of bands we didn’t know people still listened to…remix style!
Taking a trip back to your brother’s awful collection of CDs during the 1990s, alterna-music player Renholdër (aka Danny Lohner) — who has worked with Trent Reznor and dudes from Korn, Limp Bizkit and Blink-182 — has twiddled the knobs on a bunch of tunes. Evanescence, Linkin Park, The Cure, Ministry and The Naked And Famous all get reworked by Lohner on the soundtrack that seems to favor tweaked out versions of alterna-jamz. The most potentially “interesting” track will likely be Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman‘s redo of Lacuna Coil‘s “Trip The Darkness.” We mostly just hope he drops a ridonkulous solo over the whole thing. As for the rest of the soundtrack, it’s a bunch of alterna-stuff we never heard of but will probably sound rockin’ pasted over scenes of Kate Beckinsale sliding around shooting guns or whatever she does in these movies.
The soundtrack will hit on January 17, 2012, three days before the movie arrives on January 20, 2012. Tracklist below.
