Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR), Lzzy Hale (HALESTORM), Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), Dave Lombardo (SLAYER, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES) and Tina Guo have teamed up with composer Fil Eisler on the new track “Thunder Force” — lead single from the original soundtrack to the upcoming Netflix comedy-action film of the same name.
Due on April 9, the movie is written and directed by Ben Falcone (“The Boss”, “Tammy”) and stars Melissa McCarthy, Octavia Spencer, Pom Klementieff, Melissa Leo and Tyrel Jackson Williams. The comedy is set in a world overrun with super-villains and follows two childhood friends who reunite to battle the Miscreants that threaten to destroy Chicago. Falcone and McCarthy also produced the project with Marc Platt (“La La Land”, “Bridge Of Spies”, “Drive”).
“I have had the privilege of working in the music industry for over 35 years,” says Lombardo. “There is something incredibly exhilarating about performing on stage, specifically the edge that comes with the off the rails style of music I play. Working with Fil Eisler on ‘Thunder Force’ somehow captured that same feeling. This score is a powerful musical engine. It was a pleasure to be a part of the team that helped this come to life.”
Composer Fil Eisler (“Empire”, “Revenge”, “How To Be Single”, “CHiPs”, “UnReal”, “The Titan”), who helmed the “Thunder Force” score, tweeted earlier in the month: “On Apr 9th, #netflix releases #ThunderForce I have the pleasure of not only scoring the movie but having two of my childhood heroes @Scott_Ian and @TheDaveLombardo play on the score.”
Here is the “Thunder Force” plot via Netflix‘s official synopsis: “In a world terrorized by super-villains, one woman has developed the process to give superpowers to regular people. But when scientist Emily Stanton accidentally imbues her estranged best-friend with incredible abilities, the two women must become the first superhero team. Now, it is up to Thunder Force to battle the super-powered Miscreants and save Chicago from the clutches of The King.”
