DC is helping fans fully immerse themselves in their crazy stories with an official soundtrack. They have just announced a new Dark Nights: Metal soundtrack EP, which will be composed of six tracks in confluence with Warner Bros. Records. It will serve as a quintessential compliment to the Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo series. Dark Nights: Metal is a summer 2017 crossover event for DC Comics, continuing the narrative of the DC rebirth saga.
“As both a musician and fan of heavy metal music, having a soundtrack for Dark Nights: Metal is pretty awesome,” Capullo said. “I really like the concept of having hard-driving, heavy music as a complement to the incredible story that Scott and I are telling.”
The album will feature production work from Tyler Bates and Mike Elizondo. Bates has worked on movies like Watchmen, 300, and Guardians of the Galaxy when he’s not playing guitar for Marilyn Manson. Elizondo, on the other hand, Senior Vice President of A&R at Warner Bros. Records, has worked with a multitude of musicians ranging from Dr. Dre, Eminem, Twenty One Pilots to Muse and Avenged Sevenfold.
“I’m really honored by this,” Snyder said. “So many of the Batman stories that Greg and I have worked on together have been fueled or influenced by music that inspired us; this story in particular has rock and metal music as the engine driving it all. To have something like this come together is a huge thrill.”
There is no release date for the soundtrack yet.
