The hybrid fusion of aggressive electronic music with orchestral and rock influences now get to the next level of destruction by bringing in the big guns of dubstep, wobbling bass and frequency oscillations, deadly drops and explosive noises combined with orchestral and rock flows makes this new instrumental collection murderous. “ShutEmDown” is one of the most killer tracks I heard lately and it was used in the Ghost Rider 2 movie trailer. The Latin-spiced electro “Senorita Bonita” it’s also a favorite.
“The Wings of Icarus” was used in the Real Steel movie trailer, while “Earth Scraper” was used in the Assassin’s Creed: Revelations “Combat Trailer”.
Scott Albert, known as Klayton, multi-instrumentalist and the sole member of Celldweller was a former frontman and songwriter for the bands Circle of Dust, Argyle Park and Angeldust gained a devoted cult following in the mid 90s through his industrial metal band Circle of Dust.
Bang on this!
The self-titled Celldweller debut album saw release in early 2003 and debuted at #17 on Billboard’s Internet Sales Chart.
In December 2008, Klayton released “Soundtrack for the Voices in My Head Vol. 1”, a collection consisting primarily of short, instrumental score-based compositions. The songs were culled from the hundreds of demos in Klayton’s extensive archives and represented work that he felt was not suited for a premier Celldweller album but rather for theatrical use. Celldweller’s management has sought to have these songs placed in media, like those on the debut album, and several have already been heard on film and television and in video games.
Chapter 02 of Soundtrack for the Voices in My Head Vol. 2 will be released on the 14th of February, 2012 and pre-orders of Live Upon a Blackstar will begin on the same day.
