Milan Records have released the title track and lead single from Netflix’s upcoming superhero comedy Thunder Force. ‘Thunder Force’ was written by composer Fil Eisler for the film alongside Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Corey Taylor (Slipknot & Stone Sour) and features a star-studded line-up of metal legends Lzzy Hale (Halestrom), Dave Lombardo (Slayer) as well as dynamic electric cellist Tina Guo. The track features as the end credits song to the new action comedy from writer / director Ben Falcone and starring Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer, which premieres on Netflix Friday, April 9. It features as the lead single to the film’s original soundtrack by composer Fil Eisler, which will be released by Milan Records in conjunction with the film’s debut next Friday, April 9.
Of the track, composer Fil Eisler says:
“One of the great things about scoring movies is that I get to play in a lot of different musical sandboxes and occasionally the opportunity comes up to invite in some special guests. Anthrax and Slayer played a huge part in my childhood and I’ve been a fan of both Corey [Taylor] and Lzzy [Hale] for years, so when the idea of doing an orchestral metal score came up, it was a perfect excuse to go straight to the source. Why fake it when you can work with the real originals! It was honestly one of the most outright fun experiences of my scoring career so far.”
