June 11 [16:00 EDT] — The “Spawn” soundtrack, which teams hard rock’s finest with their electronica counterparts, will turn up in stores next month.
The soundtrack, which teams Henry Rollins with Goldie, Slayer with Atari Teenage Riot, and Marilyn Manson with Sneaker Pimps among others, should arrive in record stores on July 29. [For more, see “Marilyn Manson Enters Studio With Sneaker Pimps As Uproar Continues” from June 4]
The set also features Filter and Crystal Method, KoRn and the Dust Brothers, and Soul Coughing and Ronnie Size, and is the musical to the big screen adaptation of Todd McFarlane’s “Spawn” comic book.
In addition to sparking a motion picture, “Spawn” (the top selling comic in the U.S.) has inspired an animated series on HBO, and a line of action figures from McFarlane Toys (who also produce a line of recently released Kiss action figures).
None too surprisingly, the hybrid-fueled soundtrack comes
from the folks at Immortal Records, who released the rock-and-rap tag team soundtrack to 1993’s “Judgment Night” (which boasted efforts from Cypress Hill with Pearl Jam and Ice-T with Slayer among others).
The latest re-working of Spawn, starring Michael Jai White, Martin Sheen, and John Leguizamo will hit theaters on August 1.
