July 14 [12:00 EDT] -- Orbital's collaboration with Metallica's Kirk Hammett will be the track played over the opening credits of the movie Spawn, reports Britain's New Musical Express.
Hammett and the band have been re-working their song "Satan" for the Spawn soundtrack, which features a number of odd combos like Goldie and Henry Rollins, Marilyn Manson and the Sneaker Pimps, and the Prodigy and Rage Against the Machine. An Orbital spokesperson told the magazine, "It's very different to the original 'Satan'. There's much bigger drums and real heavy metal guitar, without the solos being too Deep Purple."
On the opposite end of the scale, Orbital has also been signed as a contributor to another film, "Event Horizon," this time paired with a symphony orchestra. The movie, a multi-million dollar sci-fi horror film directed by Mortal Kombat Director Paul Anderson and starring Sam Neill, opens in the U.K. Sept. 5.
