Contributions by Drowning Pool, Queens of the Stone Age and Damageplan are among the 19 new tracks slated for the soundtrack to the comic-book flick "The Punisher."
"Step Up," the first new song from Drowning Pool in nearly two years, will serve as the album's first single, according to a Wind-Up Records spokesperson.
That's not the only place where new Drowning Pool singer Jason Jones can be heard on the album. Jones, who replaced the late Dave Williams in January (see "Drowning Pool Hire L.A. Tattoo Artist As New Singer"), also lends a hand on "The End Has Come," the first offering from former Evanescence guitarist Ben Moody since he left the band in October (see "Ben Moody Bringing Kelly Clarkson's Music To Life").
Moody's former partner Amy Lee also appears on the soundtrack, as featured vocalist on Seether's "Broken." Lee and her boyfriend, Seether singer Shaun Morgan, wrote the song last year.
The soundtrack's other collaboration comes courtesy of Damageplan's "Ashes to Ashes," which features Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell (see "Jerry Cantrell To Jam With Alice In Chains Bandmates").
"The Punisher" hit screens April 19, while the soundtrack is due March 23.
