Watch 'PRIMAL' now on Adult Swim

Primal

Primal has been receiving glowing reviews since it's release on October 7th. The show, which features no dialogue, relies strongly on it's score to portray emotion & adrenalyn.


Review form The Decider :

"That balancing act is heightened through Tyler Bates and Joanne Higginbottom’s haunting score, which effortlessly supports the emotional weight of the show. Filled with drums and ominous swelling strings, Primal’s music walks hand-in-hand with its action. It’s not uncommon for the grunts and bashes from a deadly bludgeoning to seamlessly transition into a new piece of music. But those musical ebbs and flows are what communicate the alternating pain, outrage, fear, and fleeting moments of happiness experienced by our prehistoric protagonist. They’re the only way we know what he’s thinking, and yet they’re shockingly effective. Through its music Primal always tells us the grand emotional swatches of what we should be feeling. Yet much like the series’ animation, its lack of dialogue leaves every moment open to more nuanced interpretation."

'Setting Sun' Available Now


The Dark Nights: Metal soundtrack is turning out to be one interesting project, with yet another hard rock hero having his contribution revealed. Alice in Chains guitarist and co-vocalist Jerry Cantrell heads up the song 'Setting Sun'.


Cantrell's contribution to the project is the sixth offering so far. Mastodon's Brann Dailor kicked things off with his song 'Red Death'. That was followed by Deftones' frontman Chino Moreno leading the track 'Brief Exchange'. Sleigh Bells vocalist Alexis Krauss then fronted the song 'War Cry', while the most recent offerings have been 'Fact Check' led by The Fever 333's Jason Aalon Butler and 'The Calling' featuring In This Moment's Maria Brink and Chris Howorth. Each of the songs have been aided along by acclaimed producer Mike Elizondo and Marilyn Manson's guitarist and composer Tyler Bates.


All of the songs are tied to the Dark Nights: Metal Deluxe Edition, which is based around a six-part graphic novel created by writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo as part of the DC Universe. Dark Nights: Metal Deluxe Edition is currently available at comic book retailers and digital outlets


'Cry Little Sister' is one of 2018's Best Rock Songs


2018 has hit its mid-point and in the first six months of the year some of rock's biggest acts have added to their impressive catalogs ...


Nobody does dark and spooky quite like Marilyn Manson and the singer hits the exact right mood with his cover of the Gerard McMann song 'Cry Little Sister.' Many fans will remember the original from the 1987 vampire film The Lost Boys and Manson stays fairly faithful to the original, letting his seductive delivery, raging angst, and a backing choir deliver an eerie vibe. Manson's right-hand man Tyler Bates infuses the track with more industrial production, which allows this new version to differentiate itself from the original.


'Fact Check' Available Now


You can add The Fever 333's Jason Aalon Butler to the increasingly interesting Dark Nights: Metal deluxe edition soundtrack. It was revealed last year that DC would pair up music with their Dark Nights: Metal graphic novel and in recent months we've seen Mastodon's Brann Dailor and Deftones' Chino Moreno's contributions come to light. Now Butler follows with a new song called 'Fact Check.'


Tyler Bates, who is overseeing the music for the project along with producer Mike Elizondo, says, "We are beyond excited to have Jason be a part of this project. We knew his high energy and punk rock aesthetic would be a perfect fit for the Dark Nights: Metal music we wanted to make. Jason took it over the top!”


Butler also spoke about the unique collaboration declaring, “There is a reason why Tyler is where he is in his career and his artistry. He was one of the most enthusiastic, risk-taking, boundary pushers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He reminded me that you don’t win by playing by the rules, you win by making your own. I got all the time in the world for Tyler Bates. He's a real one."


'Brief Exchange' & 'War Cry' Available Now

Dark Nights Metal

Deftones' Chino Moreno and Sleigh Bells' Alexis Krauss have released new solo singles, 'Brief Exchange' and 'War Cry' respectively, which were inspired by DC Entertainment’s new graphic novel, Dark Nights: Metal.


'Brief Exchange' warps Moreno’s signature scream in waves of ghostly reverb, metal riffs, and pummeling percussion whilst 'War Cry' seems perfectly suited for a climactic comic book battle as Krauss wails, “We will turn the dark to light / With the sound of our cry / With the light / We will fight.”


Dillinger Escape Plan’s Gil Sharone features on drums, while Mike Elizondo takes on bass and Tyler Bates plays guitar. Bates, who also produced alongside Elizondo, is familiar with writing for comic-inspired characters thanks to his compositional contributions in Deadpool 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Volumes 1 & 2.


Check out the songs below:

“Red Death” features Bates on guitar with Elizondo on bass and Gil Sharone from Dillinger Escape Plan, Puscifer behind the drum kit. Its dark lyrics remain befitting of the graphic novel’s themes. “Red Death” showcases yet another facet of one of rock music’s most prolific forces.
