Death Race Soundtrack

death race soundtrack (music score) - listen
So here’s the Death Race soundtrack. You may know Paul W.S. Anderson (or PWSA as the texting kids call him) as head teacher at the Uwe Boll school of video-games-to-cinema-slaughter. His most recent effort isn’t necessarily a video game, (although I’m sure they made one and it’s sitting in the bargain bins of your local gaming store right now) it’s more of a very loose remake of 1975’s Death Race 2000. I say very loose in the fact that the only similarity between the two films is that they both feature a race, and there’s probably some death involved as well.

The music itself though, is not a rehash. The Death Race score was composed by ex Tangerine Dreamer, Paul Haslinger, whose body of work as a composer seems to follow a specific genre trend: Mostly teen demographic popcorners (yeah, I just made that word up), and a few video game titles.

Also check out: Batman 3 Villains

What Paul Haslinger pulls out for this film is a blend of hypnotic, hard driving industrial elements along with classic orchestral arrangements that really work well with the films saturated color mood. In fact, I really like the drab, droning menace that this score provides. A lot of great open string guitars and industrial pipe clanging that make me pray that they don’t bury this score under the usual action sound effect soundtrack. Usually with directors like this, a lot of the score gets stifled in the mix. Let it breathe Paul… Let it breathe. It’s OK to sometimes let the music speak instead of the actors.

I like to think that any film, good or bad, can be made better with a prominent and interesting soundtrack, and Paul Haslinger’s work, for me, has made this film better.

    I can’t be held responsible!
    The music was good but I can’t condone the film.
    I’m a big fan of the original and this to me, is an abomination.

    These “re-imaginings” will not stop until all of us are dead… or until we stop paying to go see them.

    Whichever comes first.
