overall this cd was very good, it had several remixes that we’re done well that added more to the actual song. the new atreyu song was ok, they’ve done better for i think they just didnt plan this song well enough. trivium’s song is bonus and simply awesome. it you like metal/industrial this cd is great, but if not i wouldnt recommend it.

This cd was great!I really enjoyed it.Most of the songs were perfect…and if not perfect they were very close.My favorite would have to be Undertaker(Renholder Remix) by Pusifer.
PS-Does anyone know which song played in the movie trailers?I really liked that one too.
The previous reviewer seems to have missed the fact that metal and horror have long gone together. If this person knew anything about the history of metal, they would realize that the themes covered in this movie are the same as those handled by many heavy metal acts. True, a lot of this record is commercial; however, to claim that a band like Cradle of Filth is talentless only highlights this reviewers lack of understanding off heavy music. COF plays extremely complex music that draws from a wide range of musical genres. Also, they are extremely gothic in nature and deal with themes that are commonly explored in horror movies. In fact, they are far more gothic than anything that has come out of Hollywood in decades. Furthermore, the song is a cover of a Misfits song, and you certainly cannot claim that the Misfits have no connection to horror.
Perhaps, the reviewer needs to realize that not all fans of heavy metal are 15. There are a lot of us who have been into the music for decades and are very knowledgable about it. True, some of the artists on this cd will appeal to the kids; however, the movies primary audience (even though it is R rated will likely be young).
Horror and Heavy Metal have been married for decades. Since they are two of my great loves in this life, I couldn’t be happier about this.
The cd is decent. The COF and Lacuna Coil songs stand out the most.
Man, I thought they couldn’t top themselves after the killer soundtrack to the first Underworld a couple years ago. But, daymn, did they pull it off again!
The premiere solo track from Linkin’s Chester, first new Maynard track in 2 years, My Chemical Romance remix by Danny from Nine Inch Nails and Wes from Limp…the list just goes on and on! In fact, every song I hear is exclusive to this record. Kudos to the producers and all the artists that stepped up and recorded some of their best ‘ish for Underworld:evolution!
Actually I rate this a 4.5, but no choices for half stars. Anyways, this is an overall nice cd with some pretty good melodies/riffs/singing that I love to listen to again and again. I really like about half the songs, but the other half are pretty mediocre (they kinda sound the same to me). My absolute favos are Lacuna Coil’s Our Truth (one of the main reasons I bought this cd), Chester Bennington’s Morning After, Slipknot’s Vermillion pt.2, and Atreyu’s Her Portrait in Black. My least favo is Mendozza’s Eternal Battle. And I prefer MCR’s original version of To the End to this remixed version. I think this soundtrack is as good and maybe even better than the first Underworld soundtrack.
