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.
