Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR), Lzzy Hale (HALESTORM), Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), Dave Lombardo (SLAYER, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES) and Tina Guo have joined forces with composer Fil Eisler on the new track “Thunder Force” — lead single from the original soundtrack to the upcoming Netflix comedy-action film of the same name.
The movie, which comes out on April 9, is written and directed by Ben Falcone (The Boss, Tammy) and stars Melissa McCarthy, Octavia Spencer, Pom Klementieff, Melissa Leo and Tyrel Jackson Williams. The comedy is set in a world overrun with super-villains and follows two childhood friends who reunite to battle the Miscreants that threaten to destroy Chicago. Falcone and McCarthy also produced the project with Marc Platt (La La Land, Bridge Of Spies, Drive).
Lombardo comments: “I have had the privilege of working in the music industry for over 35 years. There is something incredibly exhilarating about performing on stage, specifically the edge that comes with the off the rails style of music I play. Working with Fil Eisler on ‘Thunder Force’ somehow captured that same feeling. This score is a powerful musical engine. It was a pleasure to be a part of the team that helped this come to life.”
