Netflix RESIDENT EVIL Series Soundtrack Announced – Music by Gregory Reveret
Milan Records has announced a soundtrack album for the Netflix original series Resident Evil. The album features selections of the show’s original score composed by Gregory Reveret. Also included is the original song My Heart Has Teeth by deadmau5 featuring Skylar Grey.
Based on the horror franchise, the series is set in its own continuity separate from either the previous six Paul Anderson film series or the 2021 film. The story makes heavy use of flashbacks, set in both 2022 and 2036. The 2022 plotline involve 14-year-old half-twins Jade and Billie Wesker moving to New Raccoon City. They come to realize that their father may be concealing dark secrets, both that could destroy the world and reveal their true origins. The 2036 plotline takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, where Umbrella Corporation’s T-virus has spread across the world, mutating wildlife and six billion human victims, called “Zeroes,” leaving behind a mere 15 million uninfected refugees. It follows Jade, now thirty, in her efforts to survive in this world.
The series is scheduled to premiere on July 14, 2022. The soundtrack will be released digitally next Friday, July 15.
