Warner Bros. Records & DC Comics To Collaborate On “Dark Nights: Metal” Soundtrack
Oct 8, 2017
Last weekend at the New York Comic Con, DC Entertainment announced an upcoming collaboration with Warner Bros. Records to produce a 6-track EP featuring songs inspired by DARK NIGHTS: METAL, the blockbuster comic book reuniting the best-selling BATMAN talent team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo.
“As both a musician and fan of heavy metal music, having a soundtrack for DARK NIGHTS: METAL is pretty awesome,” the announcement quoted Capullo. “I really like the concept of having hard-driving, heavy music as a complement to the incredible story that Scott and I are telling.”
Production of the soundtrack will be guided by two of the recording industry’s brightest stars: Composer Tyler Bates – who has produced and composed music for video games, television and movies, including Watchmen, 300 and Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and 2, and who is also Marilyn Manson’s lead guitarist; and Warner Bros. Records Senior VP of A&R Mike Elizondo, who has worked with some of the most prolific artists in hip-hop and will co-produce the soundtrack with Bates. Elizondo,
“I’m really honored by this,” said writer Scott Snyder. “So many of the Batman stories that Greg and I have worked on together have been fueled or influenced by music that inspired us; this story in particular has rock and metal music as the engine driving it all. To have something like this come together is a huge thrill.”
