Scott Ian, Dave Lombardo and Fil Eisler (‘Thunder Force’ Soundtrack) on The MetalSucks Podcast #385
This week we bring Hollywood and thrash metal icons together on one episode to celebrate the soundtrack of the new film Thunder Force! Composer Fil Eisler tells us why he felt he needed to pitch adding Scott Ian and Dave Lombardo to the Melissa McCarthy-led Netflix film, how avant garde techniques can be brought to scoring film that wouldn’t work in traditional songwriting, how they got Corey Taylor and Lzzy Hale involved to write a theme song, which film soundtrack he would like to do a heavy metal remake of with Scott and Dave, and updates on both the new Motor Sister and Dead Cross records.
Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn have their yearly debate about the new petition for Metallica to play the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and they discuss Lucas Mann and Rings of Saturn being dropped by their label for alleged threats.
Thank you to our sponsor, Metal Blade Records, for their continued support!
Songs: Corey Taylor, Lzzy Hale, Scott Ian, Dave Lombardo, Fil Eisler, and Tina Guo – “Thunder Force Theme Song,” Mr. Bungle – “Bungle Grind” (Live), and Tommy’s Rock Trip – “Got To Play Some Rock N Roll”
