Simply Awesome

by John (John@Beckerist.com) on 2/26/2002

Jonathon Davis at his best with 5 songs on this CD. With his Korn-esque style utilizing Vocals from bands such as Static-X, Disturbed, Linkin Park and Marilyn Manson he has produced yet another amazing piece of work. With the addition of songs from the Deftones, Papa Roach, Earshot, Dry Cell, Tricky, and Kidneythieves, it rounds out an amazing CD. I highly recommend it for all hard-core Korn fans, as it may be the last we see of them at least until the arrival of "Untouchables" set for a May 14th, 2002 release. Read More

A Must Have for Korn Fans

by Jumpy on 3/1/2002

Everything about this soundtrack is awesome except for that they got the order of the tracks incorrect on the CD info. But I can live with it, and so can everyone else. Read More

Product Overview

His thirst for life enchanted her.

His thirst for fame awoke her.

His thirst for power may kill us all.

Legendary Vampire Lestat (STUART TOWNSEND) has risen from a decades-long slumber, determined to step out into the light. No longer content with being banished to the shadows, moving among mortals who never truly see him for what he is, Lestat has reinvented himself as the closest thing to a god on Earth: a rock star.

The intoxicating lure of his music has snaked its way around the globe, ultimately finding the ear of the slumbering ancient Queen Akasha (AALIYAH) in her crypt beneath the Arctic ice. Mother of all Vampires, Akasha has been resting for centuries, waiting for the right time to rise again and seize dominion over the world. Lestatís music is the revelation she has been waiting for, and she desires that he rule beside her.

But can Akasha be stopped? Her malevolent power may be too great for even the most ancient of the immortal Vampires to combat - she created them, and their survival depends on her own.

After all, Akasha is used to getting everything she wants... and all she wants is Hell on Earth.

Album Notes and Credits
Original songs by Jonathan Davis and Richard Gibbs.
Music composed by Jonathan Davis and Richard Gibbs.
Personnel: Shankar (vocals); Jonathan Davis (guitar, keyboards); Brian Welch, James "Munky" Shaffer (guitar); Richard Gibbs (keyboards); Terry Bozzio, Vinnie Colaiuta (drums).
In Anne Rice's book QUEEN OF THE DAMNED, recurring vampire character Lestadt awakes from a lengthy hibernation and proceeds to remake himself into a rock star of global proportions who ends up attracting the unwanted attentions of head vampire Queen Akasha. Although the late Aaliyah plays the title role in the film, the accompanying soundtrack contains nary a stitch of hip-hop or R&B, instead cleaving to the hard and heavy sounds conjured up by Korn's Jonathan Davis and ex-Oingo Boingo keyboardist Richard Gibbs. Due to contractual obligations, Davis was prevented from singing these songs, therefore the quintet of cuts composed by this duo are sung by an impressive array of talent from the nu-metal world.
Marilyn Manson slithers his way through the chilling "Redeemer," Orgy's Jay Gordon haunts the ominous "Slept So Long," and Linkin Park's Chester Bennington makes his solo debut with the eerie "System." Elsewhere, Static-X's namesake Wayne Static growls through the thumping "Not Meant For Me" and Disturbed's David Draiman pours himself into the sweeping "Forsaken," featuring the Middle Eastern-flavored contributions by violinist Shankar.
