Last week we featured the epic double-disc album release of the Dead Rising 3 game soundtrack, hands-down one of the coolest soundtrack albums of 2013, game-related or otherwise (get the full breakdown in our review). One of that album's strengths comes from its far-reaching assortment of musical styles, tones and moods, many provided by a roster of talented guest musicians across multiple genres. One such artist is perennial FEARnet fave Celldweller, whose heavy cyber-rock has enhanced countless genre-leaning games, trailers, movies and TV episodes since their formation a decade ago.
Celldweller founder Klayton recorded three original cues for the game (following his similar contributions to Dead Rising 2, including the theme song “Kill the Sound”), and starting this week he's offering the tracks “Gluttony Battle,” “Sloth Battle” and “Hemlock Drone Attack” as the standalone EP Zombie Killer, via his own record label FiXT Music.
You can purchase the EP from the FiXT web store, and stream the whole thing at Celldweller's Soundcloud. But first take a listen to my fave Celldweller track from Dead Rising 3, “Hemlock Drone Attack”:
