Lollipop Chainsaw Music - Behind the Scenes Trailer

What is the exact soundtrack to a zombie massacre? In scoring the upcoming game Lollipop Chainsaw, artist Jimmy Urine (of Mindless Self Indulgence) and Grasshopper Manufacture Sound Director Akira Yamaoka had to address these types of questions. When Juliet rips through a decaying zombie torso with her trusty chainsaw, would Sleigh Bells fit better than Sinatra? Or should it be an original composition? In this behind the scenes video, Jimmy and Akira discuss the various influences that go into scoring a game with such a strong visual and creative style and the aesthetic basis from which the soundtrack was compiled.
 On top of the original music composed by Jimmy and Akira, there is a plethora of music licensed for the game as well. The full tracklist:

Available on June 12th, Lollipop Chainsaw is the ‘un-deadly' story of sweet and killer zombie-hunter Juliet Starling and her quest to uncover the root of a colossal zombie outbreak.

The game will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
