WORLD WAR Z Vinyl Soundtrack by Marco Beltrami
Warner Music release of composer Marco Beltrami’s original music score to the 2013 zombie film World War Z.
Release Date: July 16, 2013.
World War Z follows United Nations employee Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) as he traverses the world in a race against time to stop a pandemic that is toppling armies and governments and threatening to decimate humanity itself.
The score, composed by Marco Beltrami with additional music by Marcuss Trumpp, was recorded with two ensembles, a full orchestra in Abbey Road and a smaller group at British Grove studios – both in London.
Music is conducted by Matt Dunkley.
Beltrami delivers an impressive soundtrack that blends both the style of an epic disaster movie and the tone of a zombie horror film to deliver one of his most beautiful, dark, and at times intense film scores.
