Although theres a lot of mediocre tracks on the Freddy VS Jason Soundtarck theres also a lot of amazing tracks which by far earn this album 5 stars if your into metal. The album kicks off with the fairly decent Ill Nino track 'How can I live' which I'd think much higher of if it hadn't been played to death on Tv, still, it's definatley worth 4/5. This is followed by Killswitch and 'When Darkness falls', it's not a bad track but it's not great either, however, this is only the beginning, what follows are 5 of the albums best, these kick off with SpineShank's brilliant 'Begining of the end' followed by the superb Mushroomhead, Hatebreed, Slipknot outings and the stunnung, breathtaking, aggression fuelled 'Army of me' by the new gods of thrash metal that are Chimaira, this track alone earns the album five stars. The next lot of tracks are nothing special and include the dreadful murderdolls track 'Welcome to the strange', however, this soon changes when the album reaches Stone Sour, unfortunatley the Sepultura track here really isn't anything special, they could have come up with something much better than this, very mediocre. Now we come to track 18, In Flames 'Trigger'-I don't even know how to describe this song, let me just tell you this, after the first time I heard it I had chills, this is truly one of the greatest songs I have ever heard, the power, the emotion, everything is perfect, even if this was a whole album of murderdolls songs and this was on it I would still give it 5 stars, Trigger is perfection in music. Overall, a good album with some truly amazing metal songs on it, definatley worth a buy, if not just for Chimaira and In Flames.
this soundtrack is just mind blowing,as theres plenty of excellent metalcore and heavy metal bands on it,and thats why i bought it,as im into all kinds of death metal/deathcore bands myself,and i like horror soundtracks that have various music bands on them like resident evil 1-3,and this soundtrack is just excellent.
I got this album only being aware of the first track on the album, Ill Nino-How Can I Live. It was the track that played over the ending credits of the movie and I knew right there and then that I had to get this album. I just didn't expect so many quality metal songs on one great soundtrack to one of the best movies of the year! You've got everything you could possibly need on here, previously unreleased mindblowing tracks by some of todays most important names in rock, Slipknot, Stone Sour, Killswitch Engage, Sevendust, etc. The list goes on! If you're a fan of either Freddy Krugeur, Jason Voorhees, or just great rock music, get this album, you won't be disappointed!
For once there’s a movie soundtrack that I can listen to without skipping tracks non-stop to get to the good songs. No, this is not the movie score (such a version does exist), but this is a compilation of hard-hitting metal songs that appeared in the movie. “Freddy vs. Jason: The Soundtrack” is an amazing collection of heavy songs that are bound to give just about anyone road rage. What kind of metal is there? Well, you sure as hell won’t find Limp Bizkit or any other bands like that who think they’re metal and they’re really not. No, these are the HARDCORE metal bands who can put out great music that are dark and brutal. Groups like Stone Sour, Chimaira, Hatebreed, NothingFace, Slipknot, Murderdolls, Sevendust, Ill Nino and a whole bunch of others make this a great and successful soundtrack. As I said in the beginning of the review, this is one of those rare soundtracks where you can listen to the whole thing without fumbling around with the tracks. You don’t have to worry about skipping track after track to get to the two or three songs you only like. While there are some I like better than others, I think this is an exceptional listen. My favourite songs are “how can I live” by Ill Nino, “snap” by Slipknot,” “ether” by NothingFace, “condemned until rebirth” by Hatebreed, “inside the cynic” by Stone Sour, “army of me” by Chimaira, and “middle of nowhere” by From Autumn to Ashes. And you will be happy to know that this time the album is NOT CENSORED. What do I mean by “this time?” Well, this album was released by Roadrunner Records, which happens to be the same record company that did the “Resident Evil” soundtrack. And if you remember that soundtrack, you’ll also remember that it was censored. To this day I still have no idea why they did that. Well, you won’t find any censoring on this album (unless you get the clean version), so I am very happy about that. “Freddy vs. Jason: The Soundtrack” is a great album for those who love heavy and dark songs by intense bands. You won’t find any “soft” or “quiet” songs here. They’re loud, they’re intense and they’re in your face. A great collection of some outstanding metal tunes. Check it out... if you dare.
For all of you who have seen this very cool movie a lot of times (like me) you would have noticed the very cool music in the background which plays for nearly the whole movie. This music is harmonic in places and then goes very dark and evil. For all of you people who like bands such as spinehsank and drowning pool then you will probably notice some of the same instrumental sounds on this soundtrack... BUY IT!!
This freddy vs jason album is great! All the music is proper Thrash Metal (A real album to mosh to). Great songs by ill nino, mushroomhead, killswitch engage, slipknot and the whole album is worth it. Basically if you like bands lke slayer you'll love this! enoy it as much as i enjoyed it :)
