Digital New Releases:
NIGHTFLYERS – [Download/Listen]
Score by Will Bates.
You can attribute much of the atmospheric terror in Nightflyersto Will Bates’ synth-inspired score that recalls old school John Carpenter and Vangelis’ score for the first Blade Runner. – Josh Weiss, SYFY Wire
George R.R. Martin’s (“Game of Thrones”) new Nightflyers series on Syfy features score by Will Bates (Fall On Your Sword)! Showrunner Jeff Buhler has described Nightflyers as a “space horror series”:
Set in the year 2093, Nightflyers is a psychological thriller that follows a team of scientists aboard the Nightflyer, the most advanced ship ever built, as they embark on a journey to find other life forms. Their mission takes them to the edge of the solar system, and to the edge of insanity, as they realize true horror isn’t waiting for them in outer space—it’s already on their ship.
TRAVELERS SEASON 2 – [Download/Listen]
Score by Adam Lastiwka.
Hailed the must-see sci-fi show on Netflix by Cinemablend, with Forbes deeming season 2 “bigger and better” than season 1, Travelersis certainly gathering high praise — and so is its soundtrack. – Hypable
You won’t have to beam into a host body to access the sought-after Travelers Season 2 score by Adam Lastiwka, because the album is available now digitally on all music services worldwide! In tandem with the Season 3 debut on Netflix, the wildly popular science fiction drama is a break out hit thanks to Producer Brad Wright (“Stargate: Atlantis”, “Stargate: SG-1” and “The Outer Limits”), devoted fans and the stellar ensemble cast [Eric McCormack (“Will & Grace”), Mackenzie Porter, Nesta Cooper, Jared Abahamson, Reilly Dolman, and Patrick Gilmore]!
In celebration of the Season 3 series debut, we have also released a bonus track to the Season 1 soundtrack exclusively on Bandcamp (see below)!
Travelers Season 1 + Bandcamp Exclusive Bonus Track:
THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS – [Download/Listen]
Score by Paul Saunderson.
Tim Wardle’s engrossing and sometimes enraging documentary Three Identical Strangers about triplets grows darker and more disturbing, before developing into a shocker. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
Sundance Award-winning film Three Identical Strangers features score by Paul Saunderson (Starfish, “Strike Back” Cinemax series), available now digitally worldwide first on Apple Music and iTunes! The documentary directed by Tim Wardle won Best Documentary at the Chicago Film Critics Association Awards!
COMMANDO NINJA – [Download/Listen]
Score by Thomas Cappeau.
From the wailing guitars and gorgeous synths to emotional vocals and an energetic rhythm section, Volt Age’s theme song finds itself in the company of Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” from Rocky 3 and even the David Hasselhoff-Mitch Murder collaboration “True Survivor” from Kung Fury — when it comes to embodying a certain spirit and energy of the film it’s supporting. – Vehlinggo

The album also features the fist-pumping title track, “Commando Ninja” by electronic musician Volt Age.
