Paul Haslinger, formerly of the Grammy®-nominated band, Tangerine Dream, is known for his scores on such films as Near Dark (directed by Kathryn Bigelow), Crank, and the Emmy®- and Golden Globe®-nominated TV series, “The Sleeper Cell.” He is currently composing on the “Fear The Walking Dead” TV series. Listen to the interview below as Paul discusses the Rise of the Lycans score and his years with Tangerine Dream.
Starring Rhona Mitra, Michael Sheen and Bill Nighy, this third installment of the wildly popular Underworld franchise focuses on the origins of the feud between the race of aristocratic vampires and their one-time slaves, the Lycans. Watch Underworld: Rise of the Lycans now on On Demand (rent it on iTunes) and on Blu-ray/DVD.
We get it, Game of Thrones fans. If it wasn’t for the struggle for the throne, the power-hungry opportunists, dragons and the White Walkers (who doesn’t love zombies, let alone ice zombies) to remind us that real life is actually quite grand by comparison, we’d be at a loss on Sunday nights. Lest we forget the damsels in continual distress, let us also not forget the occasional blood-letting and old-fashioned poisoning to fill our lusty goblets. Medieval fantasies and epic tales of alternative worlds really tickle our trebuchets, which is why we created our own version of a fantasy land featuring soundtracks from movies of a similar realm. Explore with us!
Game of Thrones fans have an opportunity to dig deeper into the realm via our world’s Medieval and Renaissance periods.In Reclaiming the Blade, the documentary chronicles the history of swordplay and includes testimonials from Lord of the Rings’ Viggo Mortensen and Karl Urban, and Bob Anderson, the legendary sword trainer.Underworld: Rise of the Lycans offers a stylized interpretation of a medieval period, when torture chambers, suits of armour and swords were still a weapon of choice for Vampires and Lycans alike. So, go ahead and indulge: grab your goblet, watch the trailers and let the soundtracks bring a piece of that world into your living room.
