Bounty Killer (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)


Composer: Greg Edmonson
Label: Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 15 October 2013

Lakeshore Records release the score to Bounty Killer: It’s been 20 years since the corporations took over the world’s governments. Their thirst for power and profits led to the corporate wars, a fierce global battle that laid waste to society as we know it. Born from the ash, the Council of Nine rose as a new law and order for this dark age. To avenge the corporations’ reckless destruction, the Council issues death warrants for all white collar criminals. Their hunters - the bounty killer. From amateur savage to graceful assassin, the bounty killers now compete for body count, fame and a fat stack of cash. They’re ending the plague of corporate greed by exterminating the self serving CEO and providing the survivors of the apocalypse with retribution. These are the new heroes. This is the age of the Bounty Killer...

Greg Edmonson's score for Bounty Killer is a fairly enjoyable release, with some interesting themes woven throughout the tracks.

Personal favourite tracks include: 'The Kiss' (which reminded me of Thomas Newman's music for The Shawshank Redemption); 'Council Massacre' (which is easily this score's most moving piece); and 'Mary Gets Shot'.

There are also two vocal tracks: 'Granny Chainsaw' - Loren Gold & James Renald; and 'Let's Get on With It' - Clarence Murray. The album contains 20 tracks, with a running time of approximately 49 minutes.

If you enjoyed the movie and are a keen score collector, then this is worth picking up. However, if you're just a casual soundtrack fan... there are plenty of other more worthy releases you can pick up before this.
