Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Valhalla Rising' Finally Getting An Official Soundtrack Release

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist September 20, 2013 at 3:58PM

While "Bronson," "Drive" and "Only God Forgives" solidified Nicolas Winding Refn as a director known for his powerful filmmaking and the carefully curated scores and songs he assembles for his films, one movie seemed to be left behind: "Vahalla Rising." The moody, near wordless flick may not be as popular as those other films, but the score is just as stirring anything in those films. And finally, it's getting a proper release.

Valhalla Rising Mikkelsen One Eye

While "Bronson," "Drive" and "Only God Forgives" solidified Nicolas Winding Refn as a director known for his powerful filmmaking and the carefully curated scores and songs he assembles for his films, one movie seemed to be left behind: "Vahalla Rising." The moody, near wordless flick may not be as popular as those other films, but the score is just as stirring anything in those films. And finally, it's getting a proper release.

The score by Peter Peter and Peter Kyed will get equal face time on the forthcoming disc as the work by sound designers Giles Lamb and Douglas MacDougall, in what is collaboratively a pretty beautifully oppressive combination of sounds. But the catch in all this? Milan Records will drop the disc overseas, on October 7th, so you'll either have to import it or wait for domestic date, if/when that ever arrives.   and also release the album (CD/digital) on October 22nd in North America. The label will release a limited edition 180g vinyl on 11/26 and an exclusive red vinyl will be released through Invada Records in the U.K.

Check out the full tracklisting below along with a sample of the title track. [Film Music Reporter]
