When you think of the zombie apocalypse, the fist-pumping, arena rock stylings of Muse might not be the most immediate musical match you make in your mind, but somehow those two things come together in video "Isolated System," cut to lots of new footage from "World War Z."

World War Z

When you think of the zombie apocalypse, the fist-pumping, arena rock stylings of Muse might not be the most immediate musical match you make in your mind, but somehow those two things come together in video "Isolated System," cut to lots of new footage from "World War Z." 

The track, from the band's album The 2nd Law, builds around a piano hook not unlike Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells" (aka that scary music from "The Exorcist"), but swells into something with a grandeur all its own, and by the end of the video you understand why the track and movie were matched. Among the footage, there doesn't seem to be anything particularly spoilery, just lots of zombie mayhem and destruction and Brad Pitt looking Very Concerned. And while the band weren't able to score the entire film (they were asked, but scheduling kept them out of the game) they have also provided another tune to the movie as well.

"World War Z" opens on June 21st and while a larger consensus on the movie is still forthcoming, some early reviews have landed.
