Underworld: Evolution [Original Soundtrack]

All Music Guide - Cammila Collar
More than just a collection of songs that happened to appear in the same film, the Underworld: Evolution soundtrack is a stylistically even album, consisting mainly of metal and screamo, with a handful of industrial and glam rock tracks thrown in for good measure. The disc kicks off with an offering from Puscifer (a collaboration between Maynard James Keenan and Danny Lohner), "The Undertaker (Renholder Mix)," a slick tune that sets a mellow tone. Most of the disc, however, is dominated by post-hardcore bands like My Chemical Romance and Aiden.

More than just a collection of songs that happened to appear in the same film, the Underworld: Evolution soundtrack is a stylistically even album, consisting mainly of metal and screamo, with a handful of industrial and glam rock tracks thrown in for good measure. The disc kicks off with an offering from Puscifer (a collaboration between Maynard James Keenan and Danny Lohner), "The Undertaker (Renholder Mix)," a slick tune that sets a mellow tone. Most of the disc, however, is dominated by post-hardcore bands like My Chemical Romance and Aiden. A song by Slipknot, "Vermillion Pt. 2 (Bloodstone Mix)," also appears on the soundtrack but breaks character completely. There are no rap-metal vocals and there is no screaming; on the contrary, the song sounds mostly like an industrial ballad, though this may in part be a result of remixing. Acts like Senses Fail and Atreyu offer up similar screamo tracks, abiding to the standard of pairing a screaming vocalist with a singing one. A song by Alkaline Trio called "Burn (Alleged Remix)" is quite enjoyable, separating itself from the more cathartic artists surrounding it and transcending the heavy-pain-vibe to evoke a Depeche Mode-esque lack of self-awareness. Likewise, gothy prog-metal group Lacuna Coil deliver their trademark mystical sound on "Our Truth." There are also a few fun, glam-rock romps by Bobby Gold and Meat Beat Manifesto, which draw nicely on acts like T-Rex and Venus in Furs without ever becoming derivative.

    Good Collaboration of Artists

    This is a very cool soundtrack. I absolutely love the remix of "To The End" by MCR. Also, there are other cool bands on here, like Aiden, Hawthorne Heights, and Lacuna Coil.
