Following his astounding soundtrack to the telekinesis-themed horror film The Mind's Eye, Zombi co-founder Steve Moore scored another thriller, Joe Lynch's Mayhem. As with The Mind's Eye, Moore's Mayhem score is a sprawling affair, containing more than 30 tracks, and they seem to encompass elements of nearly every style of music in which Moore has created. There's pulsating electro-disco, laced with bubbling arpeggios and rising synths, such as opener "Welcome to TSC" and closer "The King Falls," as well as the more bombastic "Showdown." There are bits of moody trip-hop, such as the succinct "Thank God for Coffee." Ambient pieces like "We Are Brave" provide momentary periods of reflection, but longer, more developed tracks like "ID-7" are much more intense, with pounding drum attacks and a much more ferocious edge to the synths. "Mine's Bigger" is one of the more aggressive tracks, particularly due to its bashing drums and growling guitar, but while those sounds seem to signal the coming of a moment of bloody terror, much of the piece's second half seems suspended in the night air. The soundtrack never stays in one place for long, with most of the tracks lasting only a minute or two, and even the lengthier ones (which are still under four minutes) seem to switch directions a few times, suddenly exploding into frenzy or drifting away just as it seems like the intensity is about to ramp up. The album feels a bit more scattered than The Mind's Eye; plenty of the pieces just seem way too short to make a lasting impression on their own. Of course, being a soundtrack, it's all about the big picture, and as a whole, it's a heady, all-encompassing world of suspenseful sounds, demonstrating Moore's mastery of the form.
