Editorial Reviews

Feel the earth shake and your heart pound as you come face to face with an angry American legend. This soundtrack to a cult favorite includes the original score composed by Edward Douglas of Midnight Syndicate and The Ballad of Paul Bunyan written and performed by Hick'ry Hawkins.

Axe Giant... is a contemporary take on the tall tale of lumberjack Paul Bunyan. Kids at a first-offenders' boot camp discover that the legend of Paul Bunyan is real and must team up with the local sheriff to stop the 15-foot giant's new rampage of terror.

The movie stars genre vet Joe Estevez, Dan Haggerty (Grizzly Adams), Tom Downey (SyFy's War of the Worlds), and Tim Lovelace (Mosquito). Amber Connor, Jesse Kove, Kristina Kopf (The Dead Matter), Clifton Williams, Victoria Ramos, Jill Evyn, and former WWE wrestler Chris Hahn round out the cast. This is the first major role for Kove, son of veteran actor Martin Kove (The Karate Kid 1-3, Rambo).

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic and atmospheric August 29, 2013
By Joker
Format:Audio CD
Axe Giant: The Wrath Of Paul Bunyan (2013) is a horror movie starring Amber Connor, Joe Estevez, Tom Downey, Tim Lovelace, Jesse Kove, Kristina Kopf, Jill Evlyn, Clifton Williams, Victoria Ramos, Chris Hahn, and Dan Haggerty (of Grizzly Adams fame). In this movie, the legend of Paul Bunyan comes to life, and a group of teenagers at a first offenders' boot camp discover there's a lot more to Paul Bunyan than they ever imagined. This is a Gary Jones film that delivers!

This soundtrack, composed by Edward Douglas of the horror/Halloween soundtrack band Midnight Syndicate, really delivers as the perfect epic and atmospheric score to this unique horror movie.

Here are the tracks:

1. Axe Giant Main Title
2. Minnesota 1894
3. Babe's Grave
4. S.T.U.M.P. Medley
The Adventure Begins
Meeks Theme
Sgt. Hoke's Theme
March To Destiny
5. Bunyan At Babe's Grave
6. S.T.U.M.P.S Meet Bunyan
7. No Escape
8. The Legend Of Paul Bunyan
9. Zach's Last Stand
10. Bunyan's Cave
11. Bunyan On The Move
12. Final Showdown
13. Legend's End
14. The Ballad Of Paul Bunyan

The Ballad Of Paul Bunyan is a nice little track with vocals. This is a musical score that can be put on in the background while you're in a dark mood or really any time. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars An A + Soundtrack for a B-Movie September 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD
When you think of a giant, a picture of a large hulking beast normally comes to mind. The beast making each step look extremely difficult to take with the foot landing in a manner that it shakes the ground nearby as it crushes the land and knocks over smaller trees. This is what you will get a sense of in the very first track in the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The soundtrack for the Gary Jones film, "Axe Giant the Wrath of Paul Bunyan" produced by Midnight Syndicate.

The film's plot takes the viewer into a group of first-time offenders at a boot camp who find out, the hard way, that Paul Bunyan is real. The problem they find is the legend is a bit different from what many of us grew up with as a child. This Paul, he isn't so friendly, in fact he swings a mean axe.

This is about all I will say on the movie as this is more about the music featured in the movie. It is of course composed by Edward Douglas and produced by Midnight Syndicate. The music is something that had it been featured a bit more in the movie may have helped me enjoy the film experience more.

The problem in many of these films is that you either get the brilliant soundtrack to be too loud or under-utilized as it is just small background noise that if louder helps build tension. The piece S.T.U.M.P.S Meet Bunyan is a great example of how a piece of music could really set a scene. The piece uses a combination of low base like tones to show Bunyan's movement and his ever changing gate as he chases the kids. The kid's movements are met with a higher pitched sense of quicker musical movements that fit perfectly with a group running for their lives.

The album makes use of several lower toned pieces of music and brass movements to help give the listener a mental image of the giant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this Soundtrack, Skip the Movie August 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I'm reviewing this latest Midnight Syndicate album from two perspectives -- as an album from Midnight Syndicate and as a soundtrack for the Syfy movie by the same name.

Compared to other Midnight Syndicate albums, "Axe Giant" is a bit shorter but the quality of the music is the same. While this does indeed function as a soundtrack, I'll describe this in the next paragraph, it also offers good atmospheric music that you can enjoy entirely solo. Indeed I first listen to just this album before I saw the film and was so impressed by the emotional pulls of the music that I was anxious to see how it did as a soundtrack.

Soundtracks should serve one purchase for a film: creating an emotional reaction in the viewer. The movie is standard Syfy fare though the acting is more on the average side than poor and the story is fast-paced however the cgi is horrible, I had to close my eyes for some of the close-ups of Paul Bunyan and it was so obvious that the actors were in front of green screens at other times. However the soundtrack added a good deal especially when the film focused on Bunyan who said one word in the entire thing by making him both understandable and scary.

The title song is not from this album but then the music on this album is much better than the forgettable title song and adds a good deal to an otherwise average Syfy movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what a horror movie should sound like. April 2, 2014
Format:Audio CD
When you think of horror in music there is one name that should come to mind first: Midnight Syndicate. Midnight Syndicate has been making dark gothic soundtracks for the imagination since 1997. Their music is the kind of mood music you hear in many haunted houses around Halloween and on movie soundtracks such as The Dead Matter and The Rage. Their latest horror soundtrack is for the film Axe Giant: The Wrath Of Paul Bunyan.

For most movies, the soundtrack is something that adds a little atmosphere to the movie and you don't think about it much. In the case of Axe Giant, the musical soundtrack overpowers the movie and that's not a bad thing. The movie is a slasher picture about a group of teenagers in a scared straight type camp in the woods being hunted down by folk legend Paul Bunyan. The movie may have a simple premise but the soundtrack is complex and tells a much more compelling story.

There are 15 songs on this soundtrack and from the first two songs you know your listening to a masterpiece. The first song is Axe Giant's main title which uses a full orchestra to give the impression of an angry giant walking through a forest and sets up a mood of impending doom. While hearing this song I could see in my head, Paul Bunyan making his way past towering pines on his way to kill unsuspecting campers. I fell in love with this soundtrack from this one song and thought the whole soundtrack would sound like that but then the second track blew me away.

Midnight SyndicateTrack two is called "Minnesota 1894". This one really showed the diversity of this album going from the dark mood of the first song and changing the direction to a more laid back folksy sound.
