Editorial Reviews

"In the darkest hours of a cold winter night, I read a script chronicling adventurous LARPers, an evil curse, a disgruntled heavy metal singer, wizards, warriors and the Hell Lord Abominog," said composer Bear McCreary. "As I read, my musical imagination filled with soaring bagpipes, drop-tuned distorted guitars, double kick drums, blaring horns, dulcimers and ethereal vocals-everything I love about music in one epic score! Producing the soundtrack for KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM has been a joyous experience. I think of it as a 'heavy metal fantasy concept album,'" said McCreary. The KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM soundtrack features performances by heavy metal and rock luminaries including Brendon Small (Dethklok), Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio), Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa), Steve Bartek (Oingo Boingo), Ira Ingber (Bob Dylan), Pete Griffin (Three Inches of Blood) and Joe Travers (Zappa Plays Zappa).

I absolutely loved this soundtrack! I'm a huge fan of Bear McCreary to begin with, and this doesn't disappoint! This was an awesome mix of metal meeting fantasy (the flutey, bagpipe type stuff), and to me, fit the movie perfectly (I was also a huge fan of the movie). As I watched the movie, I knew this was a soundtrack I wanted. It brings two geek realms together to portray an epic battle of kickassness!

Noy only was the movie an enjoyable horror comedy, but the soundtrack surprisingly enjoyable by itself. I sometimes loop it at work and listen to it several times ina row. A weird fusion of medieval dance and doom metal songs, I find it utterly enjoyable. The fusion works better than I would have expected.

Kudos to Bear McCeary!

Yes, there's some metal-y guitars, and they're mixed with some purposefully (I assume) cheesy middle-age music. No themes really stood out to me; it might be worthwhile to a fan of either the movie or the composer but mostly just some low-calorie jamming. The album clocks in at just over an hour, and does have some liner notes with the physical CD.

What I love about Bear McCreary is that he pours passion into every project he scores. His talents and style are applicable in almost any scenario, and his music has created some amazing sonic worlds to get lost in. He can handle deep emotions, has wonderful melodies and a sound that is instantly recognizable. He can score something as masterful as Europa Report or he can let loose and have some serious fun with something like Knights Of Badassdom. Knights Of Badassdom is a movie as ridiculous as it sounds. The story revolves around a group of LARPers (Live Action Role Players) who accidentally awaken an ancient succubus. Now they must put an end to the evil entity. What Bear McCreary has done with the score is pretty awesome though, and it’s a real blast.

How often are you going to come across a rock score heavily featuring the bagpipe in what sounds like Braveheart meets Robert Rodriguez? I'm going to say not that often. The music has two sides to it. You have the fantastical side filled with elegance and timelessness, and you have the balls to the wall rock side of it. You feel the two sides become established, and then they just clash together for a damn good time. The music is not chaos though. It’s actually a very excellently structured score that builds to a fantastic finale. The electric guitars that fill up most of the score can become overbearing at times, and in those moments you feel like you’re at a rock concert. It almost takes you out of the narrative and into a performance. That would probably the only weakness, but given the nature of the film it's hardly a distraction. Other than that it’s a score that embraces itself and its unique identity. I promise you won’t find a score quite like Knights Of Badassdom in quite some time.
