CoverFans of Video Game Music have something new to check out this week with the release of Lorne Balfe's original score for ASSASSIN'S CREED III: THE TYRANNY OF KING WASHINGTON - a 3-part DLC series exploring an alternate reality in which George Washington goes mad with unlimited power, foregoing Presidency to rule as tyrannical King. The new music is available now on iTunes and other digital retailers via Ubisoft Music.

Regular readers of The Rock Father know that I'm a sucker for pop culture - especially for the stuff I grew up on in the 80s. Now, the folks at Silva Screen Records have tapped into that again with the release of 100 GREATEST TV THEMES VOLUME 3, a four-disc, 100-track collection of songs ranging from the recent to the classic.  These are new recordings performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, London Music Works and Michigan Music Works. Take a look at the tracklisting below...

On April 16 (this Tuesday), Warner Bros. and Netherworld Games will release INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US, an epic fighting game set in the world of DC Comics. I've previously covered the game here on The Rock Father, and now comes news that Watertower Music will be releasing INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US - THE ALBUM (pre-order on iTunes), a companion to the game and it's original cinematic score (also up for pre-order on iTunes), available on launch day. Featuring tracks from AWOLNATION, RISE AGAINST, DEPECHE MODE, and more, full details on the record can be viewed below, complete with preview tracks...

The 2010 Australian film, WASTED ON THE YOUNG is gearing up for a 'Stateside DVD release after previously-hitting VOD (you can grab it on iTunes now), and to get the hype machine rolling, a new music video for the HEALTH track "Die Slow" has been assembled using footage from the film. You can check out the new video below. WASTED ON THE YOUNG arrives on DVD April 23 via Indomina Releasing (Luv, Afro Samurai).

The fact that a remake of the EVIL DEAD actually happened makes me glad that I'm not still working in the "horror business" full-time. I imagine that the horror sites have just about hit the overkill level of hype for the flick, which I just watched the trailer for tonight. Not impressed. The original was fun. This doesn't look fun at all. That said, the original score by Roque Baños will be released by La-La Land Records next month, and there's a good chance that it will be better than the film itself. Check out the official announcement, which arrived here at Rock Father HQ earlier this evening...

100greatestAfter releasing their first 100 GREATEST FILM THEMES collection in 2007, Silva Screen Records followed it up with another 100 in 2010. Now comes 100 GREATEST FILM THEMES - TAKE 3, a fresh batch of important pieces of film music performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and London Music Works.
