Saw the movie debut night, got home and immediately started writing this song. Saw the movie again less than 24 hours later, and tomorrow I am seeing it a third time, and plan to see it again sometime next weekend. So obviously I love this movie, in fact that is grand understatement. But I won't say anything about it, I'll get to the real point.

This song is pretty unusual for me, first off it has no guitars at all, not even something resembling one. Now I've had songs with no guitars before, but not with vocals. This is a big orchestrated synth song, where the "real" samples are blended with snyths to make one giant instrument. Omnisphere, EWQL, and Superior Drummer we're my main tools here. I gave the drums a lot of attention since they had a much bigger supporting role than usual, I think they came out quite good smile.gif

I hope you enjoy this, but warning, if you want to see the movie don't read the lyrics below. I do not give anything away directly, as a lot of it is simply implied, but still, fair warning!











LAST WARNING









THE ARCHAEOLOGIST: Prometheus, can you see this?

PROMETHEUS: Images coming in clear, But what do I see?

THE ARCHAEOLOGIST: It is death by the thousands!
A drop of liquid to destroy existence
Disassembling the twisted ladder of
Our imperfect, DNA

Oh Engineer, can you hear me?
Why do you despise us?
What have we done, to deserve your scorn?
Why, God why? Tell me now!

THE INFECTED: Prometheus, can't you hear me?
You cannot allow this plague to persist

PROMETHEUS: What is happening, what of this death you speak?
THE INFECTED: Please just listen, for you must kill me! Please!

THE ARCHAEOLOGIST: Prometheus, forgive me! For you must sacrifice!


PROMETHEUS: Yes, we know
This is to be our fate
Fire on
Ion propulsion


THE ARCHAEOLOGIST: LV_223, Your disease will not claim me!
I want to know, I deserve to know!
Seek out my maker, to know my destroyer
And let my fury be known!

Thanks guys! I am still overly excited about this song, I want to do more in this style, just big synths and huge drums with death metal vocals.
