As the release of The Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack looms this week, Friday, June 18th, via Loma Vista Recordings (physical LPs out July 16th), there is a new single and visualizer out to feast your ears and eyes upon. Masterminded by Executive Producer Tyler Bates along with Health and Chino Moreno of Deftones have released “Anti-Life” from the album! For Health, this is their second epic team up in a row, following their new song with Nine Inch Nails “Isn’t Everyone” and their last album, also out on the same label, Vol. 4 :: Slaves Of Fear. Pre-orders are live now for the album that features DC Comics-centric songs, sensational mashups, all with Bates’ deft cinematic composing touch.

Just as the lauded DC Comics “Dark Nights: Death Metal” series isn’t the typical superhero storyline, this musical counterpart isn’t the typical superhero soundtrack. Acclaimed composer Bates here unites an array of artists across various genres—including Soccer Mommy, Chelsea Wolfe, Grey Daze, Denzel Curry, and Manchester Orchestra—forming his own musical super crew to create a first-of-its kind companion piece of original music, which adds further dimension to the acclaimed series from Greg Capullo and Scott Snyder through a multimedia experience including custom limited edition comics, videos, and more.
All artists involved took a hands-on approach with Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack, contributing songs—and in the case of a few, collaborating together for the first time—inspired by the text that depicts a hellish Earth twisted beyond recognition, wherein the Justice League is at the mercy of the Dark Multiverse and a diabolical Batman Who Laughs.
Previous Dark Nights: Death Metal Soundtrack singles include: Manchester Orchestra’s “Never Ending,” Denzel Curry’s “Bad Luck,” Chelsea Wolfe’s “Diana,” Maria Brink’s “Meet Me In The Fire (Feat. Andy Biersack),” and Mastodon’s “Forged By Neron.” The soundtrack is available for pre-order on digital download, CD, and 2xLP-with exclusive Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman vinyl variant covers, 11 limited edition character trading cards, and more
