We are exactly one week away from the release of Motionless In White‘s brand new album Scoring The End of The World‘s release and as the band countdown the days until you hear their latest (heavy) album, they’re gifting fans one last single – ‘Scoring The End Of The World‘.
This album closer (and title track) finds the band teaming up with iconic producer Mick Gordon for an industrial metal soundtrack featuring a focus on Chris Motionless‘ melodic performance and the electronic synth sounds throughout. Following on from singles ‘Cyberhex‘, Slaughterhouse‘ and ‘Masterpiece‘, fans can get a vast look at the upcoming LP but know there’s still a few surprises in store upon release day!
In our album review (dropping next week), on this song in particular, we wrote:
“The opening feels like the start of a Mortal Kombat game which can be attested to the work of producer extraordinaire Mick Gordon, who teams up with the band for this one following his previous heavy soundtrack compositions for video games like Doom Eternal and Wolfenstein. Those influences shine through because this feels more like an adventure than a musical experience and perfectly sends the listener off on their way. Don’t expect too much screaming though, the focus is on the clean melodic delivery and the spoken word aspect, surrounded by a mechanical-esque backdrop which served as the overall theme of the album.”
We also sat down with Chris to dissect the album and find out which thriller movie it would best represent in this day and age – and if you know and love Australian cinema, there’s one movie that he couldn’t NOT mention. Give it a spin and prepare yourself for the end…
