Laibach - IRON SKY : THE COMING RACE CD
Mute is excited to announce the release of legendary Slovenian group Laibach’s brand new album and soundtrack for the dystopian sci-fi political comedy IRON SKY : THE COMING RACE. Out June 30th on vinyl and CD formats. The vinyl features a printed inner sleeve and includes an audio download code with additional tracks.
Iron Sky: The Coming Race (dir. Timo Vuorensola, 2019) is the follow-up to the acclaimed Finnish film Iron Sky (dir. Timo Vuorensola 2012), which was set in alternative universe where a group of German Nazis, who had escaped to the moon in 1945, plot to take over the world after lying dormant in a secret military base on the dark side of the moon. Laibach were commissioned to compose the music for both films, with their original soundtrack gathering wide acclaim. For the film’s sequel, which was largely crowd funded, the Slovenian collective once more composed the soundtrack for this outrageous dystopian fantasy, which shows humanity trying to survive on the former Nazi moon base after nuclear devastation. As supplies are running low, a small band of survivors journey to the hollow centre of the earth, on the way battling an ancient shape-shifting reptilian race. Like its predecessor, the film merges sci-fi fantasy with modern political humour, this time adding an unhealthy dose of outlandish conspiracy theories.
This new soundtrack is as epic and cinematic as the first, providing a musical journey of orchestral scores with bonus songs featured on the CD and download, including the track “The Coming Race” that adds Slovenian Grammy
