Fresh off of closing out the long-awaited Snyder Cut of Justice League with a haunting rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, Corner Brook’s Allison Crowe has re-teamed with Hollywood A-lister Zack Snyder once again for his Netflix Zombie-thriller, Army of the Dead. And she’s not coming alone. Details below!
Viva Las Vegas!! Rising from the desert sands, a signature tune for Elvis, (penned by Doc Pomus & Mort Shuman), swings and roars back to life as the soundtrack to the wild opening title sequence of Army Of The Dead – Hollywood auteur Zack Snyder’s newest creation, a zombie heist+ spectacle set in Vegas.
Allison Crowe, recently elegiacally closing Zack Snyder’s Justice League, joins movie music maven Richard Cheese for a duet to raise the undead along with the living. (The fabulous Cheese – actor/musician Mark Jonathan Davis of Lounge Against the Machine – earlier serenades audiences in “Dawn of the Dead”, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” 2016, and more).

Milan Records, (an imprint of Sony), releases the original motion picture soundtrack on May 21 – and the album opens with Allison & Richard’s singular dual rendering of #VivaLasVegas! Along with vocal/piano+ celluloid heroes, the OST includes the film’s electronic music score from super-composer Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL (also fresh off the #SnyderCut).
The movie Army Of The Dead opens this Friday, May 14 – showing in 600 cinemas across America, before it globally opens on Netflix – May 21st.
NB #ArmyOfTheDead” is very much a “hard R” movie experience – as befits the zombie/horror genre. Anything from The Stone Quarry team of creators will provide intellectual and spiritual content as well as visceral thrills. The zombie genre, of course, offers a particular kind of catharsis and, so, it’s for an appropriately age-restricted audience. Director Zack Snyder notes: “Viewer discretion is definitely advised.”
