Varese Records takes us on a ride of escapism with "Alien Vs Predator", featuring the magnificent score of Harald Kloser, who also gave us "Thirteenth Floor"  and "Day After Tomorrow"  ~ just to name a few, there are more if you want to check them out.
The music is a roller coaster experience "HANGING BODIES" ~ listen to "ALIEN VS. PREDATOR MAIN THEME", is almost hymn like in content, as if you're standing in cathedral witnessing a funeral procession passing by, very haunting ~ "ANTARCTICA", blends percussion, heavy brass and pure orchestration abound with lifting strings that echo back and forth ~ "TEMPLE", sends vibes of native American instruments mixed with solo piano and strings, very effective ~ "HISTORY OF THE WORLD", main theme comes through with alternate arrangements, under towing counterparts surface and a chorus quietly brings a new beginning of chanting that will give you chills ~ "ALIEN FIGHT", Kloser pulls out all the stops on this one, hold on tight for a fast and entertaining journey ~ "THE END...OR MAYBE NOT", featuring all cues remixed and setting up a possible sequel.
Composer Harald Kloser brings film music to the maximum ~ been listening to this album over and over again, his depth and orchestral mix of tempo, drama and mood swings is incredible ~ look out James Horner and John Williams, Maestro Kloser is giving all the "film-score-buffs" pure satisfaction through his compositions...just the way we like 'em!
