The hard rock-packed Roadrunner soundtrack to the forthcoming film "Resident Evil" will sport a new version of Slipknot's "My Plague," as well new tracks from Coal Chamber ("Something") and Static X ("Anything But This"). At deadline, the full track listing for the album was not yet finalized, but it will also feature tracks from Marilyn Manson, Mudvayne, and Rammstein, according to a label spokesperson.
Due out March 12, the album will be represented by a single release of the revamped "My Plague," dubbed the "New Abuse Mix." The original track appears on the band's latest Roadrunner album, "Iowa," which debuted last September at No. 3 on The Billboard 200. Slipknot will capture live performance footage for a "My Plague" video during its Feb. 16 gig at the London Arena.
The band also plans to use the London footage as the basis for a forthcoming DVD relese, tentatively due out in September. Slipknot is scheduled to remain on the road internationally through a March 23-24 stand in Tokyo.
Along with new mixes of tracks by Manson, the Crystal Method, and others, the "Resident Evil" set will also feature a drastically remixed take of Ill Nino's "What Comes Around," from last year's debut Roadrunner set "Revolution/Revolucion." Guitarist Marc Rizzo describes the new version as having "total different parts with new guitar riffs. Almost death metal."
The Sony Pictures film stars Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez, and is due March 15 in U.S. theaters. For a preview, visit the official "Resident Evil" Web site.
Meanwhile, Coal Chamber's new track "Glow" will be featured on the upcoming "Scorpion King" soundtrack, which will also boast tracks from Creed, P.O.D., Godsmack, System Of A Down, Nickelback, and Sevendust. "Glow" can also be found on Coal Chamber's forthcoming third album, "Dark Days," due out in the spring.
While a release date for the album has not yet been set, the band will, as previously reported, head out on the inaugural Jagermeister Music Tour with Drowning Pool and Ill Nino. The trek is set to kick off March 8 in Orlando, Fla., and is scheduled to run through an April 24 date in an as-yet-undetermined location.
The tour will see Nadja Puelen playing bass for the band, taking the place of founding member Rayna Foss-Rose, who exited last month to raise the child she and Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose welcomed in 1999. "This was a hard decision to make, but is one that Morgan and I feel is important to our lives and our family," she said in a statement. "I wish nothing but the best for the band, and will always love and cherish the time we had together." Coal Chamber fans will recognize Puelen, as she previously filled in for Rayna while she was pregnant and unable to tour.
