Borland appears in a supergroup dubbed the Damning Well, which also features A Perfect Circle's Josh Freese, Filter's Richard Patrick and Nine Inch Nails contributor Danny "Renhold" Lohner. The foursome has one cut on the album, due Sept. 19 from Lakeshore Records.
The Damning Well's "Awakening," which opens the soundtrack, is Borland's first major project since leaving Limp Bizkit. His own group, Eat The Day, has yet been unable to get off the ground. Borland also leant a hand to a remix of A Perfect Circle's "Weak and Powerless," which he worked on with soundtrack organizer Lohner. The latter has previously worked on the soundtracks to "Lost Highway" and "Natural Born Killers."
Writing on his official Web site, Borland describes the remix as a "revisioning." "Danny and I stripped all the music away and wrote brand new parts to accompany [Maynard James Keenan's] voice," Borland says.
Also unique to the soundtrack is new project from Tool/A Perfect Circle vocalist Keenan dubbed Puscifer. Keenan recorded the song "REV 20:20" with Lohner and also teamed with the Red Hot Chili Peppers' John Frusciante for a remix of David Bowie's "Bring Me the Disco King." The latter will appear in its original form on Bowie's upcoming ISO/Columbia album, "Reality."
Former Helmet leader Page Hamilton also resurfaces on the soundtrack, contributing the song "Throwing Punches," while Skinny Puppy donates the previously unreleased "Omptimissed." Other artists who appear include the Dillinger Escape Plan, Finch, Milla, the Icarus Line, Lisa Germano, Concrete Blonde vocalist Johnette Napolitano and K's Choice singer Sarah Bettens.
"Underworld" will be released Sept. 19 in U.S. theaters and stars Kate Beckinsale as a vampire warrior locked in a decades-long battle with a clan of werewolves. It's the directorial debut from Len Wiseman.
