The drums of war beat in new music for ‘Godzilla vs Kong’


Blockbuster season is starting up early with the arrival of the mega-monster movie fight film Godzilla vs Kong and this one is gonna be GNARLY!

Alongside the new trailer, which definitely got us amped, we now have a new look inside the action thanks to new pieces of score that have been released by Warner Brothers Pictures.

Noted composer Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL, is taking the reins for the music on this one and as he is known for he has crafted an intricate score that reflects the characterization of these legends and now audiences can sample it for themselves.

For Godzilla’s score, titled ‘Pensacola, FL’ we get an aggressive, mechanized piece of music that pulls in the classic beats of the original 1950s Godzilla theme, which is then mixed in with a contemporary dark edge that is sure to set you on point.

The score for Kong, on the other hand, titled ‘Skull Island’ reflects the prehistoric nature of Kong, and uses a strong sense of tribal drum sounda and echoes themes of strength and power. This one is sure to have you beating your chest and howling as only Kong can.

These two new pieces make for an impressive thing to listen to and really tease out the atmosphere that director Adam Wingard is going for here in Godzilla vs Kong. This is a blockbuster that truly aims to deliver the thrills and with music like this accompanying the huge action that Wingard and his team are bringing to the screen you can bet that this is going to lead to some epic moments that long time monster fans will be very excited to finally witness.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans’ origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.
