“When we were choosing songs for the ‘Saw IV’ soundtrack, we asked ourselves, ‘What kind of music would the ‘Saw’ characters Jigsaw and Amanda listen to?’” reveals Jonathan Scott Miller, principal of Artists’ Addiction Records, which will issue Saw IV Original Soundtrack on CD and as a digital release October 23, 2007; an extended digital release will follow in November. Miller served as soundtrack producer alongside Artists’ Addiction principals Jonathan Platt and Jonathan McHugh (“Saw IV” producers Oren Koules and Mark Burg are executive soundtrack producers).
The answer to this pivotal question, as any fan of the hit “Saw” film series would guess, are the dangerous, dramatic strains of hard rock, metal and industrial music. These sounds are represented on Saw IV Original Soundtrack by giants of those genres – Nitzer Ebb, who unveil highly anticipated new material with the hard-hitting “Payroll (JohnO Mix),” Ministry (“Life Is Good”), Skinny Puppy (“Spasmolytic [Deftones Remix (Habitual Mix)]),” “Saw” composer/Nine Inch Nails alum Charlie Clouser (“Just Begun”) and Sixx: A.M., fronted by Mötley Crüe bassist/songwriter Nikki Sixx (“Tomorrow”) – as well as established bands who’ve been influenced by them, including Drowning Pool (“Shame”) and Avenged Sevenfold (“Eternal Rest”), and up-and-comers forging a similarly creative path like From Autumn to Ashes (“On the Offensive”) and Submersed (“Better Think Again”).
