AL JOURGENSEN'S 13TH PLANET TO RELEASE "WICKED LAKE" SOUNDTRACK
Now that Ministry has wrapped up its farewell "C U La TouR," Al Jourgensen is concentrating on a myriad of other projects at his El Paso, TX-based 13th Planet empire. The first of these projects is the release of the "Wicked Lake" soundtrack, set to arrive in stores on November 24, 2008 in conjunction with the film's October 7 DVD release.
In a rare public appearance, Jourgensen, along with the stars of "Wicked Lake," will sign advance copies of the DVD on Thursday, Septeber 25 at the Virgin Megastore in Hollywood beginning at 7:00PM.
The Grammy-nominated Jourgensen, who produced the soundtrack, wrote, scored and recorded the music at his 13th Planet studios early this year. While "Wicked Lake" is Jourgensen's debut scoring for a feature film, it's not his first foray into soundtracks, as he wrote and performed tracks for Steven Spielberg's "Artificial Intelligence: AI" (2001), Paul Verhoeven's "RoboCop" (1987) and "The Matrix" (1999) - the soundtrack captured a Grammy.
The "Wicked Lake" soundtrack offers 15 tracks, most from 13th Planet's stable of artists which includes Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Prong, Ascension of The Watchers and False Icons. One gem is a previously unreleased Ministry track, "Cuz U R Next," one of the last songs written by the late Paul Raven with Jourgensen, and features Raven on bass. Also on the soundtrack are two Revolting Cocks tracks, the brand new "Hookerbot3000," and "Ten Million Ways to Die," from the 2006 "Cocked & Loaded" CD that features Butthole Surfer Gibby Haynes. In addition, through Nuclear Blast Records is Meshuggah's "Combustion" and Threat Signal's "As I Destruct" are featured. The complete track listing is below.
