    Contest: Songs Inspired By The Warriors Sampler

    Next week Tuesday the first new Mortal Kombat music soundtrack in over 10 years, Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired By The Warriors, will be released. If you are on the fence, you can now actually preview the entire soundtrack on Amazon.com. Those looking to pre-order can order the physical CD on Amazon for $13.32 or the Amazon MP3 Album for $9.49.

    To celebrate this we are going to have a small contest. We have over 10 Mortal Kombat Music Promo Cards from the Mortal Kombat Truck Tour. Each card has a code for three free songs from the upcoming soundtrack.

    You can see some of the cards below:


    To enter the contest, simply leave a comment on this story by 12 Noon Central Time on April 1st, 2011 telling us your favorite song from the album.

    The randomly selected winners will have the unique code and song download instructions sent to them via Private Message. Please do not enter if you got the free songs already from the Truck Tour, this contest is intended for those no lucky enough to make the Truck Tour themselves. Only one entry will be counted per person.

    Here is the full details on the album from the press release:

    MORTAL KOMBAT: SONGS INSPIRED BY THE WARRIORS
    TURNS THE VOLUME UP ON APRIL 5

    Soundtrack Executive Produced by JFK of MSTRKRFT/Death From Above 1979

    Burbank, CA (March 24, 2011) - WaterTower Music and Teenage Riot Records have unveiled the details of the album Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors. This collection of electronic music inspired by the upcoming Mortal Kombat game is being executive produced by JFK (of the DJ/ production duo MSTRKRFT and Death From Above 1979) and is set for release April 5th.

    JFK has assembled a spectacular group of DJs and producers to continue the tradition of weaving electronic music into the Mortal Kombat aesthetic. He enthusiastically describes the project, saying "It's always exciting to have the opportunity to write music for something outside of the traditional means, especially when it is for a project like Mortal Kombat that has had such pop cultural significance for so long. It’s a great step forward for the ways that video games can interact with music across unique genres and mediums."

    That same excitement has been echoed by the artists who are contributing to the project. "I've been a Mortal Kombat fan since Mortal Kombat 2 came out on Sega Genesis. This was completely a passion project for me, and I'm so honored to be a part of the Mortal Kombat legacy!" declares glitch-step wunderkind Skrillex, who contributes “Reptile’s Theme” to the project.

    Celebrated producer Harvard Bass, who recorded “Helado (Sub-Zero’s Theme)” for the collection, adds emphatically "When I found out I was going to work on music for Mortal Kombat, I almost lost it. I've been a huge fan of the game and it was a privilege to be a part of video game history." And DJ and producer Congorock says “Mortal Kombat has shocked me since the first time I played it…for the album I went for something more atmospheric and less clubby, but still it feels like a dream coming true.”

    MORTAL KOMBAT: SONGS INSPIRED BY THE WARRIORS TRACK LISTING:

    1. Deathstalker (Scorpion's Theme) - JFK of MSTRKRFT
    2. Mileena's Theme - Tokimonsta
    3. Helado (Sub-Zero's Theme) - Harvard Bass
    4. Liu Kang's Theme - Congorock
    5. Goro's Theme - Bird Peterson
    6. Reptile's Theme - Skrillex
    7. Raiden's Theme - 9th Wonder
    8. Johnny Cage's Theme - LA Riots
    9. Baraka's Theme - Run DMT
    10. Kung Lao's Theme - Felix Cartal
    11. Kano's Theme - Them Jeans
    12. Shao Kahn's Theme - Sound Of Stereo
    Thanks to forum member fraysol for the press release and pebkac for a bunch of the codes we're giving away.

    Update 4/1/2011: The contest is now closed, and winners are being contacted now. We posted up the results of the favorite song poll in the the contest comments.

    What little bits we've heard of Reptile's theme is awesome. I think I'll have to pick that.

    Pat,
    Will the MP3's be available on iTunes, on April 5th, as well???

    I just got a $40 gift card for iTunes, and I'd like to put it to good use.



    EDIT:
    Thanks for the info Pat.

    OT: My favorite has to still be Mileena's Theme by Tokimonsta.
    I've been hooked ever since I saw her Vignette. "Let's dance."

    Re: Contest: Songs Inspired By The Warriors Sampler

    For me It's a cross between baraka's and reptiles, baraka's is high on atmosphere and is my favourite dubstep song ever, but it does tend to repeat a little to much, Reptiles on the other hand is more of a straight music track and bashes out one hell of a beat.

    However, my favourite has to be reptiles theme, it's just so damn good! the beat is intense and mixes up throughout the song, skrillex really made something that really does fit the character of reptile but also manages to churn out a great club track in the process, Unlike baraka's which is more for atmosphere and dubstep fans, reptiles can be enjoyed by anyone who likes a good tune. *goes to listen to reptiles theme once again* so damn awesome!

    Holy ass. Kano's is absolutely horrible. Sounds like a remixed Village People song.

    I shan't participate in the contest simply because I'm not really feeling any of those songs. Someone else will enjoy it more than I.

    wow ok, just listened to Baraka's Theme, now I see why everyone is so torn between Reptile's track and Baraka's track, the whole album is sick, but Reptile's track and Baraka's track are both very fitting to the characters personality O_O the whole album is pretty incredible... haha but I stick with my first choice, Reptile's track is my fav. ^_^

    Reptile's, hands down. I've never had a piece of music make me dance like that!

    Re: Contest: Songs Inspired By The Warriors Sampler

    I'll have to go with
    3. Helado (Sub-Zero's Theme) - Harvard Bass
    as my favorite, I feel like it really captures Sub-Zero's essence - mystical and powerful, you can *hear* the chill in the notes.

    Reptile's Theme by Skrillex is a very close 2nd though, it has a different feel than the rest of the album and Skrillex is just, let's face it, awesome :D

    Definitely either Reptile or Mileena, Reptiles because its made by Skrillex, FREAKING SKRILLEX!!!! If Skrillex made it, its automatically eldergod-like :P As for Mileena, it just suits her so well cause it has this smooth, relaxing, seductive feeling, but at the same time feels dark, and evil; just compliments her so well!

    Re: Contest: Songs Inspired By The Warriors Sampler

    A few people are saying that they like Baraka's theme. I think it's only ok, IMO. Reptile or Liu Kang's is my fav. But since Kang's whole one has already been listened to, I'm saying Reptile's is my fav so far.


    EDIT: I tried doing the worm to Reptile's theme. I may have given myself a concussion

    Also, Kahn's theme is a pretty good one 2.

    There are a bunch of great tracks on this album! I love Reptile's, Mileena's, Liu Kang's and Goro's, but my favorite has to be Mileena's Theme.
