A pair of thrash icons are uniting in the film world.
Anthrax‘s Scott Ian and ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo teamed up with composer Fil Eisler to play on the score for Thunder Force, an upcoming Netflix movie.
“I have the pleasure of not only scoring the movie but having two of my childhood heroes play on the soundtrack,” Eisler writes in an Instagram post. “@Anthrax and @slayerbandofficial were some of the first shows I ever saw and they changed me for ever. Cannot tell you how stoked I am to be making music with @scottianthrax and @davelombardo.”
Thunder Force is a superhero comedy starring Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer. It will premiere on Netflix April 9.
If you can’t wait that long to hear Ian and Lombardo’s collaboration, you can listen to them play together on the new Mr. Bungle album The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo, which was released last fall.
