    I can envisage Lisa Gerrard as the voice of Stormbringer.... ala the live version of Cantara of Toward the Within....
    Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.

      an orchestral score with heavy rock songs??

      Hey all. This film (if it ever gets made) needs to have an orchestral score. There is no doubt about that. Basil Poledouris (Conan the Barbarian) would have made a great score if he had not passed on last year. Elliot Goldenthal (Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and Alien 3) may do a decent score, but alot of his scores are hit or miss. I think Marco Beltrami (Blade 2, Hellboy) would be a great composer for this score. But I'm thinking it would also be great to have some heavier type music mixed in. This was done to great effect in both Blade II and The Matrix. I can picture some nice heavy music when Elric draws Stormbringer and goes on a bloodletting spree! LOL! We don't want John Williams, or Howard Shore. We don't want to pull a 2001 and use any classic composer music. Listening to Ride of the Valkyries when Elric hops on a dragon would NOT be a way to go!

      These are only ideas of course. The look of film may suggest other music. But definitely not 'classic' rock! I can't imagine Elric sitting on his throne while the court band is playing rock songs. For the love of anything, we do not want that! I figure the music is gonna make or break this movie.

      So that's about it. eyebone says C-YA!

        Couldn't agree more!

        I'd like to second this. I love Clint's work and think it can be dark, moody, and entrancing, while at the same time hauntingly beautiful. The Kronos Quartet do a good job of bringing modern sensibilities to classical music.

        As for the people who are voting for more of a "rock" edge you can listen to Clint's score on the "PI" soundtrack. You Brits may remember him from the band "Pop Will Eat Itself" back in the late 80s early 90s. He also did a good job of remixing some Trent Reznor stuff for the "DOOM" soundtrack.

          I think the following pieces have a dark quality about them that would be fitting for the Elric movie:

          The last part of this track would be perfect for the teaser IMO:

            As far as rock/metal goes, I can imagine a less dated version of something like this (in the credits):

            http://www.aimelek.com/locker/karma.mp3

            The lyrics certainly fit Elric:

            I am a king of honor
            gold and glory
            but every king must also die
            have I been just and righteous
            what is glory
            I know I've torn and taken life
            and here I stand
            a small and simple man

            Who will trade his karma for my kingdom
            a sacrificial rite to render truth
            the fire in my soul rejects my wisdom
            cause all you do in life comes back to you

            I am a king in crisis
            counting minutes
            there is an ending to my reign
            my sins have come to face me
            I can feel it
            that I have lived my life in vain
            and now I know I'll reap
            the seeds I've sown

            Who will trade his karma for my kingdom
            a sacrificial rite to render truth
            the fire in my soul rejects my wisdom
            cause all you do in life comes back to you

            Am I mad
            I feel so void and cold
            who can tell
            who holds the stories untold
            tired and trembling
            I am descending
            will I have to stay here
            and live this life again

            and here is Stormbringer's theme if ever I heard one:

            http://www.aimelek.com/locker/mephisto.mp3

            You know just who I am
            Don't be so distant
            Cause when you're lost
            I am solely there to share your grief

            Wailing for your sorrow
            Is only my way to comfort you
            Reminders of innocent youth
            Waiting for morrow you're lonely
            I name your solitude
            I speaketh the truth

            Now tell me all about your pain
            Down to the details
            Don't say it's love
            Your fragile heart feeds my contempt

            Wailing for your sorrow
            Is only my way to comfort you
            Reminders of innocent youth
            Waiting for morrow you're lonely
            I name your solitude
            I speaketh the truth

            Chase the heathen call
            We belong... you and I
            Unison in all you deny

            I am the thorn in your side
            That seeks accomplishment
            Reminding the mortal of death
            I am the spore of your pride
            An angel heaven sent
            The master of all
            I am the urge of the flesh

              Listen to Domine - Champion Eternal and then tell me if this works for the movie.
