Preview the original score from the movie The Raid: Redemption.

One of the articles I saw about the new Indonesian movie The Raid: Redemption has the headline “THE RAID Punches Indonesia’s Box Office in the Face”. The score for this movie is half the fun and just as likely to punch you in the face then give you a few jabs in the torso as you fall to the ground. The brutal action film has some crazy choreographed fight scenes accompanied with a score composed by Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and Joseph Trapanese. The movie is slowly rolling out in theaters around the US (the unnecessary subtitle was given for our market) but the soundtrack is available for streaming now and can be purchased at the official site (the only place for the CD version it says). The music is heavy on synthesizers and percussion may not win any awards but it will get your blood rising.
