The member of Zombi continues to emerge as a first-rate film score composer, this time for the new horror flick Cub.
Best known as one half of Pittsburgh space rock duo Zombi, Steve Moore has taken his musical influences -- namely John Carpenter, Goblin, Giorgio Moroder, and Klaus Schulze -- and parlayed it into what's becoming a very impressive second career as film score composer. After turning heads with his incredible soundtrack work for the excellent thriller The Guest, he's now provided the score for the Belgian horror film Cub.
Described as a tale of young Cub Scouts being pursued in the woods by a deranged pacher, Moore conveys the tension brilliantly on the soundtrack album, which will be released by Relapse on 16 October. Fans of Zombi, horror film scores, and classic krautrock will love it, and can listen to the climactic track "Sam vs Kai" below.
"This cue connects three scenes in which, hopefully you can guess, very bad things happen," Moore tells PopMatters. "Without giving anything away, the last section is a pivotal moment in the film and I think one of the most intense parts of the score."
