Co-inciding with the UK theatrical release of this French zombie movie, MovieScore Media releases the aggressive and sonically interesting score for The Horde which was written by the very talented Christopher Lennertz (Meet the Spartans, Disaster Movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks) with additional music and co-production by Philip White.

In parts, the score might remind listeners of Lennertz Emmy-nominated work for Supernatural, and the composers came up with a very original palette for the score with many processed samples of instruments such as the duduk and the zourna, distorted Tuvan throat singing and other vocals, looped percussion, cimbalom, santoor, aleatoric orchestral elements and various solo woodwinds.

The result is an intense horror score driven by energy propelled by the directors wanting the music for their film to be “badass”.
