Junkie XL uses drums as his main ingredient and ends up working for the post apocalyptic scenery and relentless action sequences. The softer, more operatic ballad string writing is a nice counter to the harsh percussion. The fierce drumming creates a high level of energy necessary for the film…

“Storm Is Coming”, “Brothers In Arms”, “The Chase”, “Many Mothers”
