Real Heavy Metal, honest and true; there are not many art forms on this earth that exist with such a level of purity. Starting with the giants in the 80's who fathered Heavy, Thrash and Power Metal, there are a select few who continue to purvey the very core of the music that all musicians know and love. USA's THUNDER TRIBE are one of these bands, thrashing out classic Metal in the vein of IRON MAIDEN and DIO. "War Chant" marks the band's debut recording of original material, and what a better way to paint a new picture of the old ways?
La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures present the world premiere release of acclaimed composer Hans Zimmer's (BLACK RAIN, THELMA & LOUISE, THE DARK KNIGHT, MAN OF STEEL) full-throttle original score to the 1990 racing drama feature DAYS OF THUNDER, starring Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman and Robert Duvall, and directed by Tony Scott. After waiting decades, film music enthusiasts have finally been rewarded with a worthy release of this Zimmer classic. Clocking in at over 70 minutes, this CD absolutely roars with the kind of blistering dramatic action scoring that vividly demonstrates how Zimmer became one of filmdom's most important contemporary composers.

Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by Doug Schwartz, this special limited release of 3000 Units was supervised by the film's producer, Jerry Bruckheimer and star Tom Cruise.
