Deftones’ Chino Moreno Collaborates With Bassnectar On “Hexes”, Audio Available
As part of his recent score for the upcoming “Resident Evil: Retribution 3D” movie (opening this Friday, September 14th), so-called metalstep artist Bassnectar teamed up with Deftones/Crosses/Palms, etc. frontman Chino Moreno. The pair collaborated on a song titled “Hexes“, which will run during the end credits of the film.
Bassnectar sharing the following on the collab, which you can hear below:
“For those of you out there who enjoy the dark side of music, here’s my “Hexes” track for the new “Resident Evil: Retribution” movie, made with one of my favorite singers alive, Chino Moreno [big ups Chino]!!
I was thrilled to be a part of scoring this, and wanted to make a beat that dropped like a wall of bricks to knock people back in their seats at the movie’s sudden and dramatic end. Chino put together the lyrics in a poem that felt like a slow motion dream, and somehow the two sensations works in tandem: falling backwards in a dream while getting blown back by a wobbling wall of sound.”
The song is also now available for purchase through iTunes. Interestingly the track isn’t Moreno‘s only end-credits collaboration as of late. He also teamed up with Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and Joe Trepanese for “Razors Out“, which played during the credits of “The Raid: Redemption“.
