FRESH BLOOD!

Fair enough you think - but they've also asked the singer from Linkin Park...

Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park frontman CHESTER BENNINGTON and WAYNE STATIC of STATIC X are amongst the acts set to voice the character of LESTAT the vampire in a new film, ‘QUEEN OF THE DAMNED’.

The original tracks are written by Korn‘s Jonathon Davis and soundtrack composer Richard Gibbs, while other music used comes from Papa Roach, Deftones, Tricky, Disturbed, Static-X, Godhead, Earshot, Kidney Thieves and Dry Cell.

‘Queen Of The Damned’ sees Lestat, played by Stuart Townsend, rise from centuries asleep and attempt to be a rock star. The film also stars the late Aaliyah as Queen Akasha, the mother of all vampires. She is awaken from her crypt underneath the arctic ice by Lestat’s music. The film is based on the ‘Vampire Chronicles’ by Ann Rice which had previously spawned ‘Interview With The Vampire’, starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.

The film opens in the coming weeks. The soundtrack is released on March 11 through Warner Brothers.
