Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors

It was in 1993, on the back of the success of the original Mortal Kombat, that two Belgian electronica artists set about creating a dance anthem inspired by the game. Techno Syndrome, in it's varied mixes, has gone on to be one of the most memorable novelty songs of it's time, popularized through use in the 1995 Mortal Kombat feature film [coming to BluRay in April], as well as television marketing for home console release of the games prior to the movie, and pop culture references following. It was even included as bonus material in Sega CD releases of the game.

Oliver Adams and Maurice Engelen (Praga Khan) -- who were well known at the time for their work as part of the Industrial Techno collective, Lords of Acid -- were tapped by Virgin Records America to produce a complete concept album as soundtrack to the game as The Immortals.

Mortal Kombat: The Album was released subsequently in 1994, featuring ten original tracks inspired by the game and it's seven playable characters. Shang Tsung was notably the only character to go without a song; the rest of the cast, (including famous sub-boss, Goro), benefitting from high energy dance tracks, with descriptive titles and lyrics based on characters' biographies. Original tracks, Techno Syndrome and Hypnotic House, even boast soundbytes from the Sega version of the game, said to have been provided for the album.

In 2011, Warner Brothers' WaterTower Music will team with Teenage Riot Records to continue this MK musical tradition, producing a soundtrack for a new generation and a new game -- Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors!

Liu Kang's ThemeMileena's ThemeSub-Zero's Theme

Executive produced by Teenage Riot co-founder, JFK (of MSTRKRFT); the album is set to provide a contemporary take on the soundtrack concept, providing a more subtle source of inspiration in the mix, drawing from various styles to deliver an album of tracks "Inspired by the Warriors".

A complete tracklisting is yet to be made available, but music from the album has already been featured in character vignettes for Mileena, and most recently, Liu Kang. These singles, performed by Tokimonsta and Congorock, have been made avaialble for pre-release download on Amazon ($0.99) and iTunes ($1.29), along with Sub-Zero's theme.

Update: WaterTower Music have issued a press release for the new singles, confirming an album release date April 5. No additional information is provided concerning the complete tracklist.

WaterTower Music and Teenage Riot Records are excited to announce the upcoming album Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors. Set for release this spring, this all-new collection of music is executive produced by JFK (of the innovative DJ/production duo MSTRKRFT and Death From Above 1979) and is made up of songs inspired by the iconic warriors from the acclaimed fighting game Mortal Kombat. JFK has hand selected songs by some of electronic music’s most resonant names, and the resulting compilation plays as a cohesive album that adds an engaging element to the latest edition of the iconic video game.

Mortal Kombat Online will endeavor to bring you more details about the album, set for release in April, as information becomes available. Keep abreast of all the latest news and stories by following us on Twitter @MK_Online!

It's a shame that none of the KE's came with that OST. I would have rather had that CD than the statue.

Awesome article, Mick!

I can't wait for this album and I can't believe I'm actually typing that. It feels like I'm going back to 1992 when those original warrior songs were released in MK's very own soundtrack.

Wicked.

I've yet to listen to Sub-Zero's, but, judging by the good quality of Mileena's and Liu's, I expect something really good.

Oh, you guys just have to check this out:

I think Mileena's is the only good one.
It sounds like her. Sinister.

I don't know how Sub-Zero = whatever that is?

LOL..."Helado" means ice cream in Spanish. Maybe that's what they were going for (humor), but if they wanted to say "sub-zero" it should have been "bajo cero."


And nothing will beat (for getting "stuck the in head's sake") "Ohhhhhh, Chinese ninja warrior, with your heart so cold...Sub-Zerooooo. Ohhhh, your life is a mystery, why do you wear that mask. Sub-Zerooooo."

Well, "Helado" also means "cold" or "freezing" and it's used to refer to something as a cold:

Esta helado afuera = It's cold outside.

As I posted on the "not official thread":

I heard some blizzard sound on the subby sample, anyone heard the 7 minutes of the song? Maybe at some point it breaks an is really cool... you have 7 minutes of song to at least make some part matching (and as I said, I think they added blizzard sound effects).

About the name, as Queve said, it's not ice cream but clod or frozen. Maybe Congelado could have been a better election in order to avoid the ice cream misinterpretation.

OMG I love you for posting this video haha and I concur


In relation to the Soundtrack, very excited, this will probably be the first album I've bought in ages since that Mase CD in 2001 haha. I haven't heard much of them, but I love Liu Kang's and Mileena's so far.

I like these alot more than I normally would expect myself to. I usually don't take to the actual album material. I've always preferred the in-game music. The games' main themes, certain arenas, definitely the Konquest modes, and of course the Krypts music are usually more interesting to me.

This is good though.

Be sure to note the update to the story concerning release date.
Unfortunately, the press release only reiterates the details MKO already reported in this story, and in the original Mileena post, last month.

Does Sub-Zero's track get better? It's not too impressive based on the preview...

Those tracks aren't bad, but it's disappointing that they've dropped the goofball vibe of the old Immortals songs.

RE: Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors

Sub-Zero's theme doesn't pair well with him in my opinion.

Liu Kang's theme is fitting! And Mileena's of course is great.

More than anything I wanna hear the themes for Kitana, Jade,
& Sindel. But my guess is they aren't gonna pre-release any
more themes other than Scorpion and perhaps Johnny Cage.
