QUEEN OF THE DAMNED's second soundtrack release, The Score Album. There are two totally different soundtrack releases for Queen of the Damned. As fans know from previous ramblings on our site, Stuart Townsend is also a capable musician. Warner Bros. were happy for him to write and record some songs for this movie and/or soundtrack of QUEEN OF THE DAMNED which he did. Not sure where they are however, the Score Album CD release does have a number of tracks penned by Korn's Jonathan Davis who had to recruit another voice for the singing parts due to his contractual obligations. He selected Jeff Scott Soto who wrote some of the original rock music for the film "Rock Star". Composer Richard Gibbs was the other contributor to this QOTD album whom has previously scored films such as Shakespear's "Taming of the shrew" revisited as "10 Things i Hate About You" as well as "28 Days" amongst others.
