Electric Samurai (The Noble Savage) is a 2004 album by Tomoyasu Hotei. In addition to a few original tracks, the album includes much of Hotei's work for the soundtracks of the films Samurai Fiction and New Battles Without Honor and Humanity (Another Battle). The three versions of "Battle Without Honor or Humanity" included were originally used on the soundtrack of the latter, although the original version was prominently featured in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill.
