Queen of the Damned: Music from the Motion Picture is the original motion picture soundtrack to the 2002 vampire horror film Queen of the Damned, which was released on March 1, 2002 through Warner Music Group. The soundtrack was produced by Richard Gibbs and Jonathan Davis of American nu metal band Korn.

History[edit]

The original motion picture soundtrack to the film is Jonathan Davis's first musical output outside of Korn. Originally he was to perform vocals on the soundtrack, but due to contract limitations with Sony, he could not. So, Jeff Scott Soto was hired to do the vocal work but instead five of Jon's friends from other bands were chosen including Wayne Static of Static-X, David Draiman of Disturbed, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson, and Jay Gordon of Orgy.[2] Head and Munky from Korn, Sam Rivers of Limp Bizkit, L. Shankar, Vinnie Colaiuta and Terry Bozzio rounded out the studio musicians.

In the film, the five songs are played by Lestat's heavy metal band, The Vampire Lestat, including "System", "Forsaken", " Not Meant For Me", "Redeemer", and "Slept So Long". In addition to Jonathan Davis's songs, the soundtrack has many songs by other popular bands, such as Static-X, Disturbed and Deftones.

Other songs[edit]

Jonathan Davis tracks[edit]

These tracks are found on the DVD:

  • System - 4:41
  • Slept So Long - 4:21
  • Redeemer - 3:39
  • Forsaken - 4:26
  • Not Meant for Me - 2:42

Unreleased tracks[edit]

  • Careless (Akasha's Lament) - 3:39

This song was omitted from the soundtrack album, however Jonathan released it in mp3 form via Amazon.com & iTunes on November 16, 2007. It was played after a score album medley on the Alone I Play tour. Richard Gibbs has confirmed that there are two other tracks that Jonathan Davis wrote, but it's unlikely that they'll be released.[citation needed]

Aaliyah tracks[edit]

  • What If - 4:24

The late actress and R&B singer Aaliyah, who played Akasha, did not perform on the soundtrack unlike her previous film Romeo Must Die. As Aaliyah only recorded one rock song in her entire career, the alternative metal song "What If" off her last album Aaliyah, she had little material to contribute. The song was recorded during the film's production in Melbourne but did not make the tracklist. Before her death Davis and Aaliyah had planned to record a duet. [3]
