EDITORS’ NOTES

The second those cascading strings hit in “Theme from the Walking Dead,” fans know what’s coming. The musical world of the show is treacherous, but also full of hope: the echoing glitches and rumbling pulses of “Negan” give a sense of the violence that lies in store, but the calming violins of “Sophia” remind us that there’s pathos and comfort to be found, even in the places that seem most hopeless.

Beautiful Soundtrack for All WD Fans and Fans of Great Soundtracks

Bear McCreary is a famed TV, film, and video game composer who has established his elegant yet bombastic and moving yet modern musical sound for listeners of his soundtracks. He hit the big time as a composer when he began scoring on the Walking Dead, and 8 seasons in he’s still going strong. His soundtrack credits, to name but a few (besides WD) are Black Sails, Outlander, Eureka, Battlestar Galactica (00’s), 10 Cloverfield Lane, Everly, and Constantine.

Premiering all his composed music for the WD series in one album, before Season 8 premieres the “All-Out War” storyline, fans young and older can finally enjoy the music that helped put Mr. McCreary on the musical map. With smaller releases for the WD show in 2012 and 2014 on digital and disc, respectively, six years into the show Bear McCreary finally delivers the WD musical goods all in one place.

It’s safe to say he just may join the A-grade echelon of soundtrack composers that are known as the forerunners of their craft as much as their music, so we’ll just have to wait and see. And listen and rock on, duh...!
