Cruising the Old 66 is the third “single” from Warlands - The Soundtrack (Bailey Records / April 21, 2009).
In the game Warlands the Blackwood Mercenaries patrol old Route 66 – now referred to as the Devil’s Backbone – to keep it clear for supply runs and clear of raiders, mutants, zombies, and whatever else the Warlands have to offer. In a series of short stories written by :st="on">Bryan “Stratos” Borgman and published in Aberrant’s Data Dump, the main character named Hunter Ortega begins his quest on the zombie-filled streets of Chicago before following the old 66 deep into the Warlands of the former USA.
While composing the music for Warlands - The Soundtrack, I've taken cue from a plethora of post-apocalyptic movies such as Death Race, Doomsday, Escape from :st="on"> :st="on">New York, Terminator, and many more. Cruising the Old 66 once again features Trevor Peters on the talk box (as on “Snakes on the Playground”) and gives a nod to some of the jangly rock of yesteryear. Toss in some rockin' and thrashin' guitars along with some zombies and you have the desolate setting of Warlands.
