Iron Sky: The Original Soundtrack (We Come in Peace)
About Iron Sky film:
In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers, getting ready for the invasion of Earth!
This is Iron Sky, a fantastic film with an epic soundtrack by Laibach.
With a theatrical trailer viewed by more than four and a half million people on YouTube and an amazing reception from the fans, the film had its successful worldwide premiere at the Berlin Film Festival on the 11 February 2012.
As The Hollywood Reporter noted, “the score by Laibach adds character, mixing pastiche pop with symphonic elements“.
“I was actually sitting in a sauna with our team when one of us, Jarmo Puskala, came up with the idea that we should do a film about Nazis on the Moon. I agreed, and my number one demand was that if so, I want Laibach to do the music“, said Iron Sky’s director Timo Vuorensola about their choice of artist.
“It was a far-fetched idea at the moment, but stuck into my head as a general style guideline not just for music, but for the general approach for the film, and finally, when I heard they would be interested after we contacted them, I was in ecstasy. Their unique sense of humor and nice and twisted approach will really light a spark in the wretched genre of film music. We’re hoping to create something like Vangelis did for Blade Runner – not just a soundtrack, but a whole new world that echoes through the music.”

I was mesmerised by the movie right away from the first stills/teaser available.
But having Laibach contribute the soundtrack (the Musik!) is the most ingenious idea in film history! Without it, Iron Sky would only be half as good:
Well done, Laibach!!!

A movie soundtrack must convey the feeling, spirit and atmosphere of a movie, Laibach's soundtrack fro Iron Sky achieves much more, it is perfectly aligned to the movie. The arrangements of Wagner are truly superb and warrent an album of their own. The track 'Take me To Heaven' is stunning and my partner and I have already adopted it as 'Our Tune'! This was my first introduction to Laibach and I am hooked straight away. The inclusion of the Volk badge is a great touch. Rarley are soundtracks so perfect for a movie but I do feel this one is and already the CD has been played over 100 times.
