RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Guitarist On 'Pacific Rim' Soundtrack

According to The Pulse Of Radio, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello has teamed up with "Game Of Thrones" composer Ramin Djawadi to contribute to the score of "Pacific Rim", the upcoming sci-fi film about giant pilot-controlled robots battling colossal monsters invading Earth from another dimension. Morello told Rolling Stone, "When they asked me to put some giant robot riffs and screaming underwater monster licks on the film score, I was all in." The soundtrack to the movie arrived in stores on Tuesday (June 25) with the film hitting theaters on July 12.

The film, from "Hellboy" director Guillermo Del Toro, stars Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman from "Sons Of Anarchy" and Charlie Day from "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia".

Djawadi said, "Guillermo and I were discussing adding a rock element to the score and Tom's unique style and sounds really defined our robots."

Morello has played on a number of soundtracks, including "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby", "Dodgeball", "Spider-Man", "Iron Man", "Iron Man 2" and "The A-Team".

He has appeared onscreen in small roles in "Iron Man", "Star Trek: Insurrection" and "Made".
