For die-hard fans, a limited run of only 165 Crimson Rain colored vinyl copies are now available exclusively from Spacelab9’s official website while supplies last. ‘The Raid 2’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack CD version was released earlier this year, packaged in a deluxe mini-gatefold jacket with a bonus twelve-panel, two-sided full color poster.
Composer Joseph Trapanese (The Raid: Redemption, Oblivion, Tron: Uprising) returns along with Aria Prayogi and Fajar Yuskemal to provide a score equal parts electronic and orchestral, deeply layered and breathtaking, all while perfectly complimenting the frenetic on-screen action of ‘The Raid 2’. The 24-track album features original motion picture score with over an hour of music, plus the original song ‘Hush’ written and performed by Indonesian jazz artist Arti Dewi.
Written and directed by Gareth Evans, ‘The Raid 2’ picks up right where the first film left off and follows Rama (Iko Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force. THE RAID 2 was produced by Ario Sagantoro for Merantau Films, and Aram Tertzakian and Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films. The film was executive produced by Rangga Maya Barack-Evans for Merantau Films, Irwan D. Mussry, Nick Spicer and Todd Brown on behalf of XYZ. Matt Flannery (The Raid: Redemption) and Dimas Imam Subhono served as cinematographers with Joseph Trapanese (The Bourne Legacy), Aria Prayogi (The Raid: Redemption) and Fajar Yuskemal (The Raid: Redemption) scoring the picture.
