BADABADABAP! Caprica, Blood & Chrome Soundtracks coming soon

La-La Land Records will be releasing soundtrack albums for both Caprica (the series) and Blood and Chrome in the next two months.

The press release from Bear McCreary's website/Facebook page:

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on March 12th
Caprica: Original Television Soundtrack in April
(February 5, 2013 – Burbank, CA) La-La Land Records announces the release of two new soundtracks Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome on March 12th and Caprica: Original Television Soundtrack in April. Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica) composed the music for both series.
“In scoring the Battlestar Galactica prequels Caprica and Blood & Chrome, I returned to the unique combination of world and orchestral sounds that defined my previous score,” McCreary described. “But, both prequels had their own distinct approach. Caprica was interlaced with delicate chamber orchestra textures, solo harp and other-worldly source songs. Blood & Chrome is energized by heavy distorted-synthesizers and searing electric guitar performances. Listeners will hear, however, that all three series have a common musical DNA.”
Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome (a prequel to the critically acclaimed hit series, Battlestar Galactica) takes place in the midst of the First Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton). With only 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine escort mission with an enigmatic passenger (Lili Bordan) turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.
Blood & Chrome is the second prequel from the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series. The first was Caprica, which aired from 2009-2010. Though it only lasted one season, the series and its music cultivated their own loyal following.
“The Caprica series soundtrack was made possible by the tireless enthusiasm of the series’ passionate fans,” said McCreary. “After countless Tweets, Facebook posts, emails, questions and rants, fans made it clear they wanted to experience this music in album format. I am thrilled to collaborate once again with La-La Land Records to release more music from the Battlestar Galactica universe.”
Bear McCreary’s unique combination of atypical instrumental background (he is a professional accordionist) with rigorous classical training prepared him to compose for disparate genres. By the age of 24, McCreary was launched into pop culture history with his groundbreaking score to SyFy’s hit series Battlestar Galactica, for which he composed “the most innovative music on TV today” (Variety). It “fits the action so perfectly, it’s almost devastating: a sci-fi score like no other” (NPR). declared Bear McCreary one of the Ten Best Science Fiction Composers of all time, listing him alongside legends John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith and Bernard Herrmann.
McCreary continues to write for the television show The Walking Dead. In 2013 he will lend his talents to SyFy and Trion World’s groundbreaking entertainment experience, Defiance, a combined launch of a MMO videogame and television series as well as Da Vinci’s Demons, a bold new historical fantasy series from David S. Goyer (co-writer of The Dark Knight trilogy) for STARZ. His upcoming film projects include Europa Report and Knights of Badassdom. His other credits include critically acclaimed scores for series such as Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Eureka and The Cape. His swashbuckling score for Human Target featured the largest orchestra ever assembled in the history of series television and earned him his first Emmy nomination. His videogame credits include SOCOM 4 and Dark Void.
Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, can be watched as twelve 10-minute webisodes on and will air as a two-hour movie on Syfy on February 10, 2013. The DVD, BluRay, and digital download will be released on February 19, 2013.
La-La Land Records presents Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome (limited edition 3000 units) available at and other soundtrack boutique retailers on March 12, 2013. Also available are the soundtracks for Battlestar Galactica: Season 1, Season 2, Season 3, Season 4, The Plan/Razor, and Caprica: Original Soundtrack from the Pilot Episode.
Additionally, La-La Land will be offering all the previous BSG releases, including the soundtracks from the BSG miniseries, Seasons 1-4, Razor/The Plan, and the Caprica pilot soundtrack for $9.98 each, according to their Facebook page:

In celebration of our forthcoming, limited edition release of Bear McCreary's score to BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: BLOOD & CHROME on 3/12, we are now offering all of our GALACTICA titles, BSG MINI-SERIES, BSG SEASONS 1-4, BSG THE PLAN/RAZOR and CAPRICA at the otherworldly sale price of only $9.98 each. For a limited time, only at So say we all!
I for one am absolutely thrilled! Is it March 12 yet?

Terrific news. Bear McCreary's music is easily the best part of Caprica. I've enjoyed listening to the pilot score, and would be happy to hear more.

I never really watched Caprica enough to catch his music; was it as memorable as it was on BSG?

^ He's got talent, that's for sure. I loved "The Differently Sentient" that played over the coda.

I have only watched BG, but I love the music. Especially Bear and his brother's rendition of "All Along The Watchtower."

I'm always excited for more of Bear McCreary's music! I liked his stuff from B&C and I really love his work from season 1 of Caprica. I was convinced we'd never get a proper soundtrack release of it, so I am thrilled by this news!

Most of it was, some of it is one on the same level as the best BSG songs such as the music played over the final scene and mid-season finale music. He also made source music for different cultures that existed in the Colonies, one of them being a rap from Tauron.
I have existed since the first post on the board and I shall exist until the last thread is deleted from the server. Although I have taken the form of Awesome Possum, I am all posters as I am no poster and therefore I am a Mod.

Pretty sure my order just went through, but the site crashed after I got the order confirm. If you want the Blood and Chrome CD, now's the time to order it!
