Mondo publishes Skelattack vinyl soundtrack by Jamal Green

UK-based film and game composer Jamal Green wrote the soundtrack for Skelattack in 2020. The composer's contributions to games include the scores for Photon Highway, Poly Mole, Equilinox and TOEM.

A charming, challenging 2D platformer by Californian developer Ukuza and published by Konami, Skelattack casts the player in the role of Skully, a skeleton that lives in the post-life town of Aftervale. With his bat-friend Imber in toe, Skully is tasked with rescuing Aftervale's elder skeleton Elzedon and defending the Blue Flame, emanating the magic that kindles the spirits of the dead.

With a musical approach inspired by Danny Elfman's score for Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, the double vinyl soundtrack album sports cover art by JJ Harrison. The two-disc analog record release ships from publisher Mondo in Austin, and through distributors Light in the Attic in Seattle, Black Screen Records in Germany, and PixelCrib in Australia.

The 22-track digital soundtrack album is streaming on subscription-based services Spotify and Apple Music. Skelattack is currently available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows through Steam.

From the product page:
On creating the game’s unique soundscape, Jamal comments, “As soon as I saw Skelattack, I Instinctively knew what sound palette I needed to create the score. Inspired by Danny Elfman’s fantastic score for The Nightmare Before Christmas, I could instantly imagine the woody tones of marimbas, woodblocks and shakers to remind the audience of the hollow rattling of bones and the scraping of peculiarly pitched ribs…The music I wrote towards the end of Skelattack’s development is a lot “broader” and much more filmic and I think that gives the soundtrack a lot to offer. Skelattack has an amazing narrative and I think the music (and its creation) follows the same arch – From humble beginnings to a grand, climactic conclusion and a lot of character development along the way!”
