Milan Records: "SKELATTACK" music by Jamal Green


Milan Records announces the June 5 release of SKELATTACK (ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK) with music by composer, musician and producer JAMAL GREEN.  Available everywhere Friday, June 5, the album features music composed by Green for Konami Digital Entertainment’s newest indie game, in which players explore a vast subterranean world as Skully, working to protect the dungeon’s riches whilst unlocking its epic story.

“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,” says composer JAMAL GREEN of the soundtrack, adding, “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!”

Now available for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC/Steam, Skelattack delivers a visually-stunning, 2D action-platformer where players will jump, slash, and battle through the Underworld, tackling various platforming obstacles and puzzles along the way. The game showcases six unique environments filled with deadly charming art style and colorful, hand-drawn environments and characters.

Skelattack turns the platforming hero stereotype on its head by putting players in the shoes of Skully, a skeleton fighting to protect his home. As a member of the newly deceased and just getting the hang of being dead, Skully’s newfound home and friends are attacked by humans. Instead of seeking gold or other treasure, the humans kidnap Aftervale's elder skeleton, Elzedon, and attempt to steal the magic that kindles the spirits of the dead - the Blue Flame. Together with Imber, Skully’s trusty bat friend, players will control both characters through the Underworld in an attempt to stop the human threat, save the Elder, and protect the Blue Flame.

Jamal Green is a composer, musician and producer with an incredibly distinct and versatile voice which he has crafted over many film and game projects.  Whether nurturing an ecosystem in the indie game sensation Equilinox or brought to tears by the final scenes of the feature film Aberdeen you will find Jamal’s scores breathing life into incredible characters and stories.

A lover of all genres and sounds, Jamal always experiments with unique and interesting sound palettes to suit the projects he works on. World music elements (Particularly African and Indian music) can be found in a lot of his music which gives it an unequivocal flair.  This, combined with his passion for creating cinematic and symphonic music as well as his frequent use of electronic elements is why he has become a greatly coveted composer for animation, games, film and TV.
