Heavy Metal Soundtrack (1981) [Full Album] Various Artists + Original Score by Elmer Bernstein

/> Heavy Metal is a 1981 Canadian-American adult animated anthology science fiction fantasy film directed by Gerald Potterton and produced by Ivan Reitman and Leonard Mogel, who also was the publisher of Heavy Metal magazine, the basis for the film. The screenplay was written by Daniel Goldberg and Len Blum. The film was the sixth animated feature film to be presented in Dolby surround sound. The film is an anthology of various science fiction and fantasy stories adapted from Heavy Metal magazine and original stories in the same spirit. Like the magazine, the film features a great deal of graphic violence, sexuality, and nudity. Its production was expedited by having several animation houses working simultaneously on different segments, including CinéGroupe and Atkinson Film-Arts.

Back in the days of cassette tapes, you couldn't just hit "next" to skip a song. You had to fast forward, which ate time. Precious time that would otherwise be spent rocking out while driving around aimlessly. Therefore, the Heavy Metal Soundtrack cassette had one terrible flaw: the second track, side B, Open Arms by Journey. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Journey, but that's not the right song for an otherwise rocking compilation (true, Blue Lamp was similarly lame, however, as that was the last song on the cassette, it was easier to just hit eject and move on than bother with fast forward). My friend and I had a solution; it wasn't perfect, but it got us through. Whenever Open Arms came on, we goofed the lyrics. Goofed them most pornographically, singing as loud as possible to drown out the erstwhile Steve Perry. Obviously we referred to the song as Open Legs and by the end we wouldn't even bother with rhyme or structure, we'd just spew enough filth to make Andrew Dice Clay run for church. I confess, I still do that when I hear Open Arms. But only in my head. My poor, sick head. https://murderofgracula.blogspot.com/2017/07/gone-songs-track-eight-heavy-metal.html

this movie is in my top 10 movies of all time!! reminds me of being 13-14yrs of age going to see it at the local movie theatre, the people that owned it, a ma and pa place, were cool, they didnt care if teens hangin out would pay to see the r rated movies, so they let us in, great times, hangin out with girlfriends, making out in the r rated movies, playing pinball, space invaders, galaga, pacman,,,,,,, i wish i could go back to that time, best time in my life.
Chris Perrin
single greatest soundtrack of all time
Check mate King Two This is White Rook over
Stern, He's nothing but a low-down, double-dealing, backstabbing, larcenous perverted worm! Hanging's too good for him. Burning's too good for him! He should be torn into little bitsy pieces and buried alive!

Fifteen and this was the Most profound thing ever, still enjoy the music and movie to this day.
william tilghman
This was the life in '81. just graduated high school, a group of us went to see this opening weekend and about every other week to just enjoy the music, laugh at the movie and then go out and party. or sometimes party and then went to see the movie, either way, it was classic. I really am glad the next generation has seen this, especially after the crap of release rights that held it up for 15 years while we waited for VHS, and now DVD. This is the music of my soul, thanks for memories.
The BEST movie EVER....RIP JC hopefully you are Den...
From truth and other lies
Oh wow, i own the soundtrack...but it was always the original score what i wanted. Thank you man for that great upload <3

i’m here because of the Falcon Heavy launch. thanks Elon Musk.
I was a Blue Oyster Cult fan so when they ended up on the soundtrack, I was ecstatic! Then BOC goes all Micheal Morecock and Elric and Stormbringer Black Blade and Veteran of the Psychic Wars; It was so awesome.

Railway Hobo
Omg this film had these bands make songs for this wow
Recently come across this movie (asking myself why i havent seen it earlier!) and now got the soundtrack, love it all!
This is on netflix. I have always shown this movie to my friends, to see what they thought and how they liked it. Seems since my drug abusing days fell behind me, so did my peers' appreciation for this movie and its music. Maybe theres a connection? OR MAYBE THE PEOPLE I HANG OUT WITH NOW ARE ALL LAME AF.

Trust-prefab...never heard before, they rock, my fav on the soundtrack.

Loved this movie I'll have to get a DVD or something...😎
I played this while Falcon Heavy took it historic Journey into Space!!!!
gracias por compilarlo
It’s all about old school metal. When the music was still listenable, with harmony and melody. The problem with metal music now is there’s too many death metal bands that try way too hard, it’s comical. There’s not enough bands like Black Sabbath.
Gary Mitchell
had he album...made the best weed roller & shaker ever...4 finger lid
Jeremy Feit
This is awesome. But still, I took it one step further when I recorded both the rock and orchestra lps, and replaced the version here of Black Sabbath's The Mob Rules with the one from their album The Mob Rules (which exactly matches the movie, which the HM score doesn't), including the instrumental piece leading up to it. Also I recorded Through Being Cool off of Devo's LP, which isn't on the rock score either.
Bruno BRF3
Fullmetal night all listened Detected !!!!!!
Robert Lee
LOVE IT! Doing my 70's shuffle à la Billy Idol. Dancin' with myself.
There was a midnight showing of this last night at the Coolidge Corner Cinema in Boston/Brookline MA. It was on original 35 mm film and you can see the grains and worn spots in some of the cells of the film. It was literally pulled out of the vault. I haven't seen this movie on the big cinema screen since it was originally released in 1981 when I was about to turn 9. Now I am 44 and still love this film
Heather Hill
This so rocks again thank you 🙏 so very very much I had this album

It really freaks them out for some reason, well... That and the smell of Jack Daniel's on my breath - but i cant cut unless I am in my GROOVE!

I was 13 in Early Texas, Walking across a trailer park going to Allsups convenience store with a fried that had a boom box. He played this and I was an instant metalhead. Will remember that forever.
Around 2010, my dad introduced me to this movie. I was ten years old and didn't really care for it. I wasn't really into sci-fi, fantasy or sword and sorcery. I really wasn't interested in heavy metal. Over the years I got into heavy music (metallica, venom, motorhead) and then started playing ad&d. Now at the age of 18, I've completely changed. Sci-fi and fantasy are two of my favorite genres and heavy metal is my jam. I can only say I wish I took an interest in this sort of stuff before. And this movie is fucking radical. Truly a classic. Jesus I've wrote a lot, I guess I have trouble cutting these comments down...
David Koch
Thanks for the memories! They just do not make them like this anymore. This was some of the best of it's time, maybe all time!

Wonderful memories from my teens. Thirty years later, I still remember the 'horror' and regularly tease my younger sister for recording over the movie with 'The Princess Bride'. Need I say more....
Bill Gillen
I was 20 years old when this came out and I seen it the first night and went back 10 times to watch it. I bought the album when it came it and wore it out. I make it a point to watch it every year. I have owned the DVD when it was released. It always makes me smile.
A Cult Classic Movie, A Perfect Soundtrack.
I was 10 when this came out. I was already addicted to hard rock/heavy metal at the time. My buddy Steve(R.I.P.) turned me onto it when I was around 8 or so. My mom would drop us off at the local mall so we could go see a movie and walk around. We had the money to get in, but since it was rated-R, we decided to sneak in the back door. Man, this movie was the coolest thing I had ever seen up til then. It was just so huge. I can't describe the excitement that movie instilled in me. "with my dork hanging out" was repeated by me and friends so many times, lol. Yeah, man....the 80's rocked. I am so glad I grew up in that decade. I've never had better times or made better friends since.

My favorite album from my youth thank you 🙏
Mark McNary
Strange animated movie, but great soundtrack even with the orchestral score, which i liked, along with the rock music part of the soundtrack.
Kevin Morrissey
I think i won the album on a local radio station not it was kinda like those best rock albums of differnt bands of times when you aren't sure if these were the real performers or some imposter band or to cheap to buy all the music. I saw cheap trick they were loud maybe the feildhouse was small back then ..boc is good show
Fred Sanford
Desperate but not serious
Awesome movie, one of my fave animated movies and sci-fi and fantasy films and comic book movies for 25 years! i was 11 years old when i saw this on Cinemax thanks to looking at an albuquerque TV guide showing week of movies in the paper and watched it with Hey Good Looking, American Pop and Vampire Hunter D and became faves. I even bought this soundtrack on CD when i was 14 with the movie on VHS and bought the DVD after my 2000 graduation and have it on blu-ray. I also love the score by Bernstein. This movie is very influential with the comic magazine and inspired things like Fifth Element and without HM and other adult animation there be no Simpsons, Spawn TAS, Bojack Horseman and more. I even had a crush on Taarna when i was a kid and a teen and one of my top 20 animated babes. For anyone who liked the movie, check out American Pop, Fire and Ice, Hey Good Looking, Wizards, Fritz the Cat, Watership Down, Dark Knight Returns, Batman Under the Red Hood, South Park Bigger Longer and Uncut, Akira, Ninja Scroll, Waltz with Bashir, Fantastic Planet, Gandahar aka Lightyears, Wicked CIty, Rock and Rule, Cowboy Bebop the movie, I married a Strange Person, Golgo 13 The Professional, Futurama movies, Felidae, Princess Mononoke etc. which are other neat adult animated movies.
not sure how i feel about this movie but this soundtrack goes hard
Frank Landry
good old metal tunes
Angel whispers
I was 12 ...and loved it ..watched it over and over 1982
David Hansen
Do wish rock could rise again
marc black
The first song is what Elion Must should of been playing when he sent out his rocket man into outer-space; fits in well with the opening scene of the movie, same car, same astronaut.. Lets see what this sucker finds in the great beyond.
Every song I hear on this I can see the movie in my head. Man it's like taking LSD without actually having to take it......anymore!
