KORN, ROB ZOMBIE, FILTER Members Attend 'Opera'

According to The Pulse of Radio, members of FILTER, KORN, SLIPKNOT, Ozzy Osbourne's band and Rob Zombie's group all perform on the soundtrack of "Repo! The Genetic Opera", a combination of rock opera and horror film that opens on November 7 in selected theatres. Stars Paul Sorvino, Alexa Vega, Paris Hilton, Anthony Head and others all sing their own songs in the film, while the music is provided by a lineup of musicians including FILTER's Richard Patrick, SLIPKNOT percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan, KORN drummer Ray Luzier, OZZY OSBOURNE bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson, ROB ZOMBIE drummer Tommy Clufetos and more. A digital version of the soundtrack will be available through the movie's web site on September 30, with an expanded physical release expected for early 2009.

"Repo!" opens on November 7 and was directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, who has helmed the last three "Saw" movies.

The rock musical takes place in a not-too-distant future where a worldwide epidemic of organ failures has devastated the human race. A biotech company called GENECO corners the market on organ transplants, but sends a repo man to take the organs back if the recipients fail to make their payments.
