All driller, no filler:

Percussion-heavy soundtrack to the insane cyber-nightmare movie Tetsuo The Iron Man and the rather tame (in comparison) sequel. Lots of klang-klang and bang-bang...but in a synthesized sort of way. Certainly doesn't come close to matching the feel of the movies, in my opinion, but an interesting audio treat for fans of the films and the works of Chu Ishikawa.

Awesome! The original Tetsuo is one of my favorite works of extreme cinema, and I've always wanted to check out the soundtrack.

Just one problem: The zip download seems to only have the music from Tetsuo 2. When I unzip it, it creates a folder named "TETSUO 1" with a second folder nested inside called "2", which contains 8 mp3s tracks. None of them sound like the music from Tetsuo 1, although I could be wrong.

I think maybe the backslash in the folder name "TETSUO 1/2" fooled your zip utility into making another directory and screwed up the files. If you stick an ampersand or plus sign between the 1 and 2 in the filename, it should fix the problem.

Please repost!

Jim, there are only 8 tracks on this Cd. So i think you've got the whole album in the initial download.

Tracks 1, 4, 5 are from "Tetsuo The Iron Man". Tracks 2, 3, 6, 7, 8 are from "Tetsuo II/The Body Hammer."

Hope this helps

Thanks for clearing things up, Jay. I guess I'll have to go back and listen more closely. Keep up the good work!
