[Alexandros] Composes Theme for The Legacy of Doctor Death -BLACK FILE- Movie

Japanese rock band [Alexandros] was chosen to compose the theme song for the upcoming crime thriller The Legacy of Dr. Death – BLACK FILE – (ドクター・デスの遺産-BLACK FILE-).
Inspiration for the song came to vocalist Yoohei Kawakami as he watched the movie for the first time. The resulting song, Beast, is a fast-paced, hard rock song that reflects the excitement, suspense, and drama in the film. A corresponding single containing Beast will be released on November 11th, 2020.
The band has had their music featured in major films before. Earlier this year, [Alexandros] was also chosen to compose the theme music for Gundam: Hathaway’s Flash. In 2019, the group’s heartfelt ballad Pray was used as the theme song for the version of Godzilla: King of the Monsters released in Japan. And Mosquito Bite was used as the main theme for the 2018 BLEACH live-action film.

The Legacy of Dr. Death – BLACK FILE – is based on the award winning novel The Legacy of Dr. Death (ドクター・デスの遺産/Doctor Death no Isan) by Shichiri Nakayama. The adaptation was directed by Yoshihiro Fukagawa.

The movie follows two detectives as they hunt a suspected serial killer. When a series of suspicious deaths prompts an investigation, Detective Hayato Inukai and Detective Asuka Takachiho lead the investigation. The thing the victims have in common? Each was suffering from a terminal illness.

The investigation reveals the existence of a mysterious person called “Dr. Death” who performs euthanasia upon request. The case becomes increasingly more complex as the detectives close in on their suspect. As the line between the police and criminal blurs, several questions remain. Is Dr. Death a serial killer? Or a savior helping patients die without suffering? Are these cold-blooded murders? Or acts of assisted suicide?

The Legacy of Dr. Death -BLACK FILE- is set for release on November 13th, 2020. Get the latest updates on the movie’s web page and Twitter.
