Revenge Theme Song

revenge-theme-songThe plot of Revenge is very soap opera-like; in my country, it would be likened to that of a telenovela’s. Still, it has the great Madeline Stowe, the gorgeous Emily VanCamp, and a storyline good enough to spark interest and followers, and that want-to-know-what-happens-next style of delivery.

Forget about the opening theme though. The intro and credits reminds me very much of what Lost had—nearly nothing, just a chord that tries so hard to convey a feeling of mystery. But, don’t completely forget about the show’s music in general. There’s a theme there somewhere, and it makes itself known at the end. The end credits theme is actually good, albeit short, and people have already started looking for it.

Unfortunately, there are no commercial releases as of this moment. The music of Revenge—including the ending theme—is credited to a composer who goes by the name of iZLER. Yes, iZLER (pronounced “eye-zler”). iZLER is a Czech-born Englishman. I guess he’s fairly new in the composing/scoring world, although he has already been credited for some noteworthy scores—mostly of documentaries—including that of the 2010 film Repo Men. Here is the only worthwhile page with information about iZLER.

Wait, there’s more! We all know that a show is not just about original music and scoring, there are also a lot of borrowed “real” songs that are played from time to time. This page (from ABC’s official site) lists all of that. Have a look if some song tickled your fancy in any of the two seasons.

Below is the opening and closing theme, combined in a video:
