For those who do not know the movie (which isn't strange at all) here's a brief summary written by Claudio Carvalho (some Brazillian dude who wrote it on the imdb site).
In the future, in a polluted post-apocalyptic society called Eurasia after a war against Europe, the planet is devastated by the effect of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. The geneticist Dr. Azuma (Akira Terao) develops a technique called "neo-cell", capable of regenerating the body of human beings, sponsored by an evil corporation. His son Tetsuya Azuma (Yusuke Iseya) dies in the war, but after an accident in the laboratory of Dr. Azuma, Tetsuya revives as the powerful warrior Casshern, while a new breed of mutants called "neo-humans" is generated in the plant. The neo-humans decide to annihilate the humans and raise a new world.
It's an Japanese movie in a sort of anime-reality mix. Either you like it or you hate it. I thought the movie was very cool, although some dramatic parts were a bit long. But I'm not here to write a movie review, so on to the music!
The OST excists out of 2 cd's. The first cd consists of 'normal' tracks and the other is an 100% instrumental soundtrack.
WIP...I wanted to post it last week, but the cd's were at my parents' house...So coming soon (probably this week).
