“The visuals are perfectly complemented by David Bateman’s score. Bateman has to create a lot of different moods here and he really rises to the challenge in delivering a score that helps Schulze get across many different emotional and dramatic beats.”
Niall Brown, Movies In Focus | “The Dark Below” film review

“The score from David Bateman has great range from moments of overbearing dread and tension to heart-pounding moments of frantic energy. With no dialogue at all, the music really helps set the mood.”
