Tino Casal

rec

Tino Casal – Eloise

Richard Band – Re-animator Theme

A contemporary yet fully orchestrated version of the classic tune heard during the party scenes and the end credits of Jaume Balaquero’s (REC)3 The Genesis, the weakest but still entertaining chapter in the ongoing REC saga. Hopes are high for episode number 4 which will open in Spain on 10th of October as it will focus on the original Angela Vidal character seen in parts one and two. For the uninitiated: in 2007, a television reporter and a cameraman documenting the daily work of Barcelona fire fighters are trapped inside a gloomy apartment building, facing an outbreak of demonic infestation.

The second track is the Bernardhermannesque theme from a beloved, certified classic.

Death Syndicate

How’d you like it: joyful and brainless disco songs mixed with the short audio scenes as if taken from B movies.

For example, a scene of death while shaving:

Bloody Shaving

Disgustingly, isn’t it? Or the intro with an incident with the tommy-gun:

I’m from Syndicate

It was the most popular cassette compilation in early 80-s in Soviet Union. It came behind the Iron Curtain from somewhere out of East Asia with an unknown soviet sailor. Soon cassette crossed the country from the Far East to western borders and infected every cassette-player on the way.

Fight Is Going On Again

One of main and mightiest soviet propaganda song (1978)  is curiously laid on funky beat and contains heroic “spaghetti-esque” trumpet solo.

Disco Alien

nostromo.jpg A Disco cash-in version of the Jerry Goldsmith‘s original score.
Released the same year as the movie, in 1979.

The long and creepy soundscapes have been removed in favour of plain 4/4 beats. Not memorable but somewhat fun (in a sense).

Amityville

Lalo Schifrin has composed the score of the original movie “The Amityville Horror“. The soundtrack released on Casablanca Records included a disco remake of the theme with a full re-orchestration and the same disturbing voices.

City Of The Dead

Yet other home-made tracks, meant to be ghastly this time. Some kind of a Post Apocalyptic Z Day setting mixed with a John Carpenter-infused soundtrack. I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Zombie!

zombie.jpg

That’s a fact, I’m a Fabio Frizzi (living?) dead fanboy. I’ve already posted about my true fascination towards his work a few months ago, but I couldn’t stop just there. Frizzi has scored Lucio Fulci‘s so-called Living Dead trilogy from A to Z and only one of these three impressive themes has been previously presented in these pages. Now I hope the mistake is properly corrected.

The first track is probably his most famous score and can be heard in the movie Zombi 2 while the second one, which is a variation on the same theme, is used in Paura nella città dei morti viventi.

Fabio Frizzi & Giorgio Tucci – Zombie (1979)

Fabio Frizzi – Apoteosi Del Mistero (1980)

Of course, I could not decently post on the subject without mentioning the splendid tribute produced by Legowelt to one of the greatest masters of the Horror soundtrack genre.

The Ghost That Walks

Dark. Gritty. Abrasive. Grim. Detroit electro on a gloomy night. The Ghost That Walks is all of this… and more. This bloke produces quality music (and he’s a nice guy BTW), highly inspired by both John Carpenter and the old-school electro masters from the D.

The Ghost That Walks – The Machine (2007)

The Ghost That Walks – 7 Deadly Sons (2007)

The Ghost That Walks – Urban Jungle (2007)

He is still unsigned and struggles to get a record deal, what a shame.

Season Of The Witch

A Halloween movie sequel without Michael Myers? It did happen and I’m talking about Halloween III: Season of the Witch here. The movie was… well, below average. But the score was up big time. Thanks to John Carpenter with the help of Alan Howarth.

John Carpenter & Alan Howarth – Goodbye Ellie (1982)

(And it will obviously not be the last ticket devoted to John Carpenter as I am one of his self-confessed zealots)

Voices From Nowhere

Almost exclusively known for his soundtracks for Lucio Fulci’s movies, Fabio Frizzi perfects his art in 1980 for the movie The Beyond. Impressive piece of work, multi-layered (not that rare for a euro-horror movie soundtrack but worth noting) and with a simple but haunting theme.

I always used to think that Frizzi’s scores were out of touch with the pictures from Fulci, but in fact it is for the best: this is an original score and the proof that Frizzi is a great composer.

This is the movie main theme (watch out for the incredible flute),

Fabio Frizzi – Voci Dal Nulla

On a side note, High Contrast – Everything’s Different samples it with great effect
