Horror movie fans and vinyl soundtrack collectors ahoy! On May 13th, Rue Morgue Presents will release BLOOD ON BLACK WAX: HORROR MOVIE SOUNDTRACKS ON VINYL!
This incredible tome spotlights iconic franchises such as A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, FRIGHT THE 13TH, THE EXORCIST, and George A. Romero’s DEAD films, highlighting both the music and the amazing, often rare artwork that graces the record sleeves.
It also tells the stories behind the soundtrack, from the mouths of the musicians who made them, including John Carpenter, Fabio Frizzi, Christopher Young, Harry Manfredini, Charles Bernstein, Pino Donaggio, John Harrison, and more.
Aaron Lupton and Jeff Szpirglas, both of Rue Morgue magazine, have curated BLOOD ON BLACK WAX to reflect their own passion for the darkest slabs of soundtrack music. Their journey into the fascinating history of horror movie scores contains reviews, release details, and wild stories about both renown and unusual releases everything from the orchestral sounds of Hammer and Universal horror, to the truly experimental albums for THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and ERASERHEAD, to the outlandish punk and metal songs of ’80s soundtrack albums like THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD and SHOCKER.
