Lucio Fulci’s seminal films including Zombie (Zombi 2), City of the Living Dead and The Beyond are heralded as classics by horror fans and critics alike; they inhabit an unsettling, fever dream realm located somewhere between our world and – well – The Beyond. Fulci was able to successfully convey his vision in no small part with the help of composer Fabio Frizzi, with whom he collaborated on over half a dozen projects from the mid-Seventies up to Fulci’s passing in the mid-Nineties. Frizzi’s haunting scores employ an array of ominous sounds, fusing synthesizers with orchestral arrangements and a Latin choir.
Tarantino’s inclusion of Frizzi’s theme from Seven Notes in Black in Kill Bill, Vol 1 and the emergence of bands like Zombi, has brought renewed attention to Frizzi’s music and the maestro has been invited to perform his iconic themes all over the world. With Zombi 2 Beyond Ship To Shore PhonoCo. offers fans a sampling of Frizzi’s standout cuts from Lucio Fulci’s most renowned films, Zombie (Zombi 2) and The Beyond. This 7’’ 45 comes replete with a picture sleeve.
First time the score has been available on any format! Audio pulled from original tapes / remixed / remastered with liner notes by Gus Russo.Stoughton gatefold packaging, full color inner sleeve, DL code and randomly inserted colors.

Waxwork Records is proud to present the Us Original Motion Picture Soundtrack featuring a score by composer Michael Abels. Us, released in March 2019, is an original nightmare written, directed and produced by Academy Award®-winning visionary Jordan Peele (Get Out). Set in present day Santa Cruz on the iconic Northern California coastline, the film, starring Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o and Black Panther’s Winston Duke, pits an ordinary American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
A blockbuster that earned raves from critics and audiences alike, Us earned more than $250 million at the worldwide box office to become one the highest grossing R-rated horror films of all time, buoyed by an unexpected and innovative soundtrack and by a groundbreaking, terrifying original score by Abels.
Us marks the second collaboration between composer Abels and Peele, who first worked together on Peele’s 2017 Oscar-winning horror film, Get Out. For the Us score, Abels explored themes of duality and discord. “Sonically, what defines ‘scary’ is the unfamiliar,” Abels says. “It is the things that we can’t place, and that we don’t expect, that take us to that place of fear. We wanted to really strike terror into the audience.”
Central to the score was the opening track, an anthem for the doppelgängers, known in the film as The Tethered. Abels hit on the idea of using choral elements. “Jordan really loves the sounds of voices, and the human voice is an incredibly expressive instrument that anyone can relate to,” Abels says. “The anthem sounds a little like a march of people preparing for battle, like an uprising maybe, but the sounds are not in a recognizable language. In other parts of the film there are vocal effects, just these strange sounds. They’re designed to really freak people out.”
Abels featured a 30 person choir, a third of them children, in the “Anthem,” and implemented Eastern European instruments, violins, percussion and a virtual instrument called a Propanium drum. “It makes this trashy metal sound, but you can also play melodies on it,” Abels said. “The Propanium drum has a sound that’s both otherworldly but not electronic or like science fiction. It’s a sound you can’t quite put your finger on, which is why it works well in this film.”
Also included on the soundtrack is the 1995 hip-hop hit “I Got 5 On It” by Luniz and the stand-out track “I Like That” by Janelle Monáe. Abels also helped with a new arrangement of the Luniz hit, which is featured on the soundtrack as the ‘Tethered Mix from Us’.

Death Waltz Recording Co., in conjunction with Back Lot Music, is excited to present the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to MA, featuring a terrific synth score by award-winning composer Gregory Tripi.
Tate Taylor’s excellent psychological horror film MA finds Octavia Spencer offering suspicious generosity with some warning signs — a classic tale of what happens when something seems too good to be true. Composer Gregory Tripi’s fantastic, mostly electronic score is laced with the type of ambient beauty, ominous energy, and berserk passages that a story this unhinged requires. He uses analog synths, along with elements such as a live cello, pitched wine glasses and a ukulele, made from a bento box, to craft a score that, like Spencer’s Ma character, lulls you in with a false sense of security before stopping you cold with a deeply crushing sense of terror that hits you at your core.
TRAUMA is the 1993 film by Dario Argento and one of two films he directed in the USA(The other being Two Evil Eyes) it stars Asia Argento and is a typically flamboyant Giallo from Argento featuring his trademark dizzying camerawork and gruesome over the top deaths. The score by Maestro Pino Donaggio (Carrie, Don’t Look Now & Body Double) who delivered a beautiful, nuanced & lush orchestral score which is absolutely outstanding.

Death Waltz Recording Company has taken another step into the infamous genre of flesh-eating monsters in order to bring you a much-requested score from the field of Italian horror – Alexander Blonksteiner’s CANNIBAL APOCALYPSE (aka APOCALYPSEDOMANI). Directed by Antonio Margheriti (YOR, HUNTER FROM THE FUTURE) and starring John Saxon (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET), APOCALYPSE is a nightmarish vision where two Vietnam vets – Saxon and infamous horror actor John Morghen – unleash horror upon the world via a virus that makes the infected want to consume human flesh.
Scoring the film is a soundtrack as intense and crazed as the cannibals themselves, although this may not seem immediately apparent. The opening is a lovely sweeping melody with gentle piano and flute (what is it with cannibal movies and these melodies?) and sets a serene and calm stage for the apocalypse to latch onto. The apocalypse itself scores a nine on the funkometer, with militaristic drums and sinister strings being overtaken by wah-wah funk and guitar noodling in a prog-rock vein. It’s both melodic and dischordant, with harsh alternating synth notes combining with shimmering music box notes, and a love theme with a sax that wails more than your average teenager. If you must chow down on someone, make sure CANNIBALAPOCALYPSE is spinning on your turntable.
We are thrilled to be releasing the score to A Quiet Place in conjunction with our friends over at Milan Records. The film has been one of the breakout hits of 2018. This is only the second directorial feature for John Krasinski and is an absolutely incredibly tense monster movie, that is as original as it is scary.
The score by Marco Beltrami is an absolute tour de force, it’s basically another character in the film, it can be forceful and bludgeoning one minute and quiet and reflective the next. His players twist their instruments to generate tones and textures not usually associated with them, the layers of sound and percussion on display are incredible, the opening track ‘It Hears You’ reminds me of a classic Planet Of The Apes cue it’s disquieting and slightly wonky but has an incredible hook that immediately lets you know you are in horror territory whereas say ‘A Quiet Family’ is a beautiful piano track that reminds you of the life the family lived before a world of monsters took over. Pianos are detuned, Electronics are layered over traditional instruments to create something truly unsettling.
Death Waltz, in association with Lakeshore Records & Netflix, is proud to bring you the score to The Ritual. The Ritual is part of the new wave of folk horror films (The VVitch, into darkness as four friends travel to Sweden to go camping and pay tribute to a fallen friend.As they get deeper into the woods they discover strange symbols etched into trees, a gutted Elk and an empty cabin filled with Ritualistic artifacts. Someone (or something) is in the woods watching over their every move and a quiet creeping dread begins to descend on the party eventually giving way to an all out attack on the sense as the film races toward its inevitable climax.
Ben Lovett’s score (featuring woodwind, strings and the occasional synth) captures the mood of the forest perfectly, It is both tribal and haunting. The score runs a range of emotions; One minute it is reflective and relaxed the next sinister and terrifying. Absolutely essential stuff from one of the most exciting composer working today.
ARROW RECORDS proudly present the original soundtrack to Juan Piquer Simon's gore-drenched slasher from 1982, Pieces.

This vinyl release of the Pieces soundtrack has been newly-mastered from the original 1/4" analogue tapes by James Plotkin and is presented on 180 gram vinyl.
