Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to bring you a classic horror soundtrack fresh from the depths of Hell: Clive Barker's HELLRAISER with music by celebrated genre composer Christopher Young (THE FLY 2, SPIDER-MAN 3, DEF-CON 4). Instead of providing a typical '80s synth score, Christopher Young used a full orchestra to create a symphonic score that was epic is scope. It’s a phenomenal piece of work - huge strings, waltz-like time signatures, and suites that run from the ethereal to downright scary in a matter of moments. We're releasing HELLRAISER in conjunction with Lakeshore Records for its 30th anniversary.
The soundtrack is fully remastered from the original 2-inch master reels by Christopher Young himself, and we have two versions available: a limited edition Mondo exclusive gatefold LP pressed on Gold and Brown vinyl featuring incredible new artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin, as well asa stunning limited edition 7-inch box set featuring the entire LP split across six 7-inch singles, each with an exclusive cover that sits within your very own Lament Configuration box set!
Hellraiser - Original Motion Picture Sountrack 7-Inch Box Set. Six 7” singles, each with a unique cover housed inside a 8" x 8" wooden Lament Configuration box replica with liner notes from Clive Barker. Strictly limited to 1000 copies. Pre-Order expected to ship in November 2017. $80
Metal Slug - Original Video Game Soundtrack. Released on Data Discs. Pressed on 180g Opaque Yellow Or 180g Classic Black. Pre-Order expected to ship Mid-November 2017. $27
The METAL SLUG LP is the culmination of more than a year’s collaborative work between Data Discs and SNK Corporation to develop an exclusive soundtrack release for the Japanese publisher’s most iconic franchise and one of the most beloved shooters of all time.
The vinyl release features the complete music from the first entry in the series (Metal Slug: Super Vehicle-001), composed by Takushi Hiyamuta in 1996. Working together with the SNK Sound Team, the audio was sourced from a NEOGEO development kit in Japan and then carefully mastered at Data Discs’ in-house studio in London. The release is packaged in a gatefold sleeve with accompanying double-sided lithographic insert, featuring rare artwork from the Japanese archives and a special translucent OBI strip with fluorescent Pantone print. A download code for the digital album in both lossy and lossless formats is also included.
