Hi Everyone! This week we are thrilled to be continuing our official partnership with AMS & Cinevox of Italy to release a 2-disc set of Dario Argento and Goblin’s all-time classic PROFONDO ROSSO (aka DEEP RED). This double LP includes the original soundtrack on Disc 1, with an exclusive bonus disc featuring alternate takes appearing for the first time on vinyl. The album features artwork by Randy Ortiz, who is just knocking it out the park with this on-going Argento series.
In case you missed it, we released the incredible soundtrack to MARVEL'S LUKE CAGE - Season Two on Friday. We also have a new Distributed Title from our friends at Burning Witches Records in the shape of the latest Deadly Avenger LP.
As usual, new releases go on sale at NOON (CT) on Wednesdays via mondotees.com.
NEW THIS WEEK
PROFONDO ROSSO - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK 2XLP. Pressed on 2X 140 Gram red vinyl. Housed inside a gatefold sleeve with spot metallic ink. Artwork by Randy Ortiz. Note: This is a pre-order. Any orders places with this item will not ship until September 2018. $35.
Next to SUSPIRIA, PROFONDO ROSSO has to be the jewel in the Goblin crown. Recorded in 1975, the score finds the band at the height of their creativity and features the incredible lineup of Simonetti, Morante, Pignatelli & Martino. Bass & drums are so tight on this record and provide the foundations for the entire score. Jazz, Prog and Rock signatures all fight for center stage yet always manage to be precise, clear and perfectly executed. Synths and organs tinkle, wail and moan and more than provide the requisite chills and atmospherics. In addition, the album's prog wig-outs are legendary. It’s impossible to overstate the importance of this score, it really set the stage for prog-infused synth scores and has influenced a generation. We are super proud to not only be re-issuing the full original soundtrack as it originally appeared in 1975 (and pressed by the same original pressing plant!), but we also have an entire disc of alternate tracks and takes on vinyl for the first time ever, pulled from the Cinevox archives and compiled by Fabio Capuzzo! Once again the whole package is rounded out by absolutely jaw dropping artwork from Randy Ortiz.

“A beautiful Electro-minimalist homage to one of mankind’s most grandiose creations.” -Vehlinggo
Deadly Avenger is back, and this time to decimate your speakers with the raw throb and full-on heft of heavy drums and synth in a perfectly executed album dedicated to the power of the mighty Gojira. I Am Godzilla, You Are Japan is an ode to the king of monsters. Loud, brash and big, it’s a pure statement that Deadly Avenger is coming for you.
“SQUADRA ANTIGANGSTERS” (The Gang that Sold America) is one of over 10 films produced between the '70s and '80s in which the actor Tomas Milian plays the role of Police Marshal / Inspector Nico Giraldi, probably the most famous character out of the typical Italian detective films of that period, which were in practice Giallo movies with a strong comedy component. The album's songs go through various genres – Disco music, Country, Funk, Soul, Samba – with little concessions to some typical ‘Goblinian’ moments. $27
