We’re going to get you. We’re going to get you. Not another peep. Time to go to sleep.
This week, we are thrilled to be releasing a completely reworked version of THE EVIL DEAD soundtrack, titled A NIGHTMARE REIMAGINED by the film's original composer Joe LoDuca. Joe went back to the score that started it all and not only re-recorded the whole score but also wrote all new music too, the result is absolutely outstanding, it’s scary, dynamic and true to it’s roots!
Also, we have our latest FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING promotion starting this week, so you have a chance to catch up on releases you may have missed and we’ll pay the shipping for you (see below for details). To add to the excitement we have added a bunch of sold-out warehouse finds to the site, and on Wednesday we'll be re-stocking our hugely popular test pressing offer, so it is totally worth having a snoop around the store this week.
EVIL DEAD - A NIGHTMARE REIMAGINED, TEST PRESSINGS, plus previously unreleased online PORTAL (Blue / Orange Edition) and RATATOUILLE (Strawberry & Cheese Edition), will be available this Wednesday (6/6) at NOON (CT), but scope out the site now as we've already started adding some stuff back to the site!

One of the most legendary horror scores ever recorded gets re-invented for 2018. Joe LoDuca went back to the drawing board to fully re-record and expand his original score to THE EVIL DEAD with absolutely terrifying results. The record you hold in your hands manages to keep the essence and familiarity of the original score yet feels completely new and exciting due to the addition of all new music combining the classic and the contemporary.
The artwork (by original EVIL DEAD artist Graham Humphreys) also combines the original visceral rawness with an incredible eye for detail and a painterly touch that comes from being a leader in the poster industry since 1981.
You can also buy or listen online on our Bandcamp site now or stream on Spotify starting this Friday.
Joe had this to say on the newly recorded and expanded score:
"EVIL DEAD was my first film commission. As fate would have it, this is the movie that has the most enduring impact on generations of fans. Every few years I get a request to release the score and my response is the same - I own the score, but not the recording rights. So when I was last approached to re-issue the score, I asked myself this question: Knowing what I now know, how would I write for that ensemble today? I am happy that I did. Welcome to my nightmare: re-imagined.”
