Burning Witches Records in conjunction with Arrow Video are excited to present:
Jonathan Snipes original soundtrack to one of the most shocking and disconcerting documentary subjects; El Duce.

Jonathan Snipes with backing band Nilbog unleash their inner garage rock demons juxtaposed with Snipes’ electronic and emotive soundscape tracks. The score will make you feel both as uneasy and engaged as the documentary. An absolutely vital listen alongside the film.

“In the early 90s, aspiring filmmaker (and General Hospital co-star) Ryan Sexton lugged a giant camcorder into some of the seediest clubs and the filthiest apartments in Hollywood. There he filmed hour upon hour of VHS footage of the jaw-droppingly offensive Shock Rock band The Mentors, focusing on their infamous lead singer, “El Duce.”

30 years later, the team behind The Nightmare and Room 237 uncover this dusty stockpile of long forgotten – and unseen – footage. 

An incendiary, tragicomic documentary (midway between The Decline of Western Civilization and Crumb) which has been hailed as ‘Essential Viewing’ by CineVue and called ‘Dark and Irresistible’ by director John Carpenter, The El Duce Tapes will chew you up, spit you out, and leave you floored.” - Arrow video
