"We’re going to get you. We’re going to get you. Not another peep. Time to go to sleep."
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'll hold in your hands manages to keep the essence and familiarity of the original score yet will feel completely new and exciting due to the addition of all new music combining the classic and the contemporary.
Joe LoDuca 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.”
The release features original artwork by Graham Humphreys (original Evil Dead artist) and is pressed on two 180 gram "Kandarian Demon" vinyls (green, yellow and purple swirl with red splatter).
Also includes a Necromonicon booklet featuring liner notes from Joe LoDuca, Bruce Campbell and Robert Tapert.
