No tears please, it’s a waste of good suffering… Although, this announcement may bring a tear of joy to your eye.
This week, Mondo will offer the final two parts of the Hellraiser trilogy on vinyl, as well as a limited repress of the first Hellraiser soundtrack. But it gets better! As a special treat, the Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth soundtrack comes housed inside a "Box of Pleasures" slipcase which has room to hold Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II, and Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth!
Designed by Matt Ryan Tobin, the slipcase features a gold embossed spine and is an awesome way to hold your Hellraiser trilogy! Mondo also ventured to hell (also known as their warehouse) and found the final remaining 7" Lament Configuration box sets, which will also be going online with our drop this week!
Read on for more official details on each release and as usual, new releases go on sale on Wednesdays at NOON (CT) via mondotees.com.
Hellraiser - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Pressed on 180g "Uncle Frank" Vinyl housed inside a 425gsm gatefold jacket. Artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin. Liner notes by Clive Barker. This repress is 500 units only. Expected to Ship in December 2019. Ships Worldwide. $30
"Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to bring you a classic horror soundtrack fresh from the depths of Hell: Clive Barker's Hellraiser, featuring 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."
Hellbound: Hellraiser II - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Christopher Young. Artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin. Pressed on 180 Gram “Leviathan” vinyl cut at 45RPM. Expected to Ship in 7-10 Business Days. Ships Worldwide. $30
"Christopher Young returns to score the sequel to Hellraiser with arguably his most terrifying score to date. Hellbound is absolutely terrifying, fusing a large orchestra, a choir and electronics. Young manages to expand on the original score to deliver something much larger in scope and harkening back to the golden age of horror scores. A master of his craft, his work here is incredible with many layers to unravel, which rewards on multiple listens."
Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Randy Miller. Artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin. Pressed on 2X ‘Pillar Of Souls” vinyl cut at 45RPM and housed inside a slipcase that can also hold Hellraiser and Hellbound. Expected to Ship in December 2019. Ships Worldwide. $30
"For the third Hellraiser film, Randy Miller replaced Christopher Young for music duties, expanding on the already established themes of both Hellraiser & Hellbound. His score is dark, somber and laden with doomy atmospheres. An excellent score to round out the original Hellraiser trilogy."
Hellraiser - Lament Configuration 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. Last remaining copies available! Expected to Ship in 7-10 Business Days. Ships Worldwide. $80
