Available for the very first time on vinyl, Waxwork Records is proud to present Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The Lords of Salem (review) is a 2012 American supernatural horror film written, produced, and directed by Rob Zombie. The film stars Sheri Moon Zombie (The Firefly Trilogy), Meg Foster (They Live), Bruce Davison (X-Men), Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes), and Patricia Quinn (The Rocky Horror Picture Show). The plot focuses on a troubled female disc jockey, Heidi (Sheri Moon Zombie), who is a recovering drug addict living in Salem, Massachusetts. Her life becomes entangled with a coven of ancient Satan-worshipping women after receiving a strange wooden box and listening to the album inside it by a band named “The Lords”.
The soundtrack features classic songs by The Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, Rick James, Rush, Leviathan the Fleeing Serpent, John 5, and several more. The score features original cues by John 5 and Griffin Boice. In line with other Zombie soundtracks, the album features intermittent dialogue tracks from the movie.
