John Carpenter is not only a celebrated filmmaker but also a musical maestro whose soundtracks have become synonymous with the genres of horror, suspense, and science fiction. Anthology II (Movie Themes 1976-1988) continues the celebration of his compositional genius.
In close partnership with the film’s composers Martin Cooper and David Hughes, Waxwork Records located the original 1984 master tapes, restored them, and mixed and mastered the complete film music to create the definitive and official C.H.U.D. soundtrack album release.
“Cannibalistic. Humanoid. Underground. Dwellers.”
Waxwork Records is thrilled to present Candyman Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe. Directed by Nia DaCosta, Candyman, currently in theaters nationwide, is a fresh take on the blood-chilling urban legend and a contemporary incarnation of the 1992 cult horror classic.
“I am the writing on the wall, the sweet smell of blood. Be my victim.”
John Carpenter called the first Lost Themes album “a soundtrack for the movies in your mind.” On Lost Themes III: Alive After Death, those movies are even more vivid. The song titles here are among his most evocative, too.
“We understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses, how to communicate without words, and the process is easier now than it was in the beginning. We’ve matured.”
Acclaimed modern metal outfit Bleed from Within are putting the past behind them and positing an overhauled frame of mind on their new album, ‘Fracture’.
“The doubt and fear that consumed us for years have been replaced with an insatiable hunger to grow as people.”
In 1985, Macoto Tezka (son of the great manga artist Osamu Tezuka) met musician and TV personality Haruo Chicada, who had made a soundtrack to a movie which didn’t actually exist: The Legend of the Stardust Brothers. At the time Macoto was just 22 years old, a film-student with many short experimental films under his belt, but yet to make a feature-debut. With Chicada as producer, Tezka then adapted this “fake soundtrack” into the real movie story of The Stardust Brothers.
“Now you are reunited, your natural talent has awakened.”
Sacred Bones Records is pleased to present an expanded edition of the soundtrack, including more than 28 additional minutes of music from the film and presenting a more complete, immersive listening experience.
