Halloween II

It's been too hot to blog recently. As usual I've got a pile of records sat here taller than Glenn Danzig that I need to get round to posting up. I'm gonna make every effort to do a post every day this week to catch up. Anyway I figured I'd start the week off with something a little different.

This is the Halloween II score from Death Waltz Recording Co. As you may or may not know I'm something of a horror fan and when I saw the amazing new Brandon Schaefer artwork on the cover of this thing I had to get a copy. The cover of this thing is laminated like say the debut Uncle Acid LP and although my photo doesn't do it justice it really does look awesome. Michael Myers + bleeding eyes = Sinister as hell!!

I'd not heard of Death Waltz before this and it seems I've missed out on some classic releases they have already put out. Bummer. Gonna be keeping an eye out for future releases that's for sure.

The record came with a big poster of the cover art which was nice even though I highly doubt I'll ever hang it. I suspect it might scare the shit out of the kids haha.

The vinyl it's self is suitably distressed too with this odd orange encrusted (for want of a better expression) black vinyl. It's 'limited edition' but I have no idea as to how many. The description on the Death Waltz website sums this up perfectly, 'nerve shreddingly intense. Synths wail and stutter as the score progresses to the point where you feel your head might implode from the oncoming onslaught. This score really should be played late at night with all of the lights out.'

As I put up the Converge Jane Doe slip mat I bought a while ago I figured I'd also put the Death Waltz one that I picked up on here too. It Glows in the dark you know!

  1. It's like an evil version of the Blink 182 Enema Of The State cover
