Published May 15, 2013Horror fans, rejoice: UK imprint Death Waltz Recording Company has unveiled plans for another pair of soundtracks to add to its ever-increasing catalogue of scarifying movie scores.
As previously reported, the label is working with famed UK horror movie house Hammer Films to deliver a pressing of Harry Robinson's score to 1971's Twins of Evil, which is now confirmed to arrive June 20. Oddly, while Twins of Evil had previously been planned as the second instalment of the partnership, following a repress of The Devil Rides Out, a delay with the latter makes this the first actual entry in the series.
While composed by Robinson, the set was conducted by Philip Martel. According to a press release, the music was remastered for the release and will appear on a limited-edition vinyl pressing of 400 on "split transparent red and solid white vinyl." Marking a first for Death Waltz, it will also arrive on CD as a "triple fold-out pop-up CD."
The cover art was delivered by Eelus, and liner notes were written by Eelus and Marcus Hearn. Also included in the package are a 12x12 lithograph print and poster of the cover art.
Also on June 20, Death Waltz will release a limited-edition pressing for the soundtrack to Italian horror master Lucio Fulci's 1981 film, House By the Cemetery. The synth-heavy score was arranged by Walter Rizzatti, and the vinyl edition was pressed onto "transparent red and solid black," also in an edition of 400. The exclusive artwork (pictured above) was whipped up by Graham Humphreys, who also contributed liner notes with Stephen Thrower.

As previously reported, Death Waltz fans can expect an expanded vinyl reissue of John Carpenter's The Fog to go on sale in June as well.
In other news, Death Waltz head Spencer Hickman recently visited California and delivered a DJ set. You can stream and/or download the set, which was made up of synth-heavy vinyl acquisitions made on the trip, down below.
