Published Feb 16, 2015Waxwork Records will be bringing us all back to Camp Crystal Lake with a second entry in its Friday the 13th soundtrack series. A vinyl salute to composer Harry Manfredini's score for Friday the 13th Part 2 is apparently on the way soon.
Very few details have been revealed, but the label appropriately enough took to its social media pages last Friday (February 13) to confirm that more soundtrack releases are on their way. As you'll see in the post below, that is the severed head of film ghoul Jason Voorhees' mother, as seen in the dude's cabin shrine in the slasher series' 1981 sequel.
Friday the 13th News later co-signed the reveal, adding that info on the release would be coming soon. Though the due date has not been revealed, may we point out that there are two more Friday the 13ths to go in 2015, in March and November, respectively.
As previously reported, Waxwork had delivered Manfredini's score to the first film last summer, pressing the platter onto "Woodland Green and Brown haze with Blood Splatter" coloured vinyl (a.k.a. "Camp Blood"), "Deep Murky Green" (a.k.a. "Crystal Lake") and a limited blood-filled vinyl variant. It was the first time the composer's score had been released in full on vinyl.
The score to the sequel has not previously been delivered on its own but had been included in a 2012 CD box set containing music from the first six Friday the 13th films. While a detailed tracklisting has yet to arrive, expect the score to feature a lot of creepy strings and the series' signature, body count-anticipating "ki ki ki, ma ma ma" vocal motif.
The second film was the first to feature Jason Voorhees as the main antagonist, though the mangled character had not yet grown into his familiar, hockey mask-wearing form. He, instead, wore a burlap sack over his head.
