Published Feb 19, 2015Horror score-influenced two-piece Zombi will soon unearth a chunk of older, synth-slathered sounds via a repress of their previously CD-only The Zombie Anthology. The creepy collection comes out on CD, digitally and in its first-ever vinyl pressing April 21 through Relapse Records.
The anthology collects Zombi's earliest recordings, including a 2001 demo tape, and was whipped up by Pittsburgh duo to sell on a 2003 tour with Daughters. The then-limited-edition release will now be delivered through Relapse in a few vinyl variations. You can pick up the set on white vinyl, as well as on blood red, clear, and silver vinyl, the latter reflecting Relapse's ongoing 25th anniversary celebrations.
You'll find the pre-order info here.
The set is said to find Zombi "at the peak of their horror-score obsession," with the group's influences including Goblin and John Carpenter. You'll find a trailer showing off various minimalist synthscapes down below.
Zombi's last official release was 2011's Escape Velocity, though Relapse offered up a few vinyl represses from the band's back catalogue in 2013, and both Steve Moore and Anthony Paterra have released solo albums in recent years.
UPDATE: Via a press release, Zombi have also confirmed they are working on a new album. The release states: "The record, which will consist of nine new songs and clock in at over 60 minutes, was heavily inspired by the band touring in 2013 with Italian prog legends Goblin. Their first tour in over six years allowed the duo to play as a band again instead of a collaborative studio project."
