'The Crow' Score Gets First Ever Vinyl Release
Published Sep 08, 2015The Crow rises again this Devil's Night. Or, more accurately, composer Graeme Revell's haunted score to the 1994 Brandon Lee film The Crow will soon be soaring out of speakers via its first-ever vinyl pressing. The record hits stores October 30 via Varese Sarabande.
An Amazon product listing [via Bloody Disgusting] points out that the forthcoming vinyl release marks "the first time any Crow album has been released on vinyl." Revell's moody work had originally been issued on CD and cassette through Varese Sarabande when the movie first hit screens. The label, meanwhile, has yet to officially confirm the vinyl reissue on its end.
As you'll see up above, the release features a depiction of the late Brandon Lee, who infamously died during the filming of The Crow following a tragic on-set firearms accident, in the role of the Crow. The supernatural anti-hero is shown gazing through the broken window of his apartment, this being a reference to his life as guitarist Eric Draven.
In addition to Revell's 1994 score, a motion picture soundtrack had also been crafted to support The Crow. That release, which has yet to be pressed onto vinyl, included material from Nine Inch Nails, the Cure, Pantera, the Rollins Band, Stone Temple Pilots, the Jesus and Mary Chain and more.
