Italian Horror Flick 'Absurd' to Get Soundtrack Reissue via Death Waltz
Published May 21, 2015The soundtrack specialists at Death Waltz Recording Company are continuing to do what they do best: give fancy vinyl pressings to horror flicks and cult classics. The latest of these is Absurd, a murderous Italian monster flick from 1981 that will be getting a soundtrack release.
Death Waltz will be teaming up with PentaMusic for the release, which will apparently be available on Mondo Tees as soon as next week. It consists of 22 tracks which will come on fancy-looking double-vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. The intestines on the front cover are embossed.
Known in Italy as Rosso Sangue, the film's score was composed by Carlo Maria Cordio and consists of a scary-sounding mix of synths, anxious percussion, tinkling pianos and electric guitar. According to a statement from the label [via FACT], "Anyone who is a fan of Rob's Maniac score, or indeed any of the new school synth-based scores such as It Follows, would do well to check out one of the original synth scores that started it all."

This is reportedly the first instalment in a series of releases with Italy's famed CAM Records.
