The Laze 'The Phantom of the Opera' (album stream)
Published Jun 23, 2014We don't mean to scare you too much, horror score fanatics, but there are still a couple of months to go before One Way Static delivers UK troupe the Laze's adaptation to The Phantom of the Opera. Luckily, the instrumental accompaniment to the 1925 silent movie has crept up from the cellar a little early in the form of online stream.
As previously reported, the UK unit's interpretation has been described as "nervous classical music," mixing together influences like Goblin, John Carpenter and Bernard Hermann with elements of prog, heavy metal, jazz and electronica. You can check out the collection's diversity via whirling, Wurlitzer-driven baroque pieces like "Faust Phantasmal," the freaky melange of horn squawking and fuzzed-out guitar chords on "The Face of Terror" and the haunted canal dissonance of "Watery Grave," among other moments.
You can grab the soundtrack on various formats August 12, but you can sample the set in full, via FACT, down below.
