Looking to up the ante on this year's Halloween party? You can do better than fake cobwebs from Michaels and an iTunes download of "Monster Mash." You're better than that.
What you're gonna need is you're gonna need some brains -- bloody, delicious brains, and plenty of 'em. That, and Written in Blood, Nate Ashley's seriously amazing compilation of "romantically macabre soundtrack music." There are five volumes of music sitting right here on the internet for the taking.
Covering 5 decades of haunting soundtrack music with over 100 songs! 10 years in the making, this 5 disc set includes never before released music and classic themes ranging from Ennio Morricone to Johan Soderqvist.
Written In Blood was designed and compiled by good friend, musician and soundtrack fanatic, Nate Ashley. Nate's been working on completing this 5-disc magnum-opus anthology of rare and essential horror movie music for many, many years. Its drawn from vinyl, cd, cassette, VHS, DVD- and in recent years- rare mp3 soundtrack sources. His knowledge of the genre and commitment to perfection has yielded what I consider to be an instant-classic bootleg compilation, featuring eerie custom illustrations and designs all lovingly rendered by Mr. Ashley himself.
The music ranges from old-school, strings-based scary songs to more modern, piano-based Halloween songs. Definitely sets a ghoulish mood. Grab Volume 1 here
