Unseen Forces will be releasing the complete motion picture soundtrack from Fede Alvarez’s 2013 remake of the cult horror masterpiece the “Evil Dead“. The orchestral score for the film was done by the Spanish composer Roque Baños.
Baños studied music at the Upper Music Conservatory of Murcia and Madrid’s Real Conservatorio Superior before graduating from Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music, but with EVIL DEAD he steps beyond the jazz influences evidenced in his previous scores. Here the maestro eloquently assumes the role of firestarter, conducting like a pyromaniac invoking the destructive majesty of flame – both demonic and cleansing – with smoldering strings and brass building toward total aural incineration. To that end, he cleverly employs a prominent siren motif that at turns suggests a dreadful fire alarm in slow motion, the nostalgia of an amusement park haunted house attraction and a prodigious yawning door somewhere in the deepest chasm of hell. A thoroughly cinematic experience suffused with sweeping overtures and jarring choral crescendos, Baños has created a dark and vital epic for the ages. This 2xLP edition is pressed on 140gram vinyl – with a locked groove for extended terror, and entombed in a lavish gatefold cover!
