10/10 according to on 20th August 2013

My copy of Death Waltz's re-issue of John Carpenter's The Fog arrived today.

This is seriously a soundtrack I've been dying to get. I've grown up with both the music and movies by John Carpenter, but There's Something In The Fog that makes it the best soundtrack of them all. Carpenter is well known for his awesome semi-progressive synthesizer scores, but on this one he really manages to capture the restless and gloomy atmosphere.

Pressed on high quality 180 gram golden vinyl, this release is aptly titled "Blake's Gold Edition" - a reference to none other than the original film's evil ghost.
The packaging and artwork is sheer DWRC quality, with awesome original artwork by Dinos Chapman and surprisingly interesting liner notes by John Carpenter.

This is a must-get collector's edition of a must-get soundtrack for every horror and prog fan. Get it and watch out for Blake's revenge!

Another fantastic release from Death Waltz. In natty Gold Vinyl aswell. This label can do no wrong.Sent me straight back to my John Carpenter Box Set to watch the film again.

Press release

Death Waltz is set to release a double vinyl album of THE FOG which includes the original movie score as released in 1984, along with a bonus vinyl including all of the original movie cues which have never been made available on vinyl before.

The Fog was John Carpenter’s first film after the low-budget success of Halloween, and tells the story of a small North California fishing town terrorized by a glowing supernatural fog containing the vengeful ghosts of six murdered lepers. Like most of Carpenter’s films, the score was written by by the director himself, and built on the more simplistic piano melody and synthesizer combination of the iconic Halloween score, to create something much more abstract and foreboding.

Album cover art is by Dinos Chapman - yes the Dinos Chapman : as an internationally renowned solo artist, and together with his brother Jake, Dinos Chapman makes iconoclastic sculpture, prints and installations that examine, with searing wit and energy, contemporary politics, religion and morality. The Chapman's have exhibited extensively, including numerous shows at White Cube, Tate Britain, and Tate Liverpool.

  • Double gatefold heavyweight tip on sleeve featuring 2 x 180gm gold VINYL
  • Disc one is the original movie soundtrack album as released in 1984
  • Disc two features all previously unreleased score cue from the film
  • Exclusive artwork by Dinos Chapman
  • Sleeve notes by Dinos Chapman & John Carpenter
