8/10 Brett Staff review, 20 November 2008
Last year Bronnt Industries Kapital did a soundtrack for the European DVD release of Haxan (aka Witchcraft Through the Ages), released by the sadly defunct Tartan Films, I've only seen the Criterion release so the music's totally new to me which is probably for the best - it'd be a bit wrong to review the CD with the way it soundtracked the visuals in mind. Luckily the sounds stand completely on their own without the need for a visual accompaniment. Mournful and haunting like a ruined old church, these tracks utilise a multitude of acoustic and electronic sources to rustle up an atmosphere of olde worlde dread that it's easy to get completely swallowed up by.. Organs feature heavily as you might expect. We were just discussing what genre we could handily box stuff like this into and it's really hard, there's quite a lot of tinkling experimental electro-acoustic baz around at the moment and you always feel like your flailing around like an idiot trying to describe it properly. Ant's suggestion of calling it 'donkey porn' is as good as any I've heard though. This is really, really good stuff. If you do feel the need to check the film out (and you should!) the DVD containing this soundtrack is out of print so will most likely be rising in price as we speak, so the best way to go to enjoy the film with this score might be to get the Criterion DVD and play this at the same time.. Bit of a ballache and it might well be synched up differently but the running times are pretty much the same so it just might work...
