8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 22 August 2012
I’m fairly confused by this record from the outset. It’s got two shortish pieces (just over 15 minutes in total) on a 45rpm 12” which is on crazy-looking splatter vinyl with massive 7” centre stickers and plenty of striking and gory artwork. Anyway, as far as I can tell these are Italian horror soundtrack classics by Fabio Frizzi and Walter Rizzati/Alessandro Blonksteiner which have been reinvented by Alain Leonard (On/Off) and Alex Wank (Pungent Stench) way back in 1998.
It’s taken me so long to figure all of this out that the record is nearly over now so I’m going to say a thing or two about the Rizzati/Blonksteiner one from ‘House By The Cemetery’ first. It’s got quite a pumping industrial beat to it, lots of stabbing synth, and some horrific processed vocals. It sounds quite hyperactive and a little bit glitchy, almost bordering on some kind of ‘90s happy hardcore influence or maybe groove-metal types like White Zombie. In fact yes, this is reminding me an awful lot of White Zombie. Layered, grinding, groovy, pumping spook-industrial pop. Quite silly but lots of fun.Anyway, on to the A side, which is their take on Frizzi’s dramatic and distinctive theme from Fulci’s zombie classic ‘The Beyond’, given a pumping John Carpenter-esque makeover with a slow-building insistent sense of panic for a quite exhilarating listen. I like this one the best but these are both entertaining, energetic and affectionate takes on the classic horror sounds.
