- The Devil's Business by Justin Greaves
1 review. Write a review for us »
In a slight break from routine, horror soundtrack reissue specialists Death Waltz are taking a brief intermission from their systematic excavation of cinematic chills from the past to offer us this brand new offering from Crippled Black Phoenix’s Justin Greaves, taking a break from his band’s post-metal theatrics to construct this ominous score for Sean Hogan’s satanic indie gangster flick ‘The Devil’s Business’.
You can tell that Greaves is steeped in classic soundtracks already, since this collection is full of synths, guitar and drums which carve graceful swathes of dread through smooth ethereal drones and slow-burning slightly Goblin-esque rock. It’s reminding me quite a lot of Michael Perilstein’s score for ‘The Deadly Spawn’ which got a welcome repress on Mondo recently, crossed with Fabio Frizzi’s quiet, synth-based moments - even a touch of Earth sometimes when he’s playing guitar. The pace is always super slow and deliberate, there’s no adrenaline pumping Carpenter synth pulses or wild Korzynski-esque genre-blending, but what we do get is a patient, detailed collection of glacially paced synth heavy chills which fits into the Death Waltz canon perfectly. The CD edition has a fancy “pop-up” sleeve too.
