Just as unsettling as the Tall Man's sinister stroll in Don Coscarelli's Phantasm is the music that accompanies his steady strides. Tomorrow, Mondo and Death Waltz will release the original soundtracks to both Phantasm and Joe D’Amato's Absurd:

Press Release: Tomorrow we have two awesome releases from Mondo & Death Waltz Recording Co: PHANTASM Original Motion Picture LP and ABSURD (ROSSO SANGUE) Original Motion Picture Soundtrack 2XLP.

Available on Vinyl for the first time in over 35 Years, Mondo is honored to re-issue Fred Myrow & Malcolm Seagrave's iconic soundtrack to Don Coscarelli's horror classic PHANTASM. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl, with new artwork by Phantom City Creative and featuring all new liner notes by the film's Writer / Director.

Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to unleash another cult classic from the video nasty era (and their first in an ongoing series from the legendary CAM Records in Italy) with Carlo Maria Cordio’s musical score to Joe D’Amato’s notorious ABSURD (aka ROSSO SANGUE). Tension is the order of the day much of the time, with synths, an electric keyboard, and a snare drum being Cordio’s weapons. If you love your prog-rock horror music, ABSURD will be right up your alley. Just leave the axe at home, no?

Please follow us on Twitter for the on sale announcement. These records will be available online at a random time on Wednesday, May 27th."
