For synth aficionados, every day is synth day. However, September (aka Synthtember) is a particularly great month for celebrating the best of synth scores, music from soundtracks and compositions inspired by the cinematic experience. If you’re a dedicated follower of Lakeshore Records, then you were among the first to be notified of two special announcements for your listening pleasure.
Released October 21, 2016, it’s been three years since synth musicians OGRE (Robin Ogden) and Dallas Campbell collaborated on the rescore to George A. Ramirez classic, Night of the Living Dead – Original Motion Picture Rescore! This rescore is based on the seminal 1968 film.
If you dare to watch the original, head over to Amazon Prime Video and stream the original, now remastered and available in 1080p HD digital transfer from a rare film print presented in its original 1.37:1 aspect ratio! Be sure to hit play on your soundtrack!
What if you could rewrite cinematic horror history? We kick off this year’s 31 Days of Halloween with Fangoria Presents: Hollydoom – Original Magazine Soundtrack! Lakeshore Records released this epic horror soundtrack compilation in partnership with Fangoria, featuring some of the year’s tastiest tunes in celebration of the legendary magazine’s relaunch. Says Phil Nobile Jr., Editor-in-Chief of the magazine: “It’s ten tracks of affectionate, synth-driven false memories that will confuse music historians for generations.”
