Death Waltz Recording Company has yet another ace up our sleeve with the soundtrack to 2014's best action films, Adam Wingard's THE GUEST, with a musical score by Steve Moore. Critically acclaimed, the “guest” in question is David, a young man who lands on the doorstep of the Peterson family claiming to be a comrade of their son, who was killed while on tour in Afghanistan,. But while David appears to a model citizen, the family daughter discovers several clues that make her wonder “Just who is this man?”
Just like the film is a homage to 80's thrillers like THE TERMINATOR, Steve Moore's score belongs in another time, another place. Homaging rather than emulating, the music feels not only absolutely authentic but also fits the film like a glove. Great synth melodies are plentiful, the electronics swell with mystery and intrigue, and the sense of the robotic electro music has is perfect for the character of David. It's an intense journey but not one without reward – don't be afraid to let THE GUEST into your home and onto your turntable.
Composed and Produced by Steve Moore

Available for the first time on ever on Vinyl, Michael Perilstein's (The Deadly Spawn) score to one of the most absurd horror films ever put to celluloid.

Complete with a collection of bonus cues newly recorded by Perilstein. Featuring original artwork by We Buy Your Kids, and all new liner notes by the composer.
Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to present yet another soundtrack from the video nasty age, guaranteed* to cause you harm and go out and murder others, this time in the name of the lord. Corrupting your mind this time is Alessandro Alessandroni’s score to Giulio Berruti’s nunsploitation classic KILLER NUN (aka SUOR OMICIDI). Anita Ekberg stars as Sister Gertrude, a member of the sisterhood who descends into shocking depths of homosexuality and drug addiction while shocking her little town. But while she’s undoubtedly deranged, is she guilty of murder?
Like the film, Alessandroni’s musical score is a strange one, opening with a religious choir and heavy piano notes. You might think that’s pretty standard for a movie like this, so Alessandroni starts messing with you by injecting some proto-hip hop beats with flutes and synth melodies. Things get stranger the further you get in as we have dissonant electronics that sound like chiptunes, funk beats, chilled electric guitar, and interludes of operatic vocals. And then there’s the amazing downbeat guitar piece that sounds straight out of a spaghetti western. It’s mad and it shouldn’t work – but you can probably say that about a movie called KILLER NUN anyway. This ain’t your normal convent!
First time ever on vinyl and includes 3 tracks never before heard or released from the beat records Archive.
Pressed on Red and Black colour in colour vinyl housed inside a 425 reverse board sleeve with spot varnish and obi strip. Includes an exclusive lobby card.
Death Waltz Recording Company are proud to unleash a new offering in our Originals line, this time from the acclaimed Head Technician of PYE CORNER AUDIO taking you on a sonic journey through yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Mystery abounds; the hiss and buzz of old machinery envelops you – the voyage has begun and you have awoken from cryogenic slumber. Welcome to 2080. A doom-laden synthesiser riff takes control and guides you with unerring precision, the inevitably incredible beat providing weight and heft along the way.
Electronic screeches echo in the darkness, suddenly silenced. Of course John Carpenter and Tangerine Dream come to mind, but PYE goes beyond those influence and transcends them, creating its own frame of reference. Dystopian, foreboding, dissonant, like an unearthed soundtrack to a great piece of science fiction, one that you yourself can imagine. Just strap yourself in, close your eyes, and let your mind wander, intertwined with the terror and the colour of space that is PYE CORNER AUDIO.
These records will be available at a random time tomorrow, April 28th. We're incredibly excited to offer FREE SHIPPING (domestic) and $10 FLAT-RATE SHIPPING (international) for ALL VINYL on the site. This offer will take place April 28th (11am CST) - May 5th (11am CST)!
