No tears please, it’s a waste of good suffering….

We are absolutely thrilled to bring you the final two parts of our HELLRAISER trilogy this week as well as a limited repress of the first HELLRAISER.

As a special treat, HELLRAISER III: HELL ON EARTH comes housed inside a ‘Box Of Pleasures’ Slipcase which has room to hold HELLRAISER, HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II, & HELLRAISER III: HELL ON EARTH.

NEW THIS WEEK

HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Christopher Young. Artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin. Pressed on 180 Gram “Leviathan” vinyl cut at 45RPM. Expected to Ship in 7-10 Business Days. Ships Worldwide. $30

Christopher Young returns to score the sequel to HELLRAISER with arguably his most terrifying score to date. HELLBOUND is absolutely terrifying, fusing a large orchestra, a choir and electronics. Young manages to expand on the original score to deliver something much larger in scope and harkening back to the golden age of horror scores. A master of his craft, his work here is incredible with many layers to unravel, which rewards on multiple listens.


HELLRAISER III: HELL ON EARTH - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP. Music by Randy Miller. Artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin. Pressed on 2X ‘Pillar Of Souls” vinyl cut at 45RPM and housed inside a slipcase that can also hold HELLRAISER & HELLBOUND. Expected to Ship in December 2019. Ships Worldwide. $30

For the third HELLRAISER film, Randy Miller replaced Christopher Young for music duties, expanding on the already established themes of both HELLRAISER & HELLBOUND. His score is dark, somber and laden with doomy atmospheres. An excellent score to round out the original HELLRAISER trilogy. 

BACK IN STOCK

HELLRAISER - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Pressed on 180g ‘Uncle Frank’ Vinyl housed inside a 425gsm gatefold jacket. Artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin. Liner notes by Clive Barker. This repress is 500 units only. Expected to Ship in December 2019. Ships Worldwide. $30

Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to bring you a classic horror soundtrack fresh from the depths of Hell: Clive Barker's HELLRAISER, featuring music by celebrated genre composer Christopher Young (THE FLY 2, SPIDER-MAN 3, DEF-CON 4). Instead of providing a typical '80s synth score, Christopher Young used a full orchestra to create a symphonic score that was epic is scope. It’s a phenomenal piece of work - huge strings, waltz-like time signatures, and suites that run from the ethereal to downright scary in a matter of moments. We're releasing HELLRAISER in conjunction with Lakeshore Records for its 30th anniversary.
