Music Weekly: THE DEVIL'S CANDY

Hi everyone! This week we have a few new titles: a physical pressing of the score to the wonderful THE DEVIL'S CANDY, and a new release from our friends at Data Discs, GUNSTAR HEROES.

As usual, new releases go on sale at NOON (CST) on Wednesdays.

The Devil’s Candy - Original Score LP. Music by Michael Yezerski. Pressed on 180g Clear & Black Marble with Red splatter. Includes a download code. Art by Matt Ryan Tobin. Please Note: this item is expected to ship Early July. $25

THE DEVIL'S CANDY is a kick ass heavy metal horror film delving deep into satanic horror directed by Sean Byrne (THE LOVED ONES). Jesse, a struggling artist, moves with his wife and daughter into their dream house in rural Texas, the price driven down by the property’s dark past. Their lives soon begin to unravel as the demonic forces lurking in the house take hold of the young family. Jesse’s paintings take a satanic turn while the family is plagued by Ray, the deranged son of the former owners. Soon it becomes clear that Jesse and Ray are both being influenced by the same dark forces and that Jesse and his family aren’t safe from its former inhabitants or indeed from the devil himself.
 
Michael Yezerski’s incredible score takes its cues from heavy metal but delves far deeper into the underground, offering up semi industrial soundscapes interlaced with piercing guitars and tonal attacks that would make Sun O))) proud. It’s intense, focused, raw, and scary as all hell.

Also available on Bandcamp and all good streaming platforms.

DISTRIBUTED TITLES

We're excited to distribute the latest title from our friends at Data Discs! 

The complete soundtrack to Treasure’s acclaimed run-and-gun shooter, newly remastered and available on vinyl for the very first time. Originally released in 1993 for the SEGA Mega Drive, GUNSTAR HEROES remains a cult favourite for its fast-paced and inventive play style, underpinned by an unforgettably frenetic, bass-heavy soundtrack composed by Norio “NON” Hanzawa. 

GUNSTAR HEROES is presented as a double LP, sourced from original hardware and cut at 45RPM. The packaging comprises a heavy single-pocket sleeve and two printed inner sleeves, showcasing an array of colorful illustrations and rare concept art drawn from the archives in Japan. Also included is a double-sided foldout poster, featuring the original cover art from both the Western and Japanese versions of the game. Available on 180g opaque red and blue vinyl or 180g black.
