BRAND NEW & EXPANDED EDITION! Packed with dozens of additional horror titles and containing limited edition enhanced packaging (gilded foil page edges + ribbon marker).

Are you obsessed with John Carpenter''s iconic music for theHalloween series? Do you thrill to the unforgettable stabs of the Psycho score, or the pounding synths of Goblin''s soundtrack toSuspiria? Do you find yourself being pulled into the hair-raising modern scores for the likes ofGet Out, Hereditary, andIt Follows?

You''re not alone.

Blood on Black Wax is a defining horror soundtrack volume that spotlights iconic franchises such asA Nightmare on Elm Street,Friday the 13th,Jaws,The Exorcist,Child’s Play, and George A. Romero''s “living dead” films, highlighting both the music and the amazing, often rare artwork that graces the record sleeves. It also tells the stories behind the soundtrack, from the mouths of the musicians who made them, including John Carpenter, Fabio Frizzi, Christopher Young, Harry Manfredini, Charles Bernstein, Pino Donaggio, John Harrison, and more.

Aaron Lupton and Jeff Szpirglas, both ofRue Morgue magazine, have curatedBlood on Black Wax to reflect their own passion for the darkest slabs of soundtrack music. Their journey into the fascinating history of horror movie scores contains reviews, release details, and the wild stories about the making of both iconic classics and the strange outliers of the genre – everything from the orchestral sounds of Hammer and Universal horror, to the truly experimental albums forThe Texas Chainsaw Massacre andEraserhead, to the outlandish punk and metal songs of ''80s soundtrack albums likeThe Return of the Living Dead andShocker.

Go back to your favorite horror films one more time, through the jaw-dropping, spine-tingling music that helped solidify their place in cinematic history!
