Following on the success of their compilation Paura, Rustblade is preparing another LP of thrills and chills from the Italian master Ennio Morricone.
by Henry Schneider, Published 2016-07-11
From the press release:
This second part of the collection shows the darker experimental side of Ennio with pieces that have accompanied such films as Revolver, 900, Barbablù, Una Pura formalità, Un tranquillo posto in campagna and many more. Frightening orchestrations, dark jazz tapestries and unsettling piano movements are brought to life. With this release Rustblade attempts to shine a light on the compositional magic of an undisputed musical genius with a collection of songs appearing for the first time ever on vinyl.
Look for it out in September.
