Fabio Frizzi

City Of The Living Dead Original Score LP

"Death Waltz Recording Company have been hard at work exhuming a true classic of horror scoring, and the result stands out like a nail through an eyeball. Directed by gorehound favourite Lucio Fulci, CITY OF THE LIVING DEADís incredible score comes from a true master of ferocious film music, Fabio Frizzi (THE BEYOND, ZOMBI 2), and provides a sonic experience not easily put down. All the ingredients youíd imagine are here: eerie synth lines, horrific violins, and the funkiest bass known to man or zombie Ė and Frizzi uses them to maximum effect to overwhelm the listener like the hordes of undead they score.
 
What Frizzi does so easily is make the instruments into weapons to assault your senses, and as such CITY is an intense aural journey, but certainly not one thatíll have you reaching for the off switch. The score is mesmerising with some moments of true beauty, not least in the instrumentation. Electric guitar in particular is used wonderfully to provide colour, and both real and electric pianos add a certain foreboding mood to the score. And then thereís that portentous male choir, always there in the background, waiting. Like the zombies themselves, itís omnipresent and a symbol of inevitability. And itís inevitable that you will adore CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD." - Light in the Attic Records
