Dracula A.D. 1972 starts off very traditionally, with the classic symphonic Hammer sound as established by the likes of James Bernard scoring a nineteenth century prologue as Dracula and Van Helsing battle to the death. Dramatic drum rolls and emphatic brass mark this as the Hammer you're used to, before the main theme strides into action with its Barry-esqur brass hits and uber-catchy sax melody and shocks you with just how cool it is. Vickers combines both approaches with ease, although a highlight is the psychedelic and harrowing score for the black magic ceremony. A classic example of great scoring from the world of pop, Dracula A.D. 1972 will leave you breathless and screaming - with delight.
