Brand new repress for 2018 with all new artwork by Sara Deck. This is not a dream. Death Waltz Recording Company are proud to be returning another classic work to corporeal existence in the form of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth√ïs score to PRINCE OF DARKNESS. The second in Carpenter√ïs √íapocalypse trilogy√ì (sandwiched in between THE THING and IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS) the film takes on the myth of the return of the Anti-Christ to the living world but ingeniously places it into the world of science, dealing with notions of matter, antimatter, and theoretical physics. As is usual with Carpenter√ïs films, it was not treated well on release but has since picked up a cult following from home video.
Carpenter and Howarth√ïs score has the feel of a dream and a nightmare, one which is immediately displayed in the main title theme, where ethereal voices are combined with a typically catchy bassline to create a sense of disquieting mystery. Wild and dissonant synthesizer effects are juxtaposed with more traditional melody which suggests the meeting of our world and that of the Anti-God. The best way to stop the end of the world happening again is to listen to PRINCE OF DARKNESS.
Produced & Re-mastered by Alan Howarth, with Artwork by Sara Deck and sleeve notes by John Carpenter & Alan Howarth.
