ARROW RECORDS present the original soundtrack to ARMANDO CRISPINO’S gory and unusual archaeology themed giallo THE ETRUSCAN KILLS AGAIN, a film also known by its US theatrical release title THE DEAD ARE ALIVE. Previously unpublished on vinyl, this is something of a hidden gem in the discography of RIZ ORTOLANI, a celebrated composer whose masterful musical scoring immeasurably enhances such top tier Italian shockers as CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, DON’T TORTURE A DUCKING and HOUSE ON THE EDGE OF THE PARK.
Here Ortolani provides a gloriously romantic main theme, distinguished by sweeping strings and plaintive piano, whilst elsewhere the soundtrack ventures into anxiety inducing suspense cues, bittersweet ballads, and even a freewheeling jazz workout.
This translucent red and black splatter vinyl edition is exclusive to www.arrowfilms.com, limited to 200 copies and comes with 5 lobby cards. The recording has been newly mastered from the original analogue tapes by JAMES PLOTKIN and is presented on 180 gram wax, housed inside a 350gsm sleeve. Featuring newly commissioned artwork by SEAN PHILLIPS and accompanying film notes by GUY BARTELL of BRONNT INDUSTRIES KAPITAL.
