30th anniversary of one of my favourite horror movies, Dario Argento and Lamberto Bava‘s Demons! I still remember watching it on VHS on wednesday afternoons… Claudio Simonetti‘s original soundtrack definitely reinforced the movie’s dark and unique atmosphere of the movie, with blood-stained 80s synthpop tracks like “Demons”, “Out Of Time”, or “Killing”, and frightening themes like “Cruel Demon”, “The Evil One”, or “Threat.”
This release also includes demo versions and a previously unreleased track, “Demon’s Lounge”, and the CD version also includes remixes by OHGR, LEAETHER STRIP and a few others, but the coloured vinyl is limited to 666 copies and includes a poster!
This anniversary release would have been complete with the addition of the songs of bands like MÖTLEY CRÜE, BILLY IDOL, or ACCEPT you can hear in the movie, but copyrights probably prevented them to appear on the record. Anyway, this just made me want to watch Demons again!/Laurent C.
