It never ceases to amaze me the titles that are getting a soundtrack released these days. Even the most obscure movie scores seem to pop up out of nowhere, and demanding money from me! And who am I to argue?
The latest is Carlo Savina’s score for Jorge Grau’s 1973 film Ceremonia Sangrienta aka Blood Ceremony aka The Legend of Blood Castle aka The Female Butcher, and just a few other titles. But now, thanks to the wonderful folks Quartet Records, you can now have this score for your own collection. We have a couple of Savina’s scores, like for Crypt of the Vampire and Malenka and can’t wait to add another gothic score for this composer. This release was mastered from first-generation stereo master tapes and containsa full color 8-page booklet with liner notes by Gergely Hubai.
According to Quartet Records, with this release, Savina gives us “an intense musical experience featuring both tonal and atonal passages, with a strong focus on instruments, such as the harpsichord, associated with the period and the place . Savina creates an ominous Gothic atmosphere in what is surely one of his best efforts within the horror genre.” I know it will be one that I will be adding to the collection.
