Mondo & Death Waltz Recording Company
Death Waltz Recording Company will be debuting the soundtrack for director Jason Lei Howden’s heavy metal zom com DEATHGASM (lower case is for pussies) at MondoCon. The soundtrack is pressed on 180g double vinyl with a very NSFW cover by Sam Turner and features tracks from heavy metal’s finest including Emperor, Axeslasher, Nuslaughter, Beast Wars and many more. The previously announced Monster Squad soundtrack will be available first at MondoCon along with several exclusives yet to be announced!
The Mondo/Death Waltz pop up record store will also have a huge selection of European pressings including international soundtracks and an Italian library section chock full of re-issues. They will also have a very special, super secret re-issue that harks back to the early days of both Mondo & Death Waltz, bringing the labels full circle in 2016.
Le Matos – Live!
Death Waltz is beyond excited to have Le Matos performing at this year’s event. Attendees can rock out live to their killer mix of Electro, Techno, and 80s dance-floor synth attack.

Death Waltz will also have a very special version of Join Us for sale on the evening of the performance, limited to just 300 copies pressed on exclusive splatter vinyl.
