Cold. Dark. Minimal. Effective.
John Carpenter’s films are of course known for their incredible scores, often performed by Carpenter himself, but for The Thing, Ennio Morricone handled the music. With his landmark score, Morricone – who recently won the Oscar for The Hateful Eight (which, funny enough, used bits of The Thing score) – pitch-perfectly captured the cold, isolated atmosphere of the story.
Today, Waxwork Records is thrilled to present the deluxe soundtrack re-issue to 1982’s sci-fi horror classic. The company has been working the past two years “to ensure that such a highly anticipated and sought after vinyl soundtrack re-issue would meet and exceed expectations of the biggest fan,” and the vinyl soundtrack is now available for pre-order.
Two different versions were initially available, the “Snow Variant” and “Deluxe Ice Edition,” but the latter has already sold out. So you better act fast on this one.
Here’s everything you need to know:
Features include the complete Ennio Morricone soundtrack re-mastered from the original master tapes, your choice of two different 180 gram colored vinyl variants, all new artwork by Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative, deluxe heavyweight packaging including satin coated old-style gatefold jackets with UV spot-gloss varnish, an 11” x 22” poster, a custom hand assembled breakaway “ice” slipcase with 100% overall UV gloss coating, and an exclusive interview with director John Carpenter.
Deluxe “Trapped In The Ice” Edition
