Mondo has announced that they will be previewing their vinyl soundtrack of Army Of Darkness at this year’s MondoCon, which takes place October 3rd and 4th in Austin, TX. The music was composed by Joseph LoDuca with the additional piece “March Of The Dead Theme”, which was composed by genre fave Danny Elfman. Details on the release can be found below.
This is a really incredible release, in my opinion. Elfman’s “March Of The Dead” is a fantastically playful piece that sets up the film wonderfully while LoDuca is a criminally underappreciated composer who is the backbone of the Evil Dead series, as well as being the sonic mastermind behind “Spartacus“, My Name Is Bruce, and the wonderful Brotherhood of the Wolf.
I own several Mondo records and their quality is pristine. I can’t recommend picking this up highly enough to any fan of the film or avid soundtrack collector, such as myself.
MondoCon will host some fantastic events, such as “The Art of Toys and Collectibles”, “William Stout Career Retrospective”, a “Soundtrack Panel” with Spencer Hickman (Mondo record label manager) and & production manager Mo Shafeek, and a great deal more.
