During the early 60’s to the mid 80’s Italian horror was in its heyday – directors such as Mario Bava, Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, Antonio Margheriti, Umberto Lenzi, Joe D’Amato, and Enzo. G. Castellari directed some of the most outrageous terror films ever. Films that, at the time, pushed boundaries, depicting some of the most stylish and horrific on screen images. But at the same time these films included some of the most elegant and beautiful scores, scores which gained a cult following then and to this day – and they remain as popular now as they’ve ever been.

In comes Vault of Horror – The Italian Connection from Demon Records…

Featuring twenty of the most amazing film Italian genre themes ever, it is a heady mix of funk, disco, electronic and prog rock; featuring composers such as Stelvio Cipriani, Franco Micalizzi, Roberto Donati, Carlo Rustichelli, Nico Fidenco, Ennio Morricone, Fabio Frizzi, Riz Ortolani and many more. There are also original soundtrack themes from such films as Zombie Flesh Eaters, Cannibal Ferox, Blood And Black Lace, The Beyond, The New York Ripper, Tentacles and City Of The Living Dead.

Vault of Horror – The Italian Connection comes with a truly stunning, exclusive sleeve painted by renowned artist Graham Humphreys (best known for the classics UK Evil Dead artwork), and the biographical notes on each track are written by author, critic and FrightFest director Alan Jones. As an added bonus Demon Records are including a CD version in a replica card wallet as well as a stunning 12×12” reproduction collector’s art print of the sleeve painting.
