H. P. Lovecraft’s, Dagon, The Cats of Ulthar & The Music of Erich Zann LP – Read by Andrew Leman, Score by Anima Morte LP

Vinyl spoken arts label Cadabra Records presents an audio adaption H. P. Lovecraft’s classics Dagon, The Cats of Ulthar & The Music of Erich Zann, read by renown Lovecraftian scholar and narrator Andrew Leman, with an original score by cinematic instrumentalists Anima Morte.

Told from the perspective of a drug-addled mariner, Dagon is H.P. Lovecraft at his scaly and slimy best. First published in 1919, the short story has become one of Lovecraft’s most well known and adapted works, notably by horror director Stuart Gordon and referenced by many other games and novels. Read by Andrew Leman with a synth-driven score by Anima Morte, Dagon moves at an unrelenting pace, challenging you to question everything you think you know about our place in the natural world.

The Cats of Ulthar finishes Side 1, giving Anima Morte a wonderful tale to grow their haunting and melodic score. With Cats, the music takes a decidedly European tone, filled with gentle acoustic guitar offset by bells, chimes, and droning strings. Side 2 contains The Music of Erich Zann, where the score becomes much more immediate and paranoid; the dripping synth sounds and effects enveloping Leman’s masterful reading. As a thrilling bonus, accomplished cellist Leo Svensson Sander gives life to Zann’s mythical instrument, providing a tangible fury you won’t soon forget.
Statues will shine, oceans will rise, and even you may get lost in time and space while listening to this terrifying collection, only available from your friends at Cadabra Records!

2017 – 7″ (Giallo music) – Engraved vinyl. 100 copies green, 400 copes black.

Giallo Music is proud to announce its second release: ANIMA MORTE & FABIO FRIZZI “Inertia Of The Risen”. A special song collaboration to be release as a one sided collectors edition 7” EP with an engraving on the flipside and artwork by Costin Chioreanu. Included is also a postcard and a sticker.

ANIMA MORTE is a Swedish cinematic instrumental horror group established in 2004. Their music is progressive rock / horror soundtrack / instrumental, continuing the legacy of bands and artists like Goblin, Fabio Frizzi, Bruno Nicolai, Stelvio Cipriani, Rick Wakeman, Ennio Morricone and the likes. With three full albums, two 7″ EPs, a split 12” LP w/ Polish Antigama and contributions to various compilations “Inertia Of The Risen” is another outstanding release in the band’s discography.

FABIO FRIZZI is one of the most famous Italian musicians and composers known for his film scores for classics such as City Of The Living Dead, The Beyond, Manhattan Baby, The Psychic and the likes.

Here is Fabio’s comment regarding the upcoming release:

“I believe that music is the strongest tool for sharing experiences and emotions, to break down boundaries and prejudices in our wonderful and strange world. Making music together with others, in my opinion, is an incredible experience. The members of the group Anima Morte are good musicians, nice guys that the network has helped me to meet. And their proposal to jointly write a song I met with enthusiasm.

Everyone has put his own, I got the support, for the recording of the “Roman” tracks, of some of my most trusted musicians, members of the Frizzi 2 Fulci band. In short, my old and late friend, Lucio Fulci, has indirectly begun to create this collaboration. And this friendship.”

This is what the ANIMA MORTE members says about this special release:

“The very idea of Anima Morte would probably not been conceived at all, had it not been for the legendary movies of director Lucio Fulci and the masterful and iconic scores of Fabio Frizzi. The classic trilogy of Zombie, City of the Living and The Beyond was a great influence on our younger selves and served as an entry point for us when we were trying to recreate what we felt was the lost atmosphere from an era of horror movies we loved. Fabio Frizzi did not only create ominous atmospheres but also melancholic and beautiful themes that stick to your mind long after the movie finished.

An idea formed when we were writing songs for our third album ‘Upon Darkened Stains’ that we should reach out to Mr. Frizzi to see if he would like to be a guest on the album. After some discussions we went instead with the idea to write a new and unique song.
It was a great experience composing this work together with Fabio and it took several recording sessions in different parts of Europe before it was finally finished and mixed in Rome last year. Now we can finally uncover Inertia Of The Risen. A title inspired by our favourite undead creatures!

We want to thank Maestro Frizzi, the F2F guys, Daniele De Gemini and everyone involved in this journey for making it happen. For us it is a dream come true and in a way a tribute to the memory of the man bringing us together through his movies, Lucio Fulci.”

The long awaited split LP between Polish progressive grinders ANTIGAMA and Swedish horror/prog rock masters ANIMA MORTE is unleashed!

The Polish quartet offers one new song and “Malcontento Popolare” cover song by Alessandro Alessandroni, famous multi-instrumentalist and film score maker from Italy. For those who are familiar with prolific discography of ANTIGAMA know it’s not the first time they pay homage to horror music. Nearly ten years ago the band recorded “Zombi” cover song by Italian progressive rock band GOBLIN. ANTIGAMA’s side was recorded and mixed at JNS Studio, Warsaw, Poland with Paweł Grabowski late 2015/early 2016. Mastered by James Plotkin (O.L.D., REGURGITATION, ATOMSMASHER, KHANATE).

Here is what the guitarist Sebastian Rokicki says about this release: “Being the worshippers of the old Italian giallo/horror/library soundtracks, Karol/Selfmadegod Records and myself are proud to share new Antigama release with one of the most outstanding bands nowadays cultivating the old tradition of the genre: Anima Morte! Our side of the split will include the cover of Maestro Alessandro Alessandroni’s “Malconento Popolare” and a brand new Antigama song “Brothers.”

ANIMA MORTE is a Swedish cinematic instrumental horror group established in 2004. Their music is progressive rock / horror soundtrack / instrumental, continuing the legacy of bands and artists like Goblin, Fabio Frizzi, Bruno Nicolai, Stelvio Cipriani, Rick Wakeman, Ennio Morricone and the likes. With three full albums, two 7″EPs and contributions to various compilations this is going to be the first split 12″LP in the band’s discography. The band recorded two songs especially for this release: one new original song and a cover of the theme from the 1977 movie ‘Il Gatto Dagli Occhi Di Giada’ (aka Watch Me When I Kill) by Trans Europa Express.

Here is what the Anima Morte founder Fredrik says about this release: “We have always loved to do unexpected collaborations and this one is no exception! It is a great example of how two seemingly different musical acts can come together and make cinematic sense. Anima Morte is very honored to be a part of this exclusive release with Antigama made reality on vinyl by Selfmadegod Records.”

The split is released in regular LP jacket with 5 postcards, flyer reproduction, sticker, and huge A1 poster! Strictly limited to 500 copies only, 100 on red wax and 400 on black wax.

The third album by Swedish ANIMA MORTE sees the band evolving their moody instrumental songs one step further into the cinematic realm. Rooted in 70’s rock music with symphonic and experimental elements. Following deeper and more complex compositions the tense and melancholic atmosphere contrasts strong and thrilling musical motifs. Using real vintage and rare instruments like the Mellotron, Electric Pianos, Organs and different stringed instruments they create a thick wall of sound that is very much alive!
