I can’t count the number of times that Big Gay Horror Fan and his demon slaughtering comrades, Apocalyptic Kitten and Deadly Johnson, wished that they had a soundtrack for their adventures. I mean, who doesn’t need a bit of background music for when the toothless hordes of granny zombies attack or when the slavering packs of hell hounds give birth to those drooling, satanic poodles of death? Well, with the massive slab of muscular musicality that is “Nervously Counting Rosary Beads”, we may have just found our theme.
This opus, clocking in at 29:24, from Midwest powerhouse Guzzlemug begins with a choral chant and background themes that would fit perfectly behind a neighborhood slumber party involving multiple viewings of the original Omen, along with Charlton Heston’s The Awakening, followed up with a healthy dose of The Unholy, that sordid priest horror starring Ben Cross.
This ominous beginning leads into a section featuring stabbing guitar trills and heart plucking string work that ultimately builds into a Manson cult cacophony.
Next, a chorus of zombified Moon Children introduces us to the seductive thrills of the night. This leads into a throbbing segment of fleshy visceral beats. This final segment would work perfectly in any film project that Rob Zombie dreams up or on that inevitable re-boot of the Saw film series.
Yep, amazingly talented Shane Prendiville and crew (Tom Kelly, Charlie Werber) create a world of many journeys, here, and each is blacker and more fascinating than the one that precedes it.
