Michael Wandmacher
13 SINS (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
SWR14006

Co-inciding with the US theatrical release of Daniel Stamm’s horror thriller starring Ron Perlman, Mark Webber and Pruitt Taylor Vince, Screamworks Records will release Michael Wandmacher’s eerie and highly effective score for the film which was previously known as Angry Little God. This is MovieScore Media and Screamworks’ third release of Wandmacher’s music following The Killing Floor (2008) and The Last Exorcism: Part 2 (2013). Creepy and suspenseful just like those two, and featuring a truly unique sound palette, 13 Sins further establishes Wandmacher as one of the strongest voices in horror film scoring.

The Newton Brothers
PROXY (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
SWR14007

Paying tribute to the legendary Bernard Herrmann, and perhaps even more to the 1970s horror film scoring of Pino Donaggio, The Newton Brothers’ string-dominated score for Zack Parker’s Proxy is possibly this year’s biggest film music surprise! The stylish score, which kicks off with the spine-chilling ‘Prelude for Proxy’, is as far away as you can get from the typical low budget genre score. This psychological thriller about a woman who looses her baby following a brutal attack features music that is dark and mesmerizing and employs a lot of “classic” horror film scoring tricks that will remind listeners of such genre classics as Psycho and Carrie (the film itself has also been compared to early Brian de Palma films). With this score, The Newton Brothers (Detachment, Setup and High School) will get their big break-through in soundtrack circles. Our digital release of the score coincides with IFC Midnight’s limited theatrical release of the film in the US on April 18.

Rob Simonsen
THE FINAL MEMBER (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
MMS14024

Following the trials and tribulations of the Icelandic Phallological Museum – the world’s only penis museum – and its curator’s quest to find one elusive penis to complete his collection: the human specimen, The Final Member is a fascinating and entertaining documentary by Jonas Bekhor and Zach Math. Following the theatrical release of the film in the US  on April 18, MovieScore Media releases the original score by Rob Simonsen, who worked extensively with Academy Award-winning composer Mychael Danna on films such as Life of Pi, Little Miss Sunshine and 500 Days of Summer and whose solo scoring credits include The Way Way Back, The Spectacular Now and LOL. His engaging music for The Final Member features up-beat chamber music, quirky riffs and quasi-heroic themes as well as genuinely heart-warming underscoring.

Jeff Grace
HELLBENDERS (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
SWR14003

MovieScore Media and Screamworks Records have released a handful of ingenious horror scores penned by Jeff Grace, including The Last Winter, Stake Land and The Innkeepers. Grace’s latest score is for J.T. Petty’s Hellbenders, a hilarious horror comedy about the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints, a team of blasphemous ministers who live in a constant state of debauchery, working to drag the worst of demons back to Hell. As always, Grace’s music is both entertaining and musically interesting, and just like I Sell the Dead, it effectively combines straight-forward horror action scoring with tongue-in-cheek musical movements. A must have for any fan of Jeff Grace’s music!

Gus Reyes
THE DARK SIDE OF LIGHT (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
MMS14007/KRONCD040

This powerful psychological thriller based on the true story of a serial killer who was sentenced to an electric chair execution and survived it.  This criminal justifies his murderers in the belief he’s a God’s chosen that has fulfilled a liberation mission of his victims. Using a symbolic language, this story exposes “Actions that prove killing in God’s name is an excuse to cover atrocious crimes”. Gus Reyes’ music is a very insightful journey through Memo’s state of mind. It is sad, dark and obscure, but sad above anything else. The composer choses the harp and the piano in this case to create an ostinato that portrays the movement of the main character’s thoughts in his voyage of becoming a religious serial killer.  Sacred music has been a great inspiration and it culminates in the Requiem. A very sensible and emotional score and a name to remember: Gus Reyes.
