The music is somewhat hard to describe – a mix of beats, original orchestrations, musical samples and horror movie dialogue samples, all combining to create a spooky atmosphere that (I’ve found) is great to play while you need to concentrate on something, but would be just as great playing at a Halloween cocktail party. If you’re a fan of the music of John Carpenter or David Lynch, you’ll find a lot to love, here.
les Morts Gothique swings from very hip to incredibly sinister – the album opens with a track by Dead End Ranch called “Lights Out” which features a sample from Nurse with Wound’s “A Short Dip In The Glory Hole” (you can find/listen to it on YouTube), one of the creepiest sound compositions I’ve ever heard, and used to great effect here. “Grave Desire” by Man With the Spinning Face has a decidedly Depeche Mode by way of King Dude sound, while “Hexarcana” by The Black Spots would make a great theme song for a spooky superhero or secret agent. Throughout the album you’ll hear rumbling thunder, familiar bits of dialogue from your favorite horror movies (and many incredibly obscure ones), and I’m pretty sure I heard the score from the movie Sinister sampled in there, once again to excellent effect.
Here’s a sample track – see what you think:
