Rob Zombie’s Lords of Salem Soundtrack Getting Its First Vinyl Release
Having said that…
Waxwork Records have announced that they’re giving the Salem soundtrack its first vinyl release, and everything about said vinyl release is inarguably cool. If I were a Rob Zombie completist, I’d want this.
Plus, the soundtrack isn’t nearly so mind-numbing as the movie it represents: it includes tracks by Rush, John 5, and The Velvet Underground, plus the fake black metal band Zombie and John 5 created for the movie, Leviathan the Fleeing Serpent.
So this news seemed worth sharing, even if I would never ever ever ever never under any circumstances ever ever ever ever ever recommend you watch The Lords of Salem, like, ever.
Sez a press release:
Waxwork is thrilled to present the debut vinyl release of The Lords of Salem as a deluxe album package featuring 180 gram ‘Satan Rite’ colored vinyl (Blood Red and Blue Butterfly effect with White Splatter), exclusive liner notes by Rob Zombie, new and original art by Robert Sammelin, a 12”x12” 16-page booklet including unreleased set photography from Zombie’s personal archive, a heavyweight art print, printed inner sleeves, and old-style tip-on gatefold jackets with satin coating. Also included is a bonus black metal album by Count Gorgann, lead vocalist of Leviathan the Fleeing Serpent, entitled Corpse Eater: Satanic Misery Live for the Dead. This bonus album features a 2015 live recording at Black Forest Discothek and is pressed to 180 gram black vinyl with an etched B-Side.”
The vinyl Lords of Salem soundtrack will be released a week from today (Friday, April 9). Keep your eyes peeled to the Waxwork website for purchase info.
You can enjoy the music video Leviathan the Fleeing Serpent’s “Crushing the Ritual below.” I’ll also drop the Lords of Salem trailer down there for the curious, although, to reiterate, I would never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever recommend you watch The Lords of Salem, ever.
Zombie also released a new album last month, The Lunar Eclipse Kool-Aid Conspiracy or something like that, it’s too long and I’m too lazy to look it up. Ridiculous title aside, it’s a good album and worth checking out.
