Music John Carpenter Resurrects Classic Horror Scores for Greatest Hits Album Published 3 years ago on August 22, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet For those of you who loved the incredible Lost Themes I and II albums, we have another bit of exciting news for you today. Horror Master John Carpenter is set to release a brand new album that will include some of his greatest horror movie scores this October! Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 collects 13 classic themes from Carpenter’s illustrious career together on one volume for the first time. Each theme has been newly recorded with the same collaborators that Carpenter worked with on his hit Lost Themes studio albums: his son, Cody Carpenter, and godson, Daniel Davies. “Anthology is a near-comprehensive survey of John Carpenter’s greatest themes, from his very first movie, the no-budget sci-fi film Dark Star, to 1998’s supernatural Western, Vampires. Those sit alongside the driving, Led Zeppelin-influenced Assault on Precinct 13 theme, Halloween’s iconic 5/4 piano riff, and the eerie synth work of The Fog. Carpenter and his band also cover Ennio Morricone’s bleak, minimalist theme for The Thing.” “We also get vital new recordings of the themes to ’80s classics and fan favorites Big Trouble in Little China, Escape From New York, Christine, and They Live, along with the romantic Starman. The collection is rounded out by the menacing, heavy themes to Prince of Darkness and In the Mouth of Madness, the latter a Metallica-inspired riff originally played for the film by Kinks guitarist Dave Davies, and now played by his son Daniel.” Check out the full list of track: 1. “In the Mouth of Madness” 2. “Assault on Precinct 13” 3. “The Fog” 4. “Prince of Darkness” 5. “Santiago (Vampires)” 6. “Escape From New York” 7. “Halloween” 8. “Porkchop Express (Big Trouble in Little China)” 9. “They Live” 10. “The Thing” 11. “Starman” 12. “Dark Star” 13. “Christine” You can pre-order a copy of the album from Sacred Bones Records on Standard LP, Limited Edition LP, Deluxe Limited Edition LP, or CD. Look for it to debut on October 20!
