We’re super happy to be the first place to announce Mondo’s next LP, Fabio Frizzi’s stunning soundtrack for Lucio Fulci’s The Beyond. Considered one of the greatest horror soundtracks of the 80’s, Frizzi’s work here is bold, dynamic, and downright timeless. Imagine what it must’ve been like hearing this one 30+ years ago, especially as the backdrop to faces being melted by acid. Soundtracks of this magnitude don’t come around often, and many things since have seemed tame in comparison. A proper vinyl release is more than warranted. The 180 gram LP will be limited to 1500 copies (500 of which come on clear turquoise vinyl) and comes packaged in a beautiful gatefold jacket designed by Rob Jones. The audio has been remastered for vinyl by James Plotkin. The official street date is May 22nd, but the online release may come sooner. It’s best to follow Mondo on Twitter, and keep an eye on Mondotees.com.
