In recent years a number of classic horror and science fiction soundtracks have found new life on vinyl. Often remastered, repackaged and re-released in limited quantities; these albums have proven hugely popular with audiophiles and collectors alike! Even rock bands like Goblin are releasing exclusive vinyl editions of their work at concerts and events.
Zombie fans especially have had plenty to look forward to; including an exquisitely remastered version of George Romero’s 1985 classic Day Of The Dead courtesy of Waxworks Records. And, coming this December, limited edition picture discs from Spacelab9 featuring the amazing music of Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.
Coming to planet earth during November 2013, record label imprint Spacelab9 makes its debut with vinyl releases for the official score to AMC and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s hit series and Emmy® winning drama BREAKING BAD followed by the official soundtrack to multi-award winning fan-favorite drama series THE WALKING DEAD. A limited picture disc LP edition for each will be available exclusively from lifestyle retail giant HOT TOPIC, hitting store shelves on November 26th and December 3rd respectively, available while supplies last.
Despite technically being reissues, these brand new releases are highly sought after and often sell out immediately. For example, recent editions of Maniac, Halloween II and Re-Animator have quickly become hot collector’s items. And with the recent explosion in zombie popularity, every classic film is being snatched up for release by wonderful labels like Death Waltz Recording Co. and Mondo!
So keep your eyes open this holiday season. And for more information on the special limited editions of these classic zombie soundtracks, or the wonderful record labels releasing them, simply click on the links in the story above!
