Overview

From the 1930s to the 1970s, directors of horror films used mostly orchestral music to accompany dialogue. But in the 1980s and 1990s, horror movie soundtracks often contained a lot of heavy metal and alternative rock. And in many cases, the soundtracks were better than the film themselves. Even if you were of the opinion that most 1980s and 1990s horror flicks were pointless examples of style over substance -- even if you knew that the latest Jason or Freddy Krueger film wasn't a fraction as well done as the classic Dark Shadows television series of 1966-1971 or the great Dracula movies of the 1930s and 1940s -- you could be impressed with the soundtrack. Whether or not you saw Demon Knight or even cared to see it, there's no question that the soundtrack is generally impressive. From the brutal thrash metal of Megadeth's "Diadems" and Sepultura's "Policia" to the abrasive industrial rock of Ministry's "Tonight We Murder" and the angry post-punk alternative rock of the Rollins Band's "Fall Guy," this CD packs an extremely hard-knuckled punch. The soundtrack's lone rap offering is the Gravediggaz' "1-800-Suicide," which favors an ominous atmosphere instead of brute force, but has enough attitude to fit in nicely. Never mind what you thought of Demon Knight -- those who appreciate heavy rock will appreciate the soundtrack.
