Death Waltz Recording Company are proud to be unleashing one of the great unheralded electronic scores. Unavailable since the film's release in 1982, SUSAN JUSTIN's music for Forbidden World--produced by the legendary ROGER CORMAN--mixes the electronic influences of the time with splashes of new wave, creating a score that fuses the eerie tonalities and avant-garde sensibility of Alien with the straight-up funk of Assault On Precinct 13. Birthed from this is a cult classic score that deserves to be held up alongside the works of Richard Band and Alan Howarth. What immediately stands out from the score is the amazing main theme, a melodic groove firmly embedded in the `80s synth movement, complete with creepy vocal effects overlaying its driving keyboard line. Originally a parody that Corman turned into a straight horror, the score is used typically to create tension with isolated piano and harsh electronic tones, acting as a stereotypical precursor to the horror moments. Amidst all this is also the `Blaster Beam', a unique instrument famous for its use in Jerry Goldsmith's Star Trek - The Motion Picture. A fantastic voyage amongst the stars full of offbeat melodies and alien tones, this is a musical world that demands multiple visits. Pressed on 180-gram black, blue and white splatter vinyl and housed housed in a gatefold heavyweight tip on casebound sleeves with poster and booklet.
