Limited 180 gram premium vinyl LP pressing packaged in deluxe (UV-coated) gatefold jacket that features newly-commissioned artwork plus plethora of color stills inside. With horror/fantasy film music on vinyl finding particular popularity, Intrada gives Richard Band’s score for 1986 Empire Pictures fright fest Troll a spin. Richard Band scores for orchestra, chorus, produces his score not in the norm as series of short film cues but in then (and still) rare form of an extended five-movement "symphony". Lengthy sequences are cohesive, flavorful, playful, exciting, tuneful, intense... and more! Centerpiece is Band's "Cantos Profanae" featuring solo child's voice, large chorus intoning English, Italian, Latin text plus orchestra, all hurtling forward in lively, rhythmically dynamic fashion. Interesting composition device: Band creates considerable excitement, intensity not through dissonance but courtesy ever-increasing density in his orchestrations and harmonic vernacular which plays almost entirely in minor. Family film makers Charles and Albert Band produce, John Carl Beuchler directs, numerous familiar faces appear including Michael Moriarty (playing Harry Potter, Sr.), Noah Hathaway (playing Harry Potter, Jr.!), June Lockhart, Anne Lockhart, Sonny Bono, Shelley Hack, Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
This vinyl is packaged with a two-part folding sleeve.
