Dream Weapons present: IT WELCOMES YOU C90

The three-day observance of Allhallowtide is upon us - which felt like the perfect excuse to locate and ever so slightly rework/improve my pre-dream weapons «horrorscore-mix». It was a pleasantly unpleasant revisitation containing one dark or dimly lit gem after the other. I think you might enjoy it too. Back in 2015 I wrote:

-I went for scores with a Fabio Frizzi/John Carpenter/Goblin sort of synthified keyboard driven approach but (largely) avoided all those themes «everyone» already knows - such as Suspiria, (the original) Halloween, The Beyond etc. There's probably just as much melancholic beauty as there is dark electrofunk here. Some of you are probably familiar with a few of these tunes already - but you never heard them presented like this -Moahaahaahaaaaa…!

…Oh, the title is inspired by The Creepshow Welcomes You (opening titles) in combination with the modern day classic It Follows. The thought of a something evil that appears welcoming at first was sort of chilling.

    1. You're welcome & It welcomes you, Il Commendatore!

  3. Hi!
    Did you actually produce tapes and do you send/sell them?
    If not do I have your permission to put it on tape and print that wonderful cover? It makes me think of a friend and I'd like to make him a gift.

    1. Hi Animal Sweatshirt,

      We've (or rather Sadhu Sadhu) have only made actual tapes of about half of these for personal use/enjoyment - as in one or two unque copies. You'd certainly have my permission and I'd be delighted if you put it on tape/print the cover.
