- Leonard, Alain / Wank, Alex : Omaggio a Lucio Fulci E Fabio Frizz (Original Soundtrack)
- Artist: LEONARD,ALAIN / WANK,ALEX
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 8/1/2012
The eager and upcoming Cineploit label has just added two limited edition vinyl releases to their ever-expanding arsenal of musical mayhem, inspired and influenced by the unique madness of Italian genre cinema. The work of Alain Leonard and Alex Wank is comparatively progressive when it comes to the sound achieved on the duo's tribute to the films of Italian gore godfather Lucio Fulci. Leonard and Wank tackle themes from two different composers on here, Fabio Frizzi's iconic score to Fulci's 1981 masterpiece the Beyond and Walter Rizatti's creepy and atmospheric efforts for the director's House By the Cemetery from the same year. Leonard and Wank successfully filter the essence of Frizzi and Rizatti's score into a psychedelic haze of beats, samples and effects, integrated seamlessly into the composer's original themes and melodies. The effect as a whole is hypnotic and impressive, particularly in how both men have essentially manipulated these tracks into something which they can proudly claim is their own, twisted musical creation. The most impressive aspect of these limited edition (350 pressed) releases, however, is how much care and attention Cineploit has clearly to the finer details, with both releases displaying a devotion to the artwork and presentation essential for winning over the hearts and minds of their fellow Eurocult fanatics.
