Forever Midnight is proud to announce the release of the soundtrack album to 'Coven' (pronounced with a long 'O' like 'woven', not like 'oven') - the legendary 1997 short horror film by Mark Borchardt. Patrick Nettesheim's score is a brooding assortment of dreamlike synths, overdriven guitars, pounding drums and wailing choirs, all run through a charming and creepy home-recorded filter. From the opening, ominous bending bass hits to the final slow-dancing pianos, this thoughtful soundtrack conjures images of dilapidated scarecrows, haunted drive-ins and black-robed fiends - a perfect compliment to Coven's stark black and white imagery and harrowing themes. Mark Borchardt's Coven and it's trialed completion are well known as the subject of the award-winning 1999 documentary American Movie, but Coven stands on its own as a unique artistic achievement - successful as both a strong, beautiful work from Borchardt's storied life in film and as a symbol of the triumph of creativity and drive in the shadow of adverse fortune. First 500 copies include digital download of the film Coven and a page from the Coven screenplay.
