Press Release from La-La Land Records: La-La Land Records and Paramount Pictures proudly presents the original motion picture score to the 1990 Paramount Pictures big-screen horror chiller STEPHEN KING’S GRAVEYARD SHIFT, starring David Andrews, Kelly Wolf and Brad Dourif, and directed by Ralph S. Singleton. Composers Anthony Marinelli and Brian Banks (NICE GIRLS DON’T EXPLODE, YOUNG GUNS, INTERNAL AFFAIRS) unleash a wildly inventive, ahead-of-its-time electronic musicscape that engulfs the listener in a subterranean bed of atmospheric terror. Vocals and trumpet blend thrillingly into the mix, resulting in a striking and experimental score that is pitch-perfect for this underrated genre film, which has now achieved bonafide cult status. This album presentation also features alternate bonus tracks, including the film’s trailer music composed and performed by John Beal. Produced by Dan Goldwasser and mastered by James Nelson, this limited edition CD release of 1000 units showcases in-depth liner notes by writer Daniel Schweiger that take you behind the film and its score, featuring new comments from the composers and director Ralph S. Singleton. The wonderfully sinister art design is by Goldwasser.
