Beyond Fest, Mondo, Death Waltz Recording Co. present FRIZZI2FULCI LIVE with Fabio Frizzi

Legendary composer Fabio Frizzi comes to Los Angeles for the first time ever to perform his horror classics live. Complete with his 8-piece Frizzi2Fulci Orchestra, Fabio will perform for one night only on Sunday, October 4th at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

Beyond Fest have partnered with Mondo and Death Waltz Recording Co. to bring the Italian maestro to Los Angeles where he performing suites from Lucio Fulci’s classic Italian horror films including ZOMBI 2 (AKA ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS), SEVEN NOTES IN BLACK, THE BEYOND, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, MANHATTAN BABY and more. Orchestral performances will also be accompanied by live visuals derived from Fulci’s iconic filmography.

In addition to Frizzi2Fulci Live, fans will also be treated to a very special screening of THE BEYOND immediately after the live performance. To celebrate Fabio’s arrival in Los Angeles, Grindhouse Releasing are generously sharing their private print of Fulci’s gothic masterpiece.

This rarely seen 35mm print is the fully uncensored and unrated director’s cut, in scope.

“We are delighted to bring Fabio, one of the undisputed masters of Italian horror soundtracks, to North America,” said Mondo Music label head, Spencer Hickman. “We’ve been trying to bring him here for two years, that he will perform for the first time on US soil with his live tribute show to Italian director Lucio Fulci makes it incredibly special for both Fabio and fans alike.”

“This is a great opportunity to tell my story in America, the story of an Italian composer and his journey through sound and cinema. I’m excited to share the sights and sounds of Lucio Fulci’s and to perform for US fans that have been supportive for the last 40 years of my career. It’s an emotion that is hard to explain,” said Frizzi of the upcoming shows.

Highly influential to this day, Fabio Frizzi is one of the most celebrated Italian film composers, and respected in the same iconic pantheon as Ennio Morricone, Bruno Nicolai, Goblin and Gianni Ferrio.

Frizzi’s influence has been cited by a vast range of contemporary artists ranging from Boards Of Canada to Wu Tang’s RZA, and he is heavily referenced by the rising stars of synth-horror including Umberto and Zombi. Frizzi’s work also resonates with cinephiles as Quentin Tarantino used the theme from SEVEN NOTES IN BLACK for his soundtrack to KILL BILL VOL 1.

Beyond Fest and Death Waltz Records Present HO! HO! HELL!

SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT + CHRISTMAS EVIL Death Waltz Records Release
Featuring Cast! Crew! Krampus’! Donuts! Nuns! Snow! And all sorts of other Christmas carnage!

Bring the family and come celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with two of the most infamous shockers ever committed to celluloid.

Enjoying its 30th anniversary, SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT returns to the big screen on glorious 35mm, courtesy of the American Genre Film Archive.

After drawing the ire of parents, critics and its distributor, SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT quickly became the stuff of lurid legend as a homicidal Santa stabs, slashes and slaughters his way through Christmas Eve. Virtually every moral taboo is shattered in a wild 85 minutes that brings the warm glow of festive fear to one and all.

Not content with just one sacrilegious screening, we’re doubling down with the film John Waters described as “the greatest Christmas movie ever made,” the incomparable CHRISTMAS EVIL.

Molestation and murder are once again high on the holiday wish list as a mentally scarred child grows up to be a homicidal maniac with a penchant for Santa suits.

Rarely seen on the big screen, CHRISTMAS EVIL is a wonderfully dark and twistedly funny indictment of the commercialization of Christmas that is more cutting today than it was upon it’s release.

Copies of both soundtracks will be available to purchase on-site.

Immediately following SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT there will be a Q&A with cast and crew of SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT and CHRISTMAS EVIL director Lewis Jackson, followed by a signing session of both records.

Deathwaltz CEO A Dance Commander

Breakdancing virtuoso and CEO of Deathwaltz Records, Spencer Hickman, was recently spotted at the Duke @ Film4 FrightFest Film Party in a pure state of dance-related euphoria vaguely reminiscent of the Dionysian Mysteries.

Utilizing physics and the untold secrets of “the funk,” Hickman propelled his prone frame along the stage floor in the style of 80’s classic “the worm” before dozens of delighted filmmakers and cineastes at the Vue Cinema, in Leicester Square, London. View a snippet of his ecstatic display below.

Beyond the Black Rainbow

Jagjaguwar and Death Waltz Recording Company are excited to announce that they are coreleasing the soundtrack to Panos Cosmatos’ Beyond The Black Rainbow on 9/2. This supposed “lost film” from the 1980s is inspired by obscure scifi movies and classic dystopian fiction. Created by Sinoia Caves, the ongoing project of Jeremy Schmidt a disciple of longform cosmic synthesizer soundscape, and member of Canadian psychandprog pioneersBlack Mountain the soundtrack draws on inspiration from Tangerine Dream, Wendy Carlos andJohn Carpenter. Schmidt artfully navigates the various sonic sensibilities of his predecessors, incoporating touchstones such as mellotron choirs, glacial analogue synthesizer pads and arpeggiators. The result is ominously beauitful, otherworldly and terrifying.

The Death Waltz Recording Company version is exclusive to Europe & housed inside a super glossy Stoughton tip on (Casebound) sleeve complete with an Obi strip and comes on smoked clear and red vinyl with sleevenotes From Jeremy Schmidt this is a recordcollector’s record.

Head over to The AV Club for an exclusive listen.
