RIYL: Horror Soundtracks
Well here’s a creepy soundtrack for a creepy movie that still haunts my dreams.
The packaging on this one is superb and at limited to 666 copies it’s the find of attention to detail that excites collectors like me.
Cinedelic has been killing it lately and this is no exception.
GIAN FRANCO REVERBERI - RITI, MAGIE NERE E SEGRETE ORGE NEL TRECENTO O.S.T.
Format: limited numbered edition gatefold embossed LP 666 copies + multicolor vinyl + free Mp3
Catalogue: CNST 705
AKA: The Reincarnation of Isabel / Black Magic Rites
Finally, after 45 years, comes the soundtrack, from the original master tapes, of the truly mad and weird exploitation euro-erotic-horror cult movie filmed in 1971 (but released only in 1973) by Renato Polselli (Ralph Brown). Incomprehensible and inconceivable beyond the reach of the human intellect, Riti, magie nere e segrete orge nel trecento... shows a cult of pseudo-Satanists in tight red jumpsuit and black cape requiring the blood and eyes of seven virgins in order to resurrect the corpse of the persecuted witch Isabella (Rita Calderoni), who was impaled and burned at the stake some 500 years ago. A precious nonsensical gem, with nervous zooming, nude women's breasts in a colorful scenery, and an overly cryptic storyline; loony.
The soundtrack encapsulates, in its fifteen total tracks (including the 2 released at the time on 45rpm vinyl), all typical sound elements of the โscary musicโ โof the seventies but with a hard lysergic touch of madness, experimentation and psychedelia. Female vocals give out agonizing and distressing groans, tribal African rhythmic, turned over words, plucked stings of the piano, baroque elements and lot of effects makes this soundtrack a cult object, not even to mention the obsessive care of the packaging.
Released in a limited edition of 666 numbered copies in gatefold heavy thick cover with front cover design by Michele Targonato with embossed flames. Bi-color red-blue vinyl. Includes free MP3.
