hauntingly beautiful, gorgeously macabre vignettes of psychic instability spinning in sonic uncertainty. a british sound engineer loses his grip on reality, absorbed in the terror of the italian horror film he’s been enlisted master. who is murdered and who is murderer? Scalded screams and Goblin cacklery, Equestrian waltzes and Serpent’s serenades. a wistful soundtrack of sinister intent. such Tender Damnation


Thurston Hunger says

Insanely beautiful and beautifully insane. The themes for Collatina provide a sweet spot in the madhouse. A haunting swan song for Trish Keenan's ghost (and a promising entrance for James Cargill into soundtrack work).
