Cipriani, Stelvio – “Gli Orrori Del Castello Di Norimberga” – [Dagored]

billiejoe   11/4/2015   12-inch, Soundtrack

Two disc soundtrack for one of Mario Brava’s least popular films, title translated as Baron Blood. Italian horror film came out in 1972, has castles, woods, resurrecting dead, fog, etc. Side A starts off with normal strings and drums and horn soundtrack, it’s super cheese. Even has some “lalala” vocals. Gets slower and then darker.
B is more piano and darker and “ooooh ooooh” vocals and skronky horns and then faster piano. Perhaps this is the chase scene? Side c is hand drums and wailing guitar like a hippie jam. Then it’s back to upbeat cheery horns and lalala. D is quiet hand drums and horns chilled out then an organ comes in and gives us some old tymey chills and a line of dialog in Italian I can’t make out.
Fun story from wikipedia: “The Well to Hell hoax is an urban legend that circulated the Internet and American tabloids in the late 1990s. The hoax was an audio recording of the sounds of Hell, recorded by seismologists in Siberia. The sounds in the nine-mile deep pit included yells and haunting screams for help from sinners supposedly sent to Hell. The recording, however, was later revealed to have been a cleverly remixed portion of the soundtrack of the movie Baron Blood, with various effects added.”
