THE HORROR LEGACY – Debut New Single

Rome based cinematic horror prog project THE HORROR LEGACY have signed to Time To Kill Records for the release of the debut album “Days of Terror”, due out in February 2022.

The album will contain new interpretations of the main themes of “28 Days Later”, “Cannibal Holocaust”, “The Thing”, “Tubular Bells”, “Zombie 2”, “Phantasm”, “Halloween”, “Inferno”, “Beyond The Darkness”, “Escape from New York”, among others.

The first single “Inferno / Mater Tenebrarum” is now premiering HERE!

The band states: “Everyone in the band is a big fan of progressive rock from the 70’s. Among that kind of bands a special mention is reserved to Emerson, Lake & Palmer, whose keyboard player has been a source of inspiration for lots of musicians, as well as for composers. Keith Emerson was an accomplished soundtrack composer too, and his most famous work has been Dario Argento’s ‘Inferno’. Among the OST music the tracks that stand out are the main titles theme ‘Inferno’, based on sweet piano arpeggios that create an increasing and disturbing atmosphere, and ‘Mater Tenebrarum’, a march with a classical flavor dominated by a strong and fierce opera-esque choir that sings the praises of the ‘Mater Tenebrarum’, main character of the movie. With the help of opera singers as guests, we have chosen to perform a medley of the mentioned tracks, adopting a modern and heavy arrangement more than the original recordings, yet keeping the spirit that permeates Emerson’s creations intact”.

The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Giuseppe RanieriRoberto Fasciani and Titta Tani at MMI Roma Studio.

Many guests are involved: Maestro Fabio Frizzi, one of the greatest composers for horror movies, bassist/keyboardist Dave Neabore from American band DOG EAT DOG, Japanese keyboardist Mirai Kawashima from SIGH and former NECROPHAGIAStian Smorholm (aka Iscariah), former bassist of Norwegian black metal band IMMORTAL, and former NECROPHAGIA and DEAD TO THIS WORLDChuck Sherwood, bassist of INCANTATION and Dome from FULCI!
