First purchase of 2013: Mondo's limited vinyl reissue of Michael Perilstein's electronic soundtrack to 1983 sci-fi-horror splatterfest The Deadly Spawn, housed in a fetching gatefold sleeve. Mondo's occasional ventures into vinyl have so far escaped the instant-sellout-to-unscrupulous-eBay-flippers trend of their poster series; hopefully that's a trend that continues.
Spawn follows Maniac and The Beyond from Mondo, and the trend of horror soundtrack reissues on nicely packaged vinyl increased last year with a series of fantastic, wallet-assaulting releases from the UK's Death Waltz Recordings. Spawn title music after the jump; review to follow. Watch the entire film here.
