Nostra Signora delle Tenebre

A couple of weeks ago, i was fortunate enough to check out the second annual poster, art, and music-palooza that is Mondo-Con.  As per usual, i emptied my pockets for all manner of goodies...namely horror movie soundtracks.  While digging through the import albums that Death Waltz main man Spencer Hickman brought with him from across the pond, i came across an interesting compilation album called "Nostra Signora delle Tenebre" from Backwards Records featuring a whole slew of weirdo experimental artists performing covers of music from old Italian films, specifically from horror flicks and giallos.  We're talking stuff by Morricone, Fidenco, Goblin, Frizzi, and more.  They may as well have just stuck a big, neon sticker that said TOMMY on the thing, because purchasing the record was a total no-brainer.  Just listen to Heroin in Tahiti's "Nuda per Satana" and instantly want more, more, more.  You can currently purchase a copy (stateside) over at Mondo.
