Mondo Dropping 'Army of Darkness' OST Vinyl at MondoCon

Deadites, Necronomicon readers and film score fans all have something to look forward to at Austin's MondoCon this year, with movie music house Mondo having confirmed that the event will celebrate the score to Army of Darkness with a limited edition vinyl release.

A blog post from the imprint confirms that they're making Joseph LoDuca and Danny Elfman's score to the '90s horror-comedy a big part of the 2015's MondoCon, which runs October 3 and 4. They'll be delivering pressings of the soundtrack on "Baby Blue & Black Vortex Swirl"-coloured vinyl, as well as on traditional black wax.

The score was mostly handled by LoDuca, though the "March Of The Dead Theme" was composed by Elfman (Batman, Beetlejuice). It was performed by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra & Chorus. We'll have to wait until the vinyl arrives, but hopefully the new vinyl edition has mastered the tracks to make them about as loud as film protagonist Ash's beloved boom stick.

The artwork, meanwhile, had previously been used for an exclsuive Mondo poster in 2014. You can see the re-purposed piece, which was prepped by artist Richey Beckett, up above.
