'Army of Darkness' Soundtrack Getting Record Store Day Exclusive Vinyl Release

Maybe it's due to the ongoing pandemic, but this year's Record Store Day announcements were rather quiet and the August 29th event is creeping up fast.

While this year's vinyl hoarding festivities are sure to be hindered due to social distancing and many records store choosing to remain closed, there's still quite a few releases to get excited about, one of them being an all-new vinyl release of composer Joe LoDuca's soundtrack for Sam Raimi's 1990 classic Army of Darkness.

Newly remastered by LoDuca, the package also includes new notes and images and is the first ever vinyl release to contain the original movie art.

Varèse Sarabande explains, "Army of Darkness is a continuation of Raimi's Evil Dead series, which LoDuca also composed and also starred Bruce Campbell as Ash. Years later, LoDuca continued to score Evil Dead projects through the Starz series, Ash vs The Evil Dead, which ran from 2015–2018. Army of Darkness is musically distinct, however, in having a secondary composer contribution: Danny Elfman's (Batman, Pee-wee's Big Adventure) killer theme 'March of the Dead.'"

Limited to 2500 copies, the Army of Darkness soundtrack will only be available to purchase through RSD stores. A CD version is also currently available exclusively from Varèse Sarabande's website.

Bruce Campbell to Voice Richard Nixon in Watergate Tapes Indie ’18 1/2’ (Exclusive)

Bruce Campbell will be the voice of President Richard M. Nixon in an indie thriller and dark comedy set in the Watergate era called “18 1/2” as directed by Slamdance Film Festival co-founder Dan Mirvish, Bugeater Films announced Friday.

The film’s live-action cast was also unveiled and stars Willa Fitzgerald, John Magaro, Vondie Curtis Hall, Catherine Curtin and Sullivan Jones. And alongside Campbell in the voice cast are Ted Raimi as Gen. Al Haig and Jon Cryer as H. R. Haldeman.

“18 1/2” is a historical fiction film about the 18 1/2 minutes of audio erased from President Nixon’s Oval Office voice recording system that led to the unraveling of the Watergate scandal. It made the audio’s erasure one of the worst incidents of evidence destruction by a presidential administration and something that’s been ripe for conspiracy theories. Campbell has previously played another President, playing Ronald Reagan on “Fargo,” and his voice will appear throughout the film on Nixon’s various audiotapes.
