Press Release:

On October 18, Immortal Records will release the bruising original soundtrack to the highly anticipated Masters of Horror series, a 13-episode anthology directed by today's most renowned horror directors. The specially-priced, extravagantly packaged, double-disc will be comprised entirely of brand new and previously unreleased material from 30 of today's top metal, hardcore, punk and rock acts, including Mudvayne, Buckethead featuring Serj Tankian of System of a Down, Thursday, Shadows Fall, Mastodon, In Flames, Alkaline Trio and Avenged Sevenfold. The series will debut October 28 on Showtime and will run for 13 weeks into 2006. It will be produced by IDT Entertainment, Industry Entertainment and Nice Guy Productions. The soundtrack is available for preorder here and will arrive one day before release date.

"From the first time I heard about this series, I was looking forward to it," says Shadows Fall guitarist Matt Bachand, whose band contributes the searing "This is my Own" to the soundtrack. "I am a gorehound at heart," he continues, "and am very excited about this opportunity to be part of it. Just to be associated with such legendary directors is truly amazing."

Many of the biggest horror film directors from the past 30 years were also excited about the anthology. In addition to top American directors like John Carpenter ("Halloween"), Tope Hooper ("Texas Chainsaw Massacre"), John Landis ("An American Werewolf in London"), Mick Garris ("The Stand"), Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, Bubba Ho-tep). Stuart Gordon ("Re-Animator") and William Malone ("FearDotCom"), the series attracted several huge international directors, including Dario Argento ("Suspiria") and Takashi Miike ("Audition").

The complete list of artists for the "Masters of Horror" soundtrack reads like the top tier lineups for Ozzfest, Warped and Sounds of the Underground: Mudvayne, Shadows Fall, Thursday, Serj Tankian with Buckethead, Avenged Sevenfold, In Flames, The Bled, Mastodon, Every Time I Die, Bloodsimple, Death by Stereo, From Autumn to Ashes, Matchbook Romance, Andrew W.K., Alkaline Trio, Norma Jean, It Dies Today, Fear Beyond the March of Flames, Armor For Sleep, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Funeral For a Friend, Murder By Death, Fall River, Rise Against, The Bronx!, Yesterday's Rising, Gratitude, Bear Vs. Shark, A Change of Pace, Bedlight for Blue Eyes. The all-star lineup boasts aggregate sales of well over 15 million albums.

"Masters of Horror" marks the first time major directors of extreme cinema have been matched up with artists of extreme music, and the results are both chilling and breathtaking. "Horror is to cinema what rock n' roll is to music: rebellious, transgressive, loud and abrasive," says series Executive Producer Garris of the important roll music plays in the Masters of Horror series. "And the sound of horror is every bit as important as the vision. Horror can be quiet and sneak up on you, and just give you a chill. Or it can grab you by the throat and rip out your trachea."

Indeed, the link between horror films and the music created by artists on the "Masters of Horror" soundtrack is inextricable. And while many scary movies have incorporated rock songs in their soundtracks, most of those albums sound like radio rock compilations. "Masters of Horror" is more like the score to a pounding, atmospheric nightmare.

"The aesthetic of horror movies both classic and contemporary serve as wells of inspiration for Alkaline Trio," says frontman Matt Skiba, whose band provides the spiteful, tuneful "We Can Never Break Up" to the soundtrack. "The subject matter often finds it's way into our lyrics, and we quite enjoy watching horror films on tour."

"I'm a big horror fan, mostly of George Romero and Dario Argento," adds Thursday singer Geoff Rickly," whose group created a haunting acoustic version of "Division St." "I've Loved horror ever since I was a little kid and now as a grown-up, I can appreciate the social and political allegories the stories tell."

Masters of Horror grew out of an informal bi-monthly dinner attended by many of the horror genre's most highly regarded directors. Garris transformed their collective desire to work together into reality, and will serve as the showrunner for the series. The series was developed by Garris along with executive producers Andrew Deane and Keith Addis, and is an IDT Entertainment production.
