The Roost (France)
The Roost - Angriff der Fledermäuse (Deutschland) (DVD title)
Limited edition of 500 copies.
Our third album with acclaimed composer Jeff Grace (The Last Winter), this release features the two scores he has written for director Ti West: his new thriller, Trigger Man, and 2005's cult hit The Roost, a score previously only available as a download. Continuing to impress with his highly original voice, Grace has composed a truly eerie score for Trigger Man, "a story of three hunters who mysteriously became the hunted," employing minimalist techniques and making extensive use of echo delay throughout the film - Trigger Man is a score that is remarkable in that it is emotionally intense despite the fact that it's musically restrained.
More of a wild ride is the inventive and avant garde score for The Roost, which was hailed by reviewers when it came out originally as a MovieScore Media download album in 2006: "I have no problem calling The Roost one of the most satisfying and memorable horror scores of the past few years," Soundtrack.net wrote, and Rue Morgue wrote: "Nostalgic and brilliantly inventive, Grace goes beyond the physical limitations of his string quartet to create an extraordinarily organized collage of shrilling violins, nasty celli and close-mic'ed Celtic percussion."
