Happy Early Halloween!

As far as I’m concerned, it’s never too early to get into the spooky spirit. Halloween shouldn’t be confined to 24 measly hours, it should have its own season, as retailers no doubt grasp since Halloween aisles usually appear a week or two after school begins. Today I have for you two tracks, one I made by sampling several songs from the forgettable 2007 horror film ’30 Days of Night,’ and the other is an original from the same film. One unforgettable thing about the film is its musical score created by a certain Brian Reitzell, who isn’t so under the radar as I first thought having participated in scores for such films as ‘The Virgin Suicides,’ ‘Lost in Translation,’ and ‘Thumbsucker’ to name a few. The ’30 Days of Night’ soundtrack is quite impressive utilizing live drums and electronics to create a haunting, foreboding atmosphere. I like to think if a vampire were after me, I wouldn’t hear orchestra hits, it’d be something more like this:

Mp3: Brian Reitzell – Drums in the DArk (Braveyard Mix)

Mp3: Brian Reitzell – Barrow Burns
