Happy halloween!

What other way to celebrate then with the sounds of arms and heads being chopped off, breaking and twisting of necks, stakes being driven through hearts and sizzling branding irons on flesh. And that’s just a few titles of the near 100 sound effects on this record. You can see all the wonderfully explicit titles on this tracklist.

The sounds are split up in six themes:

  1. Execution and Torture
  2. Monsters and Animals
  3. Creaking Doors and Grave Digging
  4. Musical Effects and Footsteps
  5. Vocal Effects and Heartbeats
  6. Weather, Atmosphere and Bells

Here’s a preview:

Enjoy! (43mb)

Oh, by the way. When listening to this record I was delighted to hear many of the horror samples used by ‘Batfinks’ on their 1989 album: ‘Wazzed and Blasted’, which happens to be one of my favorite psychobilly albums!
