elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth.
Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post.
In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.
Information about the origin and all other details regarding this album are extremely scarce. The music appears to be isolated and ripped from the 5.1 surround sound of a DVD of The Invaders, a science-fiction television show which premiered in 1967, and ran for only two seasons. Dominic Frontiere, perhaps better known for composing the music for the television show "The Outer Limits", composed the theme and incidental music for the entire series. I picked this album up several years back on a torrent site, and have attempted to track down where this album originated from ever since, without much luck I might add. The only other place I have seen it mentioned is when the exact same release was posted a few months ago on the Soundtrack Universe blog. In his post johndoever states:
"I’ve been waiting for a soundtrack release of this TV series ever since I first saw it (re-runs in the 70′s), however the rights are owned by CBS through Paramount Pictures and they have yet to release a soundtrack. So where did this soundtrack come from your thinking, well I cannot remember exactly, I downloaded it years back, there is no tracklisting since its not an official release, but each track is perfect 320kb quality, i can vouch for that personally, whom ever the original owner is, they have done a top notch job bringing this about. In total there are 94 tracks, that spans the entire 2 TV seasons i’m guessing. Usually “Unofficial” soundtracks are ripped/extracted from the actual TV DVD’s, and you can tell, but this is different, I’ve listened to every track, and theres no words to describe the quality of this." - johndoever
Ordinarily I wouldn't post this soundtrack due to the complete lack of information available. However, I am posting this today for two reasons. The first, and most obvious, being that this soundtrack contains an amazing selection of music composed by Dominic Frontiere, which fits in perfectly with our ongoing theme here at DM, "Sci-Fi September." Second, I'm hoping that someone might step forward and provide some information about this release. I have a feeling that it may have been posted on the now defunct Master Cylinder blog, or perhaps one of the subforums of Isbum's World, and I'm hoping someone can confirm this for me. It would also be great to have a track listing for this release. If you have any information about this release, please leave a comment.
As with my previous posts, I'm keeping this brief since I'm very short on time. I hope that the links I provided above will satisfy your curiosity about the composer, Dominic Frontiere, and the show itself.
Year of Release: Unknown Label: NA / Unofficial Release Genres: Soundtrack, Science-Fiction Bitrate: 320kbps
