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.
Stigmata is a 1999 film starring Patricia Arquette and Gabriel Byrne. I saw this movie when it came out, but I don't remember much about it. Must not have been too impressive if I can't remember a thing. I looked it up and the story has something to do with the Catholic church and all kinds of cover-ups about bizarre supernatural happenings. It probably is not really a horror movie. Anyway, the important part is the music.
This promo release is by Czech-born composer Elia Cmiral. I don't really know of his other music, other than Battlefield Earth (terrible movie, interesting score). Cmiral has made a big impression on me though with Stigmata. It is very dark and moody electronic music, that goes from sinister ambience to violent unrest, with the occasional female vocals to enhance the emotional impact. If you are familiar with Graeme Revell's The Crow, you can expect a similar flavor here. I am almost tempted to say this is better than The Crow, but I won't go that far. It will suffice to say that it is damn good and I have no doubt that regular readers of Digital Meld0wn will appreciate it.
