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.
Lovecraft fans rejoice, for today you get awesome music from The Resurrected by director Dan 'O Bannon (RIP), which was based on The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. If you have not seen it, and I am sure most H.P. Lovecraft fans have, it is highly recommended that you do. The whole production is top-notch, and Richard Band delivers once again. If you missed the previous Lovecraft/Band albums on this blog, take a minute to do a search because his work is excellent and criminally underrated.
Here is some info in the liner notes from the composer: Upon receiving this assignment, one of the elements I found most intriguing was how I could use a combination of orchestral instruments and electronics to create and ever-widening effect as they descended into the bowels beneath Charles Ward's house. I loved the fact that as they descended to one level, there was still another lower level and another, and so on. This allowed me to use such devices as having the clarinets, bassoons and celli echoing pizzacato effects, then turning into bass clarinets, contrabassoons and basses when reaching yet another level. With each level reaching deeper and deeper, I attempted to have the music follow suit, getting lower, slower and more menacing but always trying to maintain a sense of impending discovery. The orchestral devices mixed with the thematic structure climax upon reaching the lowest level, where the mutations resided, thus allowing me to once again reverse direction musically as they hurriedly ascend... escaping the inevitable fate of the ancient tomb.
