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.
In 2007, Richard Band was given the Howie Award for lifetime achievement in music composition at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, Oregon. He brought with him a compilation of his compositions for Lovecraft inspired films, limited to 60 copies. I had the good fortune of befriending someone who attended that festival and scored a copy. At first, I wasn't going to post this because of the repetition here, since most of these pieces appear on albums that have been posted on this blog in the recent past. I changed my mind for a few reasons. First of all, it is a great compilation despite the fact that it is missing cues from From Beyond which is arguably Band's best horror score. Secondly, it features the music from the "Dreams in the Witch House" episode of Masters of Horror, directed by Stuart Gordon in 2005. To my knowledge this music isn't available anywhere else. This was a return to horror and Lovecraft for Band, after a seven year break during which he worked mostly on TV and family oriented stuff. The results are excellent with Band utilizing a small group of chanters, to classic bone-chilling effect. Finally, there are two excellent tracks from Bride of Re-Animator. Enjoy!
