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.
Black Christmas is a 2006 remake of a 1974 original horror classic in which a bunch of girls in a sorority house on Christmas eve get picked off, one by one, by some deranged lunatic. I have not seen this remake, simply because I loved the original and I did not feel like wasting 85 minutes of my life. For all I know, it may be a decent teen slasher flick in comparison with some of the other dreck that comes out these days, but I doubt it. From what I have read though, all of the great things about the 1974 movie are completely absent. So I suggest you skip the remake and watch the original film directed by Bob Clark, who also directed such diverse titles as A Christmas Story, Deathdream, and Porky's.
The original film had no musical score, and that somehow works really well. Now, for the remake, the immensely talented Shirley Walker had scoring duties. She expertly weaves horror and suspense with an orchestral score enhanced by some dark synthesizer moods. This score deserves to have an official release. Shirley Walker passed away at the age of 61 not even a month before the movie hit the theaters. She was one of the few women in film music composition, and she will be remembered for creating some truly awesome sounds.
