Videogram Redux!

Originally released in the summer of 2014 to coincide with Doc Terror / Horror Sexy's Italian Horror Week, Videogram's S/T album burst onto the international horror scene, receiving accolades such as "truly an amazing auditory experience" (Horror, Sci-fi & More), a "skillfully crafted faux soundtrack album grounded in retro electronica" (Rue Morgue), and "the most powerful piece of electronic scoring to hit the horror community this year" (Lunchmeat VHS Fanzine).

Created as a trailer show for a fictitious 1980s VHS distributor, the album offered sixteen tracks of genre-influenced sounds, with inspiration culled from the sleazy slasher, dusty post-apocalyptic dirger, supernatural horror, and Italian cannibal section of the VHS rental store, bookmarked between faux idents and a voice-over copyright warning.

Now, having remixed each original track, culling bonus tracks from out-of-print releases as well as previously unreleased material, the album has been reissued as Videogram Redux, the first in a series of three collecting early and unreleased material.

Get the 20-track, 41-minute album via Bandcamp (€7/$8.40) here.

(As promised, those that showed their much-appreciated support early on can get in touch for a free download code.)
