DARKLING – Soundtrack Review

“Darkling the Soundtrack”, for the film “DARKLING” by Michael Welborn, is music that is as much psychologically thrilling as the film itself. The music compilation is a mixture of beautiful compositions with dark, eerie elements, making this an album to enjoy multiple times. “DARKLING” the film is a must watch, but “Darkling the Soundtrack” tells the story of the movie just as well.

The main reason this soundtrack works so well is that, despite a variety of musical genres, the tone of the album fits the film throughout.

An early track “Bassling” (by AVZTN), with its slow, calming guitar and bass line, hits this tone perfectly. Another standout track “Stewen” (by AVZTN) is interesting in that it almost encapsulates the feel of the whole movie in one song. The soothing opening leads to a repeating rhythm on the piano that gets almost frantic before melting away to an almost silent end of the last minute. Finally “Overdose” and “Darkening the Pianos” (both by AVZTN) are a great ending to the album.

X-Mas Music Mixtape 2017 – Review

The X-mas Music Mixtape is a combo of classic holiday song covers and original tunes done in various musical genres. Rap, metal and punk are just some of styles you’ll hear as you go on this non-traditional Christmas journey.

CinemaSlice is putting out a Christmas record and if Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is You” isn’t your jam, then THIS ALBUM IS FOR YOU.

There is a lot to enjoy here

My personal favorites were the fuzzed-out, jangly cover of “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow” by Anchors Aweigh and the heavy version of Winter Wonderland called MetalWonderland by Johnny ZERO. I am also going to include an honorable mention to the darkest Christmas song I’ve ever heard “Violent Night” by Ray Elfman (imagine if Patrick Bateman from American Psycho wrote a Christmas song).
