Secret Chiefs 3 HORRORTHON

A playlist of horror-themed music from Secret Chiefs 3, re-imagined, re-mastered and re-contextualized into a full-length "Horrorthon"! It's a supercharged soundtrack to your isolated Halloween. The full range of previously available tracks here were curated with the season in mind (the Season of the Witch, that is). Perhaps "the times" have brought horrors previously unacknowledged out into the open, driving theworld half insane in the process. We don't WANT works like "Le Mani Destre Recise Degli Ultimi Uomini" to be retroactively vindicated in this way, but something in the air told us it was "TIME"... time to tie-together all the loose-threads of Horror we've been working on over the years (in different formats and under different satellite band names) and put them in one place.... along with some fresh twists on familiar threads... The Horrorthon was originally conceived as a tidy little supercharged Halloween playlist for longtime SC3 fans, even something on point that they can gift to their seasonally-affected horror-fan friends (who might not otherwise be hip to the SC3 sound, or are daunted by the breadth of our big, confusing catalog). Be warned, we took a curator's liberties with our music here and went nuts on dialogue interludes (of the "more-relevant-today-than-when-it-came-out" type).

"The clock is ticking... it's TIME!"
Dive into the immersive experience of the HORRORTHON!

Welcome to the Mausolée Méchanique! 

Here we have two new Secret Chiefs 3 arrangements of Saint-Saëns' immortally bewitching black tone-poem for the undead. We think it can function as a kind of alternate Christmas carol.

Cleric - Retrocausal

December 8, 2017: "Retrocausal" is Cleric's stunning and long LONG-awaited follow-up to their groundbreaking 2010 album "Regressions". Now with well-earned respect from both the extreme metal underground and Zorn-associated avant garde jazz scene, Cleric more than makes good on their promise. Listen to them rewrite the book on what the combination of the terms "metal" and "avant garde" can (and should) mean. With "Retrocausal" this tireless Philadeliphia-based unit has burst forth with a true masterpiece in the field of extreme experimental music. Read more & listen here.
