WRWTFWW Records is delighted to unleash the complete uncut soundtrack for Lucio Fulci & Bruno Mattei’s cult zombie-ploitation gem Zombi 3 (aka Zombie Flesh Eaters 2 aka Sanguelia 2, 1988) available on collector’s edition vinyl for the first time ever!
The Classic Edition comes in red is dead colored vinyl and is housed in heavy old style Stoughton casebound tip-on jackets with a red Japanese Sanguelia 2 VHS obi and a helicopter on the back cover.
This future deluxe edition OOP classic is packed with menacing synths, ghoulish melodies, and contaminated anthems remastered directly from the rare original reels of maestro Stefano Mainetti which were found at an abandoned top secret research facility. Prepare to get infected!
Zombi 3 is the (unrelated) sequel to Zombi 2 (aka Zombie Flesh Eaters aka The Island of the Living Dead aka Zombie aka Sanguelia, 1979), itself an unofficial sequel to George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead (aka Zombi, 1978). This marvel of the VHS-era finds a group of super scientists working on a very secret biological weapon called Death One which mutates and kills living humans…and re-animates the dead! What happens when the lethal weapon breaks free into the world? More chaos than a possessed Martin Riggs on a suicide mission! Feared by critics and beloved by vintage exploitation fanatics, Zombi 3 has all the charms of the glory days of Italian b-horror, including a fantastic soundtrack.
Underrated composer and conductor Stefano Mainetti has done soundtracks for Italian sleaze masters Joe D’Amato and Bruno Mattei but also for Weekend at Bernie’s and First Blood’s director Ted Kotcheff and Russell Mulcahy of Razorback/Highlander fame. His resume includes badass actioner Strike Commando 2 (aka Trappola diabolica, 1988), exploitation horror flick Ratman (aka Quella villa in fondo al parco, 1988), and The Shooter (aka Hidden Assassin, 1995) with Rocky IV and The Expendables’ manly superstar Dolph Lundgren. Much like his Italian peers Fabio Frizzi, Claudio Simonetti, or Stelvio Cipriani, Stefano Mainetti can do it all: haunting synths à la John Carpenter, jazzy atmospheres, classical orchestrations, erotic funk, decadent fm rock, and the list goes on. His eclectic abilities and flair for 80s cinematic moods are well represented in Zombi 3: The Soundtrack.
