|Tombs of the Blind Dead|
And then they read my mind.
Here's what they did (from the Rise Above Records page for the EP):
London based Zoltan capture the eerie spine-chiiling [sic] terror of the decomposed ghoulish Knights Templar with this four track EP, by paying homage to the Tombs of the Blind Dead series of movies created by Spanish director Amando D’Ossorio.
Each track relates to one of the four movies from this cult underground series, which are regarded by many as absolute highlights of the Euro Horror underground horror scene of the early 70’s. Slow motion doomed imagery comes to life in full analogue glory, making this a must for any dark minded music lovers and soundtrack collectors out there.
|Sixty Minute Zoom|
It wasn't long after that I found Zoltan's next project, a full-length album no less, their second, called 'Sixty Minute Zoom'. It was also a solid find, it may not look like it based on the bright colorful cover, but it's a bit darker overall than 'First Stage ...', though not nearly as black as 'Tombs ...' It also shucks away much of the John Carpenter influence that defined 'First Stage' and finds Zoltan doing very much their own thing. Or is that my thing ... damn mind readers. Anyway, it only just came out a month ago on bandcamp (listen on the player below). The 'Tombs' EP I found, like I do all Rise Above albums, on itunes.
