Gareth Evans’ game-changing action epic THE RAID was a shotgun blast to the face when it exploded onto our shores, collectively showing us that we had a new classic on our hands. One thing we didn’t get to experience was the film’s original score, from composers Aria Praygoi & Fajar Yuskemal, but now thanks to Death Waltz Records we’ll not have the chance to hear what was originally intended!
Coming January 2015 (alongside a secret release that hasn’t been revealed yet), THE RAID bows onto vinyl complete with all the illustrious bells & whistles we’ve come to expect from a Death Waltz release. Check out the cover art above from comic book artist Chris Weston, and read a few words from Death Waltz’s head honcho below!
“The original (and never before released in ANY format) Indonesian score to Gareth Evans THE RAID will be our first release of 2015 and our first that will go on sale over at our new home of Mondo.
We are super proud to finally be bringing this little heard score to a wider audience as it is frankly ‘fucking brilliant’ !
We ‘ve worked closely with he director and composers every step of the way from mastering to artwork approval & the whole package looks outstanding.
We’ll have another release on sale at the same time as this one but we’re keeping that one a secret so make sure you are signed up to our mailing list and following both Death Waltz and Mondo on twitter to get on sale information.”
