Grégoire Lourme continues to produce amazing soundtrack music, and giving it Free Culture licenses. His early Cinematic releases tended to try to cover a broad swath of genres, but the more recent ones have become more focused, as with last month’s WMM album, Epic Choir.
Well, Volume 9: Horror and Dark Suspense is just as advertised. When I was trying to get the horror novel done in time for October publication (yeah, yet again, didn’t make it, that novel will be the death of me), this album worked perfectly to put me in the mental space for writing scenes of dread.
From the broken fairy tale opening of “Little Girl with Dark Hair” through the mounting dread of “Ad Vitam”, to the purposeful beat of “City of Crime”, every track hits those dark tones you need to set the mood for a really solid horror story.
