And the hearse is laden / A coffin lies inside



These are a few of my favorite things, brought together in the grainy window of youtube. Absurdly over-the-top Mario Bava inspired Italian doom metal wizards Abysmal Grief, played over old horror footage. Check out their full album, appropriately, over at the Cosmic Hearse: it's a stunning, church organ groaning, chain rattling, dirge stomping alternate musical history drawing forth the hazy psychedelic undertones of so much of this century's misfiring scary movie brilliance.

seriously. This is fast becoming my go to soundtrack for writing about horror. (And for drinking virgin's blood from an ornate chalice while dressed like a sinister Italian viscount. The usual.)
