‘Snuff Box’ is a deluxe 3 CD box set (Guinea Pig, Supernatural Cannibal Zombie and The Dnepropetrovsk Maniacs).

Released in an edition of 151 copies.

This release is yet another instalment in the MONSTER series. It consists of themes, incidental music, bridging songs, interludes, creaks and groans created as imaginary soundtracks for imaginary horror films. 70 tracks spread over three discs featuring musical interpretations on a ‘horrific’ theme influenced by such maestros as Donald Rubinstein, John Carpenter, Fabio Frizzi and Ennio Morricone. The tracks cover a vast amount of ground including austere orchestral pieces, voodoo drums, torture porn, possession, cheesy 80’s soundtracks, Giallo, 70’s synths, Mellotrons, flutes, piano and much much more.

Italian narration and translation courtesy of Simona Dalla Valle. Japanese narration and translation courtesy of Tomomi Kojo-Robertson. Russian narration and translation courtesy of Ksenia Nefedova. All other voices Melon Liles.

The amazing printed art on the inner sleeves comes from Marc Beattie and on outer covers from Graham Humphreys (the revered British designer and illustrator responsible for some of the best film posters of the 1980’s including Evil Dead, Nightmare on Elm Street and album covers for The Cramps and The Lords of the New Church).

THE MALEFICENT MONSTER & OTHER MACABRE STORIES was also released as a ‘Best of’ single L.P. Go here to view the vinyl version –
