Director: Panos Cosmatos
Starring: Nicholas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache, Ned Dennehy Olwen Fouere, Richard Brake, Bill Duke. USA. 2h 1m

Cosmastos seems obsessed with 1983, where his previous movie was also set, is there a parallel here?

Films that would benefit from a Atmospheric Black Metal OST

If you’ve ever read my blog, you’ll know I’m a weakling for black and white movies and I can’t mention Vampyr (1932) without ranting on about the version with the the soundtrack lovingly created by virtuosis of Year of No Light (https://yearofnolight.bandcamp.com) which adds a whole new level of atmosphere and really enhances the movie to no end…

Now because I have no life and live for movies, I am going to get really geeky and suggest 5 movies that could possibly benefit from a darker and more powerful sound track. To be honest I don’t know why bands and fans don’t really score more films, obviously silent ones are easier and there are plenty more of those to do… hint hint!!

Atmospheric music generally perceived as….

Atmospheric black metal is a sub-genre of black metal which relies on heavy incorporation of atmospheric, sometimes even dreamy textures, therefore moving away from its parent into a less aggressive direction. Atmospheric black metal often features synthesizers or classical instrumentation, typically for melody or ethereal “shimmering” over the wall of sound provided by the guitars. The music is usually slow to mid paced with rare blast beat usage, without any abrupt changes and generally features slowly developing, sometimes repetitive melodies and riffs, thus providing another notable distinction from its parent and other black metal sub-genres. Subject matter usually concerns nature, folklore, mythology, and personal introspection.”
