Horror themed record label "Rotary Tower Records" recently got in touch to tell us about their new release "Archivio Giallo - Volume One" by Giallo's Flame.
Ron Graham, aka Giallos Flame, is a man immersed in the sights and sounds of vintage horror films with a particular penchant for Italian Giallo. However, this multi-instrumentalist traverses genres. His music would sound equally at home in Napoli's Quartiere Spagnoli circa 1972 as on the streets of New York in the early 80's.
He spans hard-hitting psych rock, break-driven funk and synth-heavy ambient atmospheres that usually share a dark, brooding theme in common.
Over the past decade he has produced an acclaimed catalogue most of which was self released in limited numbers and has since become unavailable. Now, Graham steps out of the shadows and delves deep into his archive to compile three volumes of Archivio Giallo.
The first volume focuses on Graham's synth-heavy productions. The scene is set by the analog pulse of the opening track and what follows is a profusion of beat-driven, bass-heavy grooves and psyched-out soundscapes that form a cohesive soundtrack that seduces the listener into the night.
The tracks featured in the Archivio Giallo series have been remastered from the dusty tapes in the Giallo vaults bringing the sound of the past into the future.
The next transmission of terror in the Archivio Giallo series will be Volume Two in June.
