Steve Moore – “Mayhem”
We’ve got a short but sweet RECORD OF THE WEEK blog coming at you!
STEVE MOORE (Zombi) returns with another hypnotizing new score for the acclaimed action/horror film MAYHEM, starring Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead, Okja). A veritable portrait of shock and dread across seventy-plus minutes of analog synth tension, STEVE MOORE methodically crafts pulsating rhythms and penetrating arpeggios that constrict the listener into a deep sense of aural anxiety. With four soundtracks under his belt, STEVE MOORE is quickly becoming one of the most sought out synth composers in the horror realm and MAYHEM is the ultimate demonstration of his unquestionable mastery of the style.

KING BUFFALO is a psychedelic trio in the classic format of bass, drums, and guitar, whose expansive and thunderous music is anything but easily definable. Nearly exactly three years after their formation, KING BUFFALO shows the world its first long-player creation – a powerful concoction of heavy psych, blues, and stoner rock in stunning cohesion. “Orion” flows surprisingly, giving the relative youth of the band, but KING BUFFALO seems to be a rare breed capable of fusing loose-knit and spacious pieces into a tightly-focused package. Check them out on tour right now all over the East Coast!
