Adler, Schloss - Music For Survival Horror


Year of Release: 2001
Label: Cyclops
Catalog Number: CYCL 099
Format: CD
Total Time: 55:58:00

Vulgar Unicorn centipede Neil Randall this time follows in the footsteps of the great Italian band Goblin. Under the pseudonym of Schloss Adler, Randall enters the world of Devil Doll and Morte Macabre in order to deliver an unreleased soundtrack for the Black Widow Label as a tribute to the black and white horror movies. However, he stays loyal to his Vulgar Unicorn roots so Cyclops Records doesn't see any harm in adding this one-off release to its roster. It's with this kind of release that the British label is moving futher away from the neo-prog tag that they received years ago. Armed with piano, electronics, acoustic guitar, cello and percussion, new atmospheres are created by the minute, atmospheres that seem to shed some light on the deep, dark inner self. This ideal material for the chill-out room fits perfectly next to The Orb and Future Sound of London, however, to be honest, I wouldn't put this CD on if you?re at home all by yourself. I can guarantee to you that you won't leave the house ever again ? for the rest of your life!
