Evil Dead (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - (1982)
Joeseph LoDuca's score for The Evil Dead is a study in contrasts. Some of its pieces are moody and even old-fashioned in composition and execution, heavy as they are on piano and strings. They are of themselves impressive. Many of the tracks make liberal use of synthesized notes, sometimes interwoven with the more traditional instruments. As you get deeper into the album, LoDuca increasingly chooses a seemingly chaotic combination of instruments, creating a manic sense that fits the film and is an exciting listening experience.
