House at the Edge of the Dark

Giallos Flame, The - MP3 - Rating: 9/10

Thanks to some free mp3 credits from Amazon, this is the first album that I ever purchased as a download! I have to say, I am really liking this release. The Giallos Flame is an English band which models its sound after the synth-laden prog-rock of late 70s/early 80s Italian horror movie soundtracks (Fabio Frizzi and Goblin). I have their first CD and it was good, but, at times it was maybe just a little too jazzy for my tastes. House at the Edge of the Dark is much better. They really lay on the howling analog synths and there is a much more consitent feeling from beginning to end. I can’t wait to hear more from this band.
