This week’s Mondo Music releases have a strong theme. First up is the Playstation 2’s Silent Hill 2 soundtrack on coloured vinyl with a re-release – on white vinyl – of the Silent Hill 1 soundtrack too.
Silent Hill 2 is psychological horror by way of David Lynch, evoking the more surreal and supernatural elements of Twin Peaks while telling the story of one man’s journey into a hell of his own creation. Like the geographical differences between the maps of the two games, musically Silent Hill 2 feels like somewhere you’ve been before but mysteriously different and unique. It’s haunting and beautiful at one moment, tense and spine-tingling the next. If Silent Hill 1 is a frightful jump scare, Silent Hill 2 will haunt you in your dreams for years to come.
Out this Wednesday, the 6th of March, from 12 noon (ET time) onwards.
Oh, and there’s enamel pins too. Everyone likes pins, right?
