BudosBack to back sticker posts?! Well, yeah… no shame on this, here end. This one, from my latest addition, comes with a radiant review from Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. Not that I needed any coaxing when it comes to The Budos Band, but ANYTHING that comes with a Slayer-related stamp of approval is fair game as far as I’m concerned. More on The Budos Band to come… unless I forget, or lose interest.

Spawn of the Dead

SpawnOk, so file this under “why the hell haven’t you digitized this yet?!”

Although I’m not a fan of about half of this amalgam, the boisterous pairing of the other half of this comp / soundtrack is what gets me excited. Have a look at a few of these team-ups:

Prodigy & Tom Morello

Metallica & DJ Spooky

Butthole Surfers & Moby

Slayer & Atari Teenage Riot

Spawn_creditsIt’s this last one that sets the adrenaline dial way past 11. A UK release of only (lol, “only”) 5,000 copies on triple translucent red 10″, Spawn the Album was released in 1997 in support of the New Line Cinema film, Spawn or, Spawn the Movie.

It’s difficult not to mention a similar (and far superior) superstar-filled comp / soundtrack, 1993’s Judgment Night (Music from the Motion Picture). In both cases, the accompanied soundtrack greatly outweighs the films in which they support.
