Shadow of the Beast (Soundtrack)


Music is composed by David Whittaker. Shadow of the Beast remains a prime example of his pioneering hands-on approach, programming music directly with instrumental samples of his own on a Korg M1 synthesizer. The tunes make for a singular combination of Spaghetti Western-style tension mixed with world beats. Tracks like Welcome To The Plains play with harder rhythms like warped speed techno, while a hard-to-miss melancholy pervades the Underground suite.
