Overview

Release Date:11/25/2016;Notes:Death Waltz Recording Co. Is proud to present a re-issue of Jay Chattaway's soundtrack to the 1980 classic Maniac. An absolutely phenomenal, sleazy synth score from Jay Chattaway, perfectly capturing the unease and grime of Times Square in it's pre-Disney clean up era. It's minimal synth lines, full to the brim with dark brooding menace, exaggerated ring modulations and discordant strings manage to echo the utter despair of Joe Spinell's character on screen. This stands head and shoulders above similar 80's synth scores which often riffed on John Carpenter's Halloween score a little too much. Maniac sees Chattaway going wild, adding layers of noise & dialogue into the mix, giving the score an utterly claustrophobic feel that manages to be both terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. This is a genuinely uncomfortable listen and it is easy to see why it has become such a classic amongst synth-heads and horror fans alike.;Track List:1. Maniac's Theme (Main Titles);2.
