Morricone Youth: Night Of The Living Dead

The New York-based and astutely named Morricone Youth have just released a new six-song EP on which they present their own uncommon take on George A. Romero's 1968 zombie classic, Night Of The Living Dead, the first in a fifteen-release series of music for films scored live at various movie theaters around New York City.

Almost half a century after its original release, Night Of The Living Dead, the gift that keeps on giving to the world of horror, is getting a fresh treatment blended with Morricone Youth's electro and garage rock qualities that unveil a whole new aspect of the original score. The new release includes two brand new reinterpretations of music from the 1968 film along with four original tracks that inevitably bring to mind the eerie, atmospheric scores of some of the genre's giants like Goblin, John Carpenter, Fabio Frizzi and - of course - the most chilling side of Ennio Morricone's enormous body of work.

Night Of The Living Dead is available now as a limited edition pressing on 500 neon green vinyl as well as digitally via the amazing Light In The Attic. Listen to it in its entirety right below.
