Lord of Salem is an overlooked, solid horror film from Rob Zombie that is for sure worth another watch. When I first saw it, I thought it moved a bit too slow and got lost in itself, but upon further review, it is a really subversive film that demands your undivided attention when you watch. One thing I have always appreciated about this and other Zombie film are the soundtracks, and this coming Friday, Waxwork Records will release the Lords of Salem soundtrack on vinyl for the first time. The 180-gram disc will come in a "Satanic Rite" colored disc and feature awesome jacket artwork by Robert Sammelin. Check it out below.

This is going to be one of those releases that sneaks up on people and will be sold out before they realize that it is a thing, so be sure to hit up Waxwork this coming Friday when it goes up. While you are there, also check out their new shirts! I love the horror pin-up aesthetic, and they look comfortable as hell.
