Today, Thursday, October 18–just in time for HalloweenSLASH has released a brand new, 7-song playlist titled UNIVERSAL MONSTERS MAZE SOUNDTRACK. Fans can enjoy the spooky soundtrack as background music to usher in Halloween night on Spotify, Apple, Pandora and Amazon HERE. SLASH composed the original music for Halloween Horror Nights ‘Universal Monsters’ Maze which fans can experience live at Universal Studios Hollywood from October 18-21, 25-28, 31 and November 1-3, 2018. The ‘Universal Monsters’ Maze pays homage to iconic classic Monsters by underscoring each of their unique attributes and reimagining them into terrifying modern-day characters.  The Wolf Man, The Invisible Man, The Phantom of the Opera, Dracula, Dracula’s Bride, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Bride of Frankenstein and The Mummy are among those featured, to which SLASH composed a unique, complex composition adding a haunting dimension to the experience. Guests can purchase tickets for “Halloween Horror Nights” here: Hollywood.HalloweenHorrorNights.com.

“As a fan of horror movies and of ‘Halloween Horror Nights,’ I jumped at the chance to once again collaborate with Universal Studios Hollywood to produce a soundtrack for the maze,” said SLASH. “Similar to the way music affects a film, I wanted to compose a score for the legions of infamous characters featured in the maze to elicit a greater sense of terror.  In the end, the goal was to ultimately make the guests feel as if they are playing an integral role in a classic Monster movie.”

Following is the full tracklisting for the UNIVERSAL MONSTERS MAZE SOUNDTRACK:

  • “We Belong Dead” – inspired by Frankenstein Monster’s immortal line from theexplosive finale of The Bride of Frankenstein.
  • “The Danse of the Dead” – inspired by “Danse Macabre,” the late medieval art movement that celebrated “the universality of death” and influenced the famous masquerade ball scene from The Phantom of the Opera/
  • “The Final Scare” – this guitar-driven, up-tempo track combines punk with modern electronic where multiple monsters attack in the maze.
  • “Universal Monsters Rising” – SLASH’s signature lead guitar joins with the mournful sound of a tolling church and the sharp, staccato stabs of violins to call guests to the graveyard, where Universal Monsters rise again.
  • “The Collection Room/Dracula’s Lair” – composed to accompany The Mummy and Dracula sections of the maze, this track transitions between Middle Eastern and Eastern European instrumentation to bring to life these two Classic Monsters.
  • “Monsters, Maniacs and Madmen (Universal Monsters Maze Medley)” – this compilation, takes a single haunting melody and transforms it.
  • “Sweet Licks (music from “Clowns 3D”) – SLASH composed this track with a creepy carnival vibe for 2014’s “Clowns 3D” maze.
