For the first time ever, here is the soundtrack from the 1983 post-apocalyptic flick directed by Joe D'Amato, Endgame - Bronx Lotta Finale. A compelling Carlo Maria Cordio's mighty Vangelis-meets-John Carpenter score. With hangovers from previous Giallo-based outings, Endgame's themes are more gentle and introspective than, say, Claudio Simonetti's muscular work for The New Barbarians and Hands of Steel but also, arguably, musically more diverse. In particular, the opening title track "Atomic Contamination" is genuinely chilling when set against the stock footage of a nuclear bomb going off. While liberally pinching the vibe of Blade Runner's more symphonic textures, Cordio's synthesizers also do bombast, melancholy, and menace when required, whilst the pretty pieces for "Lilith" are like semi-precious jewels shining out of the murk and machismo.
Carlo Maria Cordio made a brand-new recording of the intro for the original recordings for the intro "Atomic Contamination", being impossible to use because of the bad condition of the vintage magnetic tape, with the very same instruments he used 38 years ago, especially for the LP. Produced by Guillaume Le Disez and Anthony Neale. On the front cover is the iconic artwork the movie is renowned for, and on the back cover, the alternative poster was created by the great Renato Casaro. Entirely remastered by David Hachour for ColorSound Studio. Includes eight re-pro lobby cards from the film; 180 gram vinyl; gatefold sleeve.
