Europaweite Aussichten and S.T.R.S.G.N return with their full length original soundtrack to the Scottish horror/sci-fi short film 'The Seeker' written and directed by Stewart Hamilton. The Seeker soundtrack is an eerie, ominous and occasionally melancholy listen, loaded with high tension and dark atmosphere. Crafted from deep analog synthesizer sounds, haunting vocal textures, razor sharp high-end frequencies and warm saw-toothed bass tones reminiscent of the original scores from the golden era of the late 70s and early eighties slasher films.
This expanded version of The Seeker soundtrack also contains demos, original outtakes and alternate versions of tracks from the soundtrack not featured in the film. In addition to the original score are four guest tracks by artists featured on the soundtrack in the film. Tracks by Python Blue, Le Cassette, VHS Dreams and De Lorra.
About the film:
The Seeker is a micro-budget homage to horror classics XTRO, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Thing.
After reports of an Unidentified Flying Object crashing in the Highlands of Scotland, a quiet and lonely man has an encounter with a strange being. Waking up disorientated he finds himself consumed by an alien impulse which leads him to seek out those closest to him and turn them to his extra-terrestrial will. Look closely and observe your friends and family with keen regard. They could be…THE SEEKER.

It isn't hard to imagine this as the soundtrack to "Night of the Living Dead" in a parallel universe where the classic film was made in early eighties Italy. The metronomic kick drum throbbing away at the start of "Opening Credits" and that eerie vocal choir synth line awakens the same frisson as when listening to Frizzi's "Zombi 2" main theme. A wonderful homage to retro Italo-horror soundtracks which also functions very effectively as an alternative score for the film. Excellent... Kish Kollektiv
