Prog Reviewer
4 stars An interesting release which sits halfway between the sort of symphonic progressive material Goblin would produce for Dario Argento on the one hand and more traditional horror movie soundtracks on the other, Fabio Frizzi's soundtrack for The Beyond was truly one of the highlights of the film, adding a sombre power to the devastating final twist. The gentle flute passages on here are a real treat - of course, those who've seen the film and taken in the last scene will know that in its original context the flute added a bitterly ironic touch of sweetness to a panorama of utter devastation, but outside this context it's actually rather uplifting and romantic, a little island of calm in the middle of symphonic terrorism.

It's little surprise that symphonic horror maestros Morte Macabre chose to cover an extract from the album on Symphonic Holocaust, though I'd have preferred to hear their take on the masterful Voci di Nulla theme than the disco-esque Sequenza Ritmica E Tema. But then again, why tamper with a work which is so fine in its original context?

Warthur | 4/5 |
