All new artwork by original Evil Dead Poster artist Graham Humphreys. Pressed on 2 x 180g Naturum De Montum vinyl, Necronomicon booklet containing liner notes from Composer Joe LoDuca, Producer Robert Tapert & Star Bruce Campbell. Download card included.

“EVIL DEAD was my first film commission. As fate would have it, this is the movie that has the most enduring impact on generations of fans. Every few years I get a request to release the score, and my response is the same. I own the score, but not the recording rights. So when I was last approached to reissue the score, I asked myself this question: Knowing what I now know, how would I write for that ensemble today? I am happy that I did.Welcome to my nightmare: reimagined.” – Joe LoDuca

Growing up in the rich culture of rock, jazz and classical music in Detroit, along with studies in comparative literature, Joseph LoDuca wasn’t aware he was prepping for a career composing for film.

The two- time Emmy Award winner is no stranger to large orchestral action/adventures, fantasies and thrillers. Josephʼs extensive scores for television are highlighted by Xena: Warrior Princess (Emmy winner), Legend of the Seeker (Emmy winner), and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

His international projects include Brotherhood of the Wolf (César nominee for Best Score) and Patagonia (directed by Marc Evans), which was chosen as the 2012 British entry for the Foreign Language Oscar. The project featured song collaborations with pop artist Duffy and operatic baritone Bryn Terfel.

His multifaceted catalogue is marked by operettas, musicals and theme songs, which have earned him five of his twelve Emmy nominations. Recently, he has conducted suites of his music at the Tenerife Filmucite Festival and with the Golden State Pops Orchestra.

LoDuca also composed the music for Turner Network Televisionʼs Leverage (for Dean Devlin) director Sam Raimiʼs Evil Dead Trilogy, and the Starz Entertainment series Spartacus (produced by Raimi/Tapert/Donen and Steven DeKnight). In 2017, his broadcast and theatrical work consisted of Season 4 of TNT’s The Librarians, Season 3 of Ash v. Evil Dead for Starz, and Disjointed, a Netflix sitcom (David Javerbaum, Chuck Lorre); two feature films–Bad Samaritan (Dean Devlin), Cult of Chucky (Don Mancini); and Pleasuredome, an 80’s-themed musical.

He sums it all up: “I understand story and how to create a language of music in film. The sounds and structures I discover when I work closely with a director are what constantly surprise and inspire me.”

Bruce brings us through his life in the decade since his first memoir and his roles as varied as they are numerous- from his roles in the Spider-Man movies to his self-referential My Name is Bruce to his role on #1 show Burn Notice and his new STARZ hit series Ash vs Evil Dead.

Over the last 15 years, Bruce has become a regular on the Wizard World convention circuit, has created his @GroovyBruce twitter account with over 400,000 followers and a Facebook page with almost 250,000 likes. His profile and reach is lightyears beyond where it was for Chins.
