Without dub, Lucio Fulci’s horror films have inspired the aesthetics of many metal bands. The new album “Tropical Sun” is a concept based on the cult movie ZOMBI 2. The film is set in a tropical paradise that suddenly turns into hell when the dead come back to life due to a voodoo ritual or a virus. The “Sun” of the title in fact also refers to the infernal fire. The scenes and mood of the film are narrated in a deeply apocalyptic / splatter way through our lyrics. There is talk of Voodoo rituals and genetic experiments, cemeteries surrounded by palms and legions of the living dead and even an underwater fight between sharks and zombies! Inspired by the original soundtrack by Fabio Frizzi we have included some parts of the film’s synth and audio that help make Tropical Sun a true death metal soundtrack.
“Tropical Sun” will be released on 31st May 2019 via Time To KIll Records.
The effort is a concept album based on the cult movie “Zombi 2” (1979), one of the masterpieces of legendary director Lucio Fulci.
The film tells the story of a Caribbean island cursed by voodoo, whose dead residents rise as zombies to attack the living.
