FEATURE: THE MUSIC OF THE NEEDLE DROPS... PART FOUR

Updated: Sep 14, 2021

With three tracks left to debut, Hell is Empty and All the Devils are Here takes centre stage today, based on M.C. Schmidt's unsettling Short Fiction contribution. Our trailer also debuted Credit Crawl, now available to listen below. Later this month, we'll unveil Rotten Roof, another track that runs alongside our comic strip "Desert Drive", before the final track reveal based on another Short Fiction feature included in The Needle Drops... Volume One. But let's not get ahead of ourselves: let's talk Hell is Empty and All the Devils are Here, from the mind of mvrlok.

"...it's that post-advert slow trickle of film, popcorn in hand, as the chatter ceases and blood starts to pump: what horrors to come? Is my phone turned off?"

Hell is Empty and All the Devils are Here

"The Theme trails to its conclusion, but we're right back in the viscera; the dark tale of Hell is Empty... provides the perfect excuse for a sickly explosion of noise, as all senses are encapsulated in flame. It also weaves in elements inspired directly from my readings of M.C. Schmidt's incredible story; whispers of a preacher and the allure of passivity..."

Credit Crawl + The Needle Drops... Theme (Long Play Mix)

"The anxious car drive of our unfortunate protagonist featured in Thom's gorgeously illustrated "Desert Drive". The quiet journey to an unfortunate end. We - the audience - know what's coming, but no matter how loud we shout... At the same time, it's that post-advert slow trickle of film, popcorn in hand, as the chatter ceases and blood starts to pump: what horrors to come? Is my phone turned off?"

There's more to come from mvrlok, and as always, these are best experienced with a good pair of headphones in-between the pages of the final published print. You'll be able to listen along as you read with our e-book variants as well, so grab some candles and settle in to the world beneath the needle...


mvrlok Recommends

"In case ya missed it, my curated Spotify playlist with many of the horror score tracks I've been inspired by throughout all this. With Hell is Empty..., I found myself wanting to include something that encapsulates that visceral religious iconography, and strangely, found myself adopting post / noise rock stuff. The screams of the damned etc etc. I imagine Hell would be quite the rowdy spot."
