Boomkat Product Review:
This one collects all tracks from Coil's 1988 cassette of the same title, comprising their notoriously thwarted music for Clive Barker in 'The Unreleased Themes For Hellraiser' along with numerous pieces for commercial use and a handful of demos recognisable from 'Gold is the Metal (With the Broadest Shoulders)'.
'Hellraiser' and the rest of that EP, 'The Box Theme' and 'The Main Title' remain one of cinema's great missed opportunities and should be well known to all Coil disciples.
The series of shorter commercial themes are less well known, though, including delightful wrong highlights in 'Perfume' and 'Airline' that would have scared anyone into buying the product they pertained to promote.
Of most interest, to us at least, are the five 'Untitled' drum machine, synth and sampler jams at the end, especially the loopy seven minute closer.
You know what to do…
