Heads Up: Death Waltz's "Halloween II" and "Halloween III" Vinyl Albums

I've heard that vinyl recordings give off a musical "warmth" that you just can't get with digital. And we can't forget about the cool factor, which I believe empirically states that regardless of a record's quality, being in close proximity to said vinyl imparts an aura of knowledge, wisdom, and sophisticated musical taste to everyone in the immediate area. There's also something incredibly romantic about the tangibility and immediacy of a record that just doesn't exist in other audio formats. So, why on Earth did it take me so long to delve into the wonderful world of vinyl? Well, I guess the short answer would be I was intimidated. Rightly or wrongly, I always pictured those who were into records as the musical elite - snobs who would no doubt raise their nose at me and my naiveté the moment I approached the register. How wrong I was, dear friends! Thanks to the folks at Death Waltz Recording Company, I've been slowly amassing a beautiful record collection that appeals to the movie lover in me both visually and auditorily. What does all this mean? Hmm. I guess this rather long-winded exploration of my troubled psyche is my way of telling you that you need to support these guys. Not only does Death Waltz use some of today's most talented cine-obsessed artists when designing their album covers, they go that extra mile, working with the people behind the music to ensure they have the best possible product out there. As proof of their dedication to everything I love, Death Waltz just put their Halloween II and Halloween III: Season of the Witch albums on sale a few minutes ago. Need more convincing? Take a peek at the beautiful artwork below.

If you have any interest at all in amazing music, amazing artwork, and the films that made the two previous elements possible, be sure to sign up for the Death Waltz newsletter and follow @deathwaltzrecs on Twitter.
