Man-eater kidnap research teams and impale virgins. Admittedly - somewhat difficult to digest - films of Italian B-movie genres are accompanied by dreamlike melodies.

"L'Isola dei dannati" – “The Island of the Damned” - takes us into the jungle and on the (almost) deserted island, accompanied by erotic rendezvous and wings with Bossa Nova a summer that should never end, until the gruesome story takes its course.

Mondo Sangue (film music composer Christian Bluthardt and singer Yvy Pop) pay a passionate tribute to the iconic music of 70s exotica and carnivore movies.


released June 6, 2016

MOVIE MUSIC INTERNATIONAL, John Mansell [August 2016]: "... the music by MONDO SANGUE (Cristiano Sangueduro and Cristina Casereccia) is simply superbly retro and filled with what one would think is the sounds of the 1970’s, the attention to detail with the style, orchestration and performance of the score (if that’s what it is) is faultless. Wordless female vocals, grunting and puffing chorale sections, happy sounding la LA’s, beautiful tone poems created on light woodwinds that are enhanced by the use of harpsichord that seem to float on tranquil winds that frequent the imaginary island and also there is that definite ITALIAN SOUND present... This album which is an actual vinyl release is a must have purchase from the excellent catalogue of ALL SCORE MEDIA and if you have not got a turntable, well go and buy one right now because to miss out on this exquisite release would be tragic (it is also on Spotify) but I highly recommend the vinyl experience. Let’s put it this way if you like, FIDENCO, MORRICONE, FERRIO, NICOLAI, TROVAIOLI etc. then you will love this. Fantastic cover art makes this unmissable in any record browser."

Melodie und Rhythmus [Sept./Okt. 2016]: "Entfaltung des Grauens. Mondo Sangue über verkanntes Musikschaffen. 9 von 10 Sternen."

Hörerlebnis [#97, Sept. 2016]: "Hommage an das italienische Unterhaltungskino der Siebzigerjahre ... , in der die musikalischen Elemente zwischen Psychedelic, Erotik und Exotik, zwischen Trash und italienischem Breitwandkino oszillieren. ... Großes Breitwandkino auf schwarzem Vinyl!"

MINT - Magazin für Vinyl-Kultur [August 2016]: "Ein ungewöhnliches Highlight für Sammler von Soundtracks."

Deadline Magazin [Juli 2016]: "...ein 'Soundtrack' im Stil der Kannibalenfilme jener großen Zeit, kompetent umgesetzt und eine Freude fürs Auge."

Stuttgarter Zeitung [03.06.16]: "Die wahrscheinlich durchgeknallteste Veröffentlichung des Stuttgarter Popjahrs."

Italo Cinema [23.05.16]: "Hommage an italienische Soundtracks vergangener Tage, kein Fake-Rip-Off sondern vielmehr eine große Verbeugung und kleine Genre-Erweiterung auf Soundtrack-Ebene."

Neue Passauer Presse [19.07.16]: "...bis in die Details des Covers stilechte Hommage... Ein perfekter Retro-Trip...!"

Kaput-Magazin [27.06.16]: "Record of the Week! ... macht auch Spaß, weil die Musik gut ist: Genreklassiker (echte, haha) wie Emmanuelle, Vampyros Lesbos oder Mondo Cane zitierend, also eine Mischung aus Erotica & Exotica, retro-psychedelisch und mit original-gefakten Geräuschzutaten..."

Camera Obscura [21.05.16]: "... genau das, was das Herz eines jeden Italo-Fans höher schlagen läßt."

Lift [Juni 16]: "...der mörderisch gute Soundtrack ... eine wunderbar musikalische Hommage an den italienischen Kannibalenfilm. "

Splatting Image [10.06.16]: "Christian Bluthardt zeigt sich als ausgefuchster Kenner des Sujets ... In den Kompositionen klingt Nico Fidenco durch, viel Stelvio Cipriani, Goblin’eskes ist für diesen Urwaldtrip ebenfalls im Lunchpaket – Erotica, Exotica und Bossa-Bussi-Business; was will man mehr?"

Nerdcore [Juni 16]: "Schicker Soundtrack zu fiktiven Kannibalenfilmen von Christian Bluthardt und Yvy Pop aka Mondo Sangue."

Kessel-TV [03.06.16]: "Wunderschön und trotzdem als würde das Unheil gleich persönlich an der Tür klopfen."
