New albums for spooky season

Read on by Isaac Biehl

Hopefully by now you’ve gotten those jack-o-lanterns carved, a truck-full of candy ready for the taking and your Michael Meyers masks dusted off, because we’re officially reaching the peak of spooky season this weekend, people!

To help you elevate those scary vibes around the home for those trick-or-treaters or at your Halloween festivities this weekend, this installment of Source Material is highlighting a few new projects dedicated to the music of the horror genre.

« Presence of Evil » SHREDDER 1984

The darksynth stylings of producer Steven Schriver come all the way from Biarritz, France. Schriver is the mind behind Shredder 1984, who releases music heavily inspired by horror movies and video games. His latest album, « Presence of Evil, » pulls a ton of inspiration from ’80s slashers and Schriver goes wild with his synths. It’s like you’re being hunted by a robot version of Freddy Krueger. Schriver’s last couple of albums have been heavy on guitar shredding, so if you’re more into that don’t be afraid to take a look.
