The original motion picture soundtrack score for Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI is being released on vinyl in October by Waxwork Records. The score was composed by Harry Manfredini and is sourced from the original masters.
The album will be available on 180-gram vinyl with two colour variants: “Cemetery Explosion” (red with blue and white splatter) and “Electric Purple Lightning” (clear with purple and white marble). The package comes in a gatefold jacket featuring artwork by Ghoulish Gary Pullin.
“Waxwork Records is proud to present Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Harry Manfredini! Available for the very first time on vinyl, and sourced from the original 1986 master tapes, Waxwork is thrilled to release the long-awaited soundtrack to the fan-favourite instalment of the Friday the 13th franchise. The film follows Jason Voorhees who, after accidentally being resurrected, stalks yet another group of camp counsellors. This version of Jason, a now undead and more supernatural version of the character, would become the standard depiction of the masked slasher for the rest of the series.
The score by Friday the 13th veteran composer, Harry Manfredini, features his biggest and most bombastic score to date in the series. Working with a full orchestra and with the budget to include updated sound design and electronic work, Manfredini takes the franchise’s music to new heights before his hiatus from the series, returning years later to score Parts 9 (Jason Goes To Hell) and 10 (Jason X).
