"Full-orchestra sounds swinging from eerie to stomping in a heartbeat"

While you might be slightly loath to hear of another Aussie-made zombie flick, you should at least be a little excited by its accompanying soundtrack, because Lira has jammed together a range of influences to make something truly powerful.

Having done soundtracks for a bunch of Australian TV, it feels like Lira has finally had a chance to dive head-first into his passion, with full-orchestra sounds swinging from eerie to stomping in a heartbeat. Oh, and closer, Dr Funkenstein, is probably the best track made since Monster Mash. Just saying.
