Screamworks Records presents

The Brotherhood (La Hermandad) (Arnau Bataller)

Performed by Barcelona’s Liceu Opera House Symphony and Choir in their first ever film score recording, Arnau Bataller’s music for The Brotherhood (La hermandad) combines dark textures (orchestral effects and electronics) with a more thematic approach characterized by the evocative choral writing inspired by the story’s religious setting.

Composer Arnau Bataller has worked on countless American and Spanish projects, including José Luis Alemán’s H.P. Lovecraft-inspired horror films The Valdemar Legacy (2010) and The Valdemar Legacy II: The Forbodden Shadow (2010) – also available from MovieScore Media. The Brotherhood marks Bataller’s second collaboration with Julio Martí after La victoria de Úrsula (2011).

The Brotherhood is a moody Spanish thriller written and directed by Julio Martí. The film tells the story of Sara (Lydia Bosch), a successful horror author who survives an accident just outside a secluded Benedictine monastery in northern Italy. Even though she should stay in bed, Sara soon finds intriguing secrets about the monastery: strange stains on the ceiling, an infant crying in the night, an old photograph and a chilling book on the Brotherhood and their disturbing customs…

We are proud to release the chilling, religiously-inspired score by composer Arnau Bataller to coincide with the film’s Spanish premiere on 21 March 2014.

What!?! No cd release :-( I loved Battaler's The Vladermar's Legacy scores. Oh well, I know MSM can't make every release a cd..., but wish you could.

Sadly, I'll have to pass on this digital only release. But I love MSM music (and Screamworks too).

Amen to that! Hopefully KRONOS will announce a CD release when Godwin gets back from his vacation.

This one's REALLY good. Reminds me of Roque Banos' more grandiloquent dark side rather uncannily, esp. FRAGILES and INTRUDER.

I will definitely be checking out more of this composer's work, I can see that quite a bit of it is available on iTunes!
