In 2022 there will only be one Record Store Dayand it takes place tomorrow, April 23† The annual celebration of bands, beer, fun and all things record store brings with it a slew of special vinyl releases, limited editions and exclusive records for Record Store Day. That includes coveted OSTs for the horror fan.
The caveat to Exclusive Record Store Day is that you can’t order them online; you must physically purchase and support your local participating record store.
Since there are hundreds of unique releases, we’ve narrowed them down to the horror movie-specific releases you don’t want to miss.
These five horror OSTs deliver the perfect blend of beautiful limited edition vinyl with earwig music.
May – Jammes Luckett
Terror Vision is bringing not one but two exclusive RSDs this year, and you don’t want to miss them. Luckett’s music comes with liner notes from Can director Lucky McKee and Luckett, with art by Vanessa McKee. It’s a blast. Terror Vision will also offer LTD cassettes and submit their RSD releases online as and when available. Go to their website and sign up for their mailing list to stay informed.
Strange Behavior – Tangerine Dream
Two words: Tangerine Dream. The very first release of this legendary 1981 Tangerine Dream score, also known as dead children† It has not been available in any format until now! Like with Can, Terror Vision will also offer LTD cassettes and offer their RSD releases online as and when available. Go to their website and sign up for their mailing list to stay informed.
Dead by Daylight V2 – Michel F April
The soundtrack of the second part of the popular multiplayer survival horror game will be available in limited edition vinyl format. Makes sense, since the first part served as a 2021 RSD release – a special release for fans of the award-winning video game.
Blue velvet – Angelo Badalamenti
