White Claudia - "Deadly .Iris Zero"
(Hairs a Blazin')
Just in time for the most haunted season of the year, White Claudia has released this eerie selection of ghostly tracks, inspired by horror video game soundtracks.
Deadly .Iris Zero, which is arranged as a soundtrack, pays homage to the Silent Hill series with sounds of ambient horror inspired by the original music of Akira Yamaoka, painting a picture of an abandoned hospital full of creeping terrors and disfigured monsters. Malevolent atmospheric drones and disturbing noises drench each track with psychological torture and rusted nightmares.
While certainly taking its cues from Silent Hill, Deadly .Iris Zero tells its own unique story, creating a twisted tale of fright from the gloomy opening track, Title Screen, to the heart-pounding boss battle of Dr Aleister [Final Form], to the end credits feel of Scorched Iris [End Theme.] By the completion of the album, the listener has been on a harrowing journey through the formidable Iris Memorial Hospital. The only thing left to do is to restart this release on a higher difficulty level - and play it again.
