Dragon’s Domain Records, to be distributed through buysoundtrax.com, presents the soundtrack release of THIRST, featuring music composed by Brian May (MAD MAX, ROAD GAMES, THE ROAD WARRIOR, CLOAK & DAGGER) for the 1979 horror film directed by Rod Hardy (20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA, BUFFALO GIRLS), written by John Pinkney, produced by Antony I. Ginnane, starring Chantal Contouri, Shirley Cameron, Max Phipps, Henry Silva, David Hemmings and Rod Mullinar.
THIRST tells the story of Kate Davis (Contouri) who is kidnapped and taken to a strange corporate/industrial complex where vampires are trained, cared for, and fed through an elaborate blood farm which systematically draws blood from unconscious people. Unlike the traditionally fanged menaces of the cinema, the vampires in THIRST do not have teeth that grow. They have metal devices they put in their mouths in preparation for their feeding. Upon her arrival, Kate is told she is a descendant of the infamous vampire countess, Elizabeth Bathory, and is expected to welcome her transformation as an initiate into The Brotherhood. As the story unfolds and Kate learns more about The Brotherhood, she struggles to resist against the temptation to give in and join them in their rituals.
Brian May’s music for THIRST is comprised of three elements. First there is a thematic main theme, a lovely recurring melody that is associated with Kate and her experiences through the storyline. Secondly, the suspense music, which is often derived out of the main theme’s introductory phrase, which lends a creepy atmosphere and drives the panic and horror of the film. Finally, there is the harmonic choral music heightening the suspense as Kate becomes more inescapably immersed into the world of The Brotherhood.
