Carl Zittrer is a Canadian composer, who has done the score for such films as,
Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things (1973), Deranged (1974), Dead Of Night (1974), Black Christmas (1974),
Murder By Decree (1979) (for which he won the Genie Award for Best Achievement In Music - Original Score),
Prom Night (1980), Porky's (1982), Porky's II: The Next Day (1983), A Christmas Story (1983) and others.
Black Christmas (alternate titles include Silent Night, Evil Night and Stranger In The House)
is a Canadian psychological slasher film directed by Bob Clark (August 5, 1939 – April 4, 2007) and written by A. Roy Moore.
The story follows a group of sorority sisters who are receiving threatening phone calls,
while being stalked and murdered during the holiday season by a deranged murderer.
The film was inspired by a series of murders that took place in the Westmount section of Montreal, Quebec,
and the urban legend "The Babysitter And The Man Upstairs".
Years after its release, Black Christmas has received respected praise and is generally considered to be one
of the earliest slasher films, served as an influence for Halloween, and has become a cult classic.
Carl Zittrer, stated in an interview that he created the film's mysterious music by tying forks,
combs, and knives onto the strings of the piano in order to warp the sound of the keys.
Zittrer also stated that he would distort the sound further by recording it onto an audio tape and make the sound slower.
The disturbing phone calls was performed by actor Nick Mancuso, director Bob Clark, and an unknown actress.
Mancuso stated in an interview that he would stand on his head during the recording sessions
to make his voice sound more demented.
The haunting, dissonant score that had never been released in any format
and thought to be lost or destroyed for 40 years was finally pressed in 2016 on vinyl by Waxwork Records,
that worked for a year with composer Carl Zittrer researching and tracking down the original masters.
After locating them, Zittrer spent many months constructing a cohesive Black Christmas soundtrack.
The entire album was then mastered and pressed on 180 gram clear vinyl and on a clear with blood splatter vinyl.
The Memory link contains the dvd-rip version of the soundtrack and not the Waxwork Records version.

Tombstone was a solo project from Cittadella, Padua, Italy, created by Emanuele Lago in 1993.
Lago has also participated in many projects like Alien Pathway 22, And The Posters

Crisantemo Nero, Immortal Agony, Kurai Keshiki and Lost Fairy Realm.
His music is a blend of experimental-post-industrial, noise and dark ambient 

with a gothic atmosphere inspired by old novels and tales. 
It could be called "gothic ambient", but it should not be mistaken 
for the typically keyboard-based works from other well known projects.
Terror and fear sonorities are created processing electrically natural noises and sounds, 

not taken from keyboards and neither following any musical composition theory nor using a sequencer.
The first tapes were industrial experiments rather obscure and perverse while the production of CDs 

were something original, both as background idea and inspiration and as sonorous atmosphere.
Most of the band's releases were issued by the Italian cassette label Psychotic Release that is run by Emanuele Lago 

and is specialized in industrial, ambient, ritual, and gothic music.
The label stopped operating in 1999 and restarted in 2012 to make CDRs and cassettes 
but only for Lago's and friends' projects.
Today the band is continuing under the name Black Mountains Chronicles.
