After the huge success of the first 2 seasons, Invada are enormously proud to announce the release of Hannibal: Season 3 OST by composer Brian Reitzell, completing the collection.
Each season is split into two volumes - with each volume being presented as a double LP. The records have been pressed on both exclusive coloured vinyl, and a heavyweight black variant for wax purists.
The LPs are housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve, with artwork design featuring photography and stills from Season 3.
Every LP comes with digital download card.
The score features a collaboration with artist Siouxsie Sioux. Talking about "Love Crime", which was used to close out the series finale, Reitzell explains:
"It will be quite emotional, for the fans, and I wanted them to have a souvenir. I wanted them to have a song. I wanted them to have a melody, because I've not been able to really do that with this show. But since we're leaving - or at least taking some time away from the show, whatever the future is - I felt like I needed to give them something. Siouxsie was a fan of the show and she absolutely nailed it."
Artist, Marc Almond (Soft Cell, Flesh Volcano) also worked on the track 'Snake Charmer' with Reitzell, here he explains how the collaboration developed:
"I had done a track built around the Mason Verger character and the notion that he was a bit inhabited with this lunatic / Brian Jones / Moroccan / LSD vibe. Marc was at the London premier along with Siouxsie and I think Bryan Fuller playfully asked if I was going to do a song and sent it to Marc. He loved it and went into a studio and recorded a bunch of vocals that Ken Sluiter and I then took to finish the track... It's a fun song, the opposite or maybe the flip side of what I did with Sioux which is fitting for the show with its dreamy yet totally absurd reality."
Bloody Disgusting Magazine say of the release:
"Reitzell's score to 'Hannibal is an absolute masterpiece. His work helps the show transcend standard fare and elevates it to nearly sublime levels. The deceptive simplicity hides a depth and complexity that mixes wondrous beauty with absolutely terrifying and chaotic dissonance that mirrors the horror of the show, not just in the visuals we witness but in the characters we follow."
