Italian band STEARICA premieres today new single “The Great Spell“. The song is taken from their upcoming album “Golem 202020“, a 10-track recording synthesis curated from the full soundtrack of the classic silent horror film ‘Der Golem, wie er in die Welt kam’.
The soundtrack was originally commissioned by The Italian National Museum of Cinema and the Traffic Free Festival and was performed in the Museum’s cinema as a live soundtrack to the film as part of the MiTo Settembre Musica in September, 2011.
The ten tracks, which cover the five chapters into which the film is divided, were recorded live in 2014 during a studio session organized to immortalize the work, with further embellishments added in 2019 while still maintaining the original arrangement.
To celebrate the centenary of the film, which was first screened in the theater on October 29th, 1920, the penultimate track ‘IN FLAMES (The fire spell – chapter 5)’ was released on 26 November 2020, and will be followed by the full album release on CD, digital and limited edition vinyl (150 copies on 180 gm red vinyl) formats on 19 March, 2021. UK independent label Monotreme Records will release the album worldwide except for Italy, where it will be released by Garrincha.
