Prophecy of the Black Widow by Umberto
Released: Oct 2010
Label: Not Not Fun
Nearly everything about Prophecy of the Black Widow, from the campy song titles to the creepy textures, reads like an open love letter to Italian horror from the '70s. Indeed, an intense Goblin vibe permeates the album. But this isn't mere nostalgia -- more like the delicious confusion of. A good chunk of Prophecy of the Black Widow, including the stuttering drum machines and synth stabs, sounds influenced by John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's soundtrack work. Then there's the unmistakable Rockwell vibe in "Night Stalking" and "Everything Is Going to Be OK." Now that's really over the top.
