Mixed, Not Stirred is a weekly column in which artists curate special, themed playlists via Spotify or other mediums.
In this week’s Mixed, Not Stirred, Austin metallers Runescarred (ex-Dead Earth Politics) put together a special horror themed playlist. Vocalist Ven Scott said of the mix:
There is a lot in music that inspires scenes or even full on films for me. Inversely, a lot of movies inspire songs or melodies and I know this is definitely the case almost 100% across the board for my contemporaries. This list is an amalgam of horror flicks and tunes that fold over on top of one another; where rock meets horror and horror just fucking rocks. Start off strong with a classic – “Re-Animator”! An ode to Herbert West by classic Texas thrash/speed masters Rigor Mortis. Fatten the list up with some epic horror soundtrack fodder and masked horror/shock band theatrics and close it off with Texas metal veterans, Warbeast! Why open and close with Rigor and ‘Beast? ‘Cuz TEXAS.
Check out the playlist below.
Scott is also in the process of funding his own short horror film. Details on that can be found here.
