CD – Horror Soundtrack
The Fourth by Musica Cthulhuhia is a horror soundtrack published in association with Pegasus Spiele, the German Call of Cthulhu publishers.
The 78 minute audio CD features fourteen tracks grouped into four 'cycles':
Cycle one: From Beyond
Cycle two: 46 - 18B
Cycle three: Earth
Cycle four: Sin
The music is predominantly instrumental (electronic and acoustic) and it could be best described as an ambient synthesis particularly well suited to its goals: as background music for horror roleplaying and as a reflective work to relax and cogitate to.
This audio CD is not just a general 'Horror Soundtrack' but specifically relates to moods and themes for Call of Cthulhu. The accompanying insert booklet features a two page advertisement for Pegasus' Cthuloide Welten magazine and the German Call of Cthulhu RPG, so that would seem pretty clear.
The only language to be heard on the soundtrack is on track 7: 'By a Mad Mind' - English with a Germanic accent, quite gothic.
To make up your own mind, sample MP3 tracks are available to listen to via the fourthcycle.de web site.
The CD can be ordered from Pegasus Spiele or Amazon.de directly.
