Nearly 10 years in the making, the remastered, never before available soundtrack, has landed on vinyl and digital in record stores nationwide and online at www.tromaswar.com!
Composed and performed by Chris DeMarco and directed by Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, TROMA’S WAR tells the story of a group of marooned citizens who stumble upon a terrorist plot to take over the United States. With no help in sight and no way to contact reinforcements, it’s up to these ordinary people to save the world! A political satire of the glamorization of war in the 1980s, TROMA’S WAR is considered Troma’s “undiscovered masterpiece,” and the film celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2018.
Released in collaboration with Locked Groove Recording Co., a Colorado-based independent record label, the original motion picture score to TROMA’S WAR has been painstakingly remastered from the original master tapes by the composer at Dreamco Music Studios in Kennesaw, GA.
Featuring the complete motion picture score including cuts not used in the final film, TROMA’S WAR will be released on 140-gram red and orange “Triumphant Explosion” colored vinyl and is limited to 1000 copies worldwide. A download card containing the score along with extended cuts will be included with the vinyl release and also available separately at www.tromaswar.com.
Chris DeMarco has been writing and performing music since the early 1970s, playing with the likes of Billy Joel, Tom Scholz (Boston), Dick Wagner (Alice Cooper band) and a virtual “who’s who” of legendary musicians, which culminated in the formation of his band Riff Raff, which was signed to Island Records. Chris has released five full-length albums, the latest of which, Genetic Marker, was released in 2016. Chris also composed the music for the 1989 Troma film, TOXIC AVENGER PART III: THE LAST TEMPTATION OF TOXIE, based on the music of Antonin Dvorak.
