Scary song of the week: COIL's Hellraiser

You may have heard that the long-awaited Scarlet Gospels, Clive Barker's meeting of the Cenobites and detective Harry D'Amour has a release date. The book is set for May 19, 2015 from St. Martin's Press.

I'm excited as it seemed that this book would never be unleashed upon the world. Barker is proving there is always hope (I'm not surprised that he would be the one to offer hope). This news combined with the released of the Director's Cut of Nightbreed makes me wonder if we will ever get a full release of the incomplete Coil score for Barker's 1987 Hellraiser. I'm going to say chances are slim, but we can enjoy snippets of what might have been. And so I offer three minutes of Coil's studio-rejected score for Hellraiser as the latest Scary Song of the Week.
