Evanescence, Magnum, Ennio Morricone and 1917
“We've all fallen, but at the same time we're not broken. There is the hint that we are going to get up again.” - Amy Lee (Evanescence)
Evanescence's Synthesis Live is one of the 4 new titles we're releasing this week. For some who like a good punch of old school hard rock, we have the incredible Kingdom of Madness by Magnum to pick up at your local or online record store. Soundtrack lovers get their share with Thomas Newman's score of the critically acclaimed and multiple award-winning movie 1917. And last but not least, we have a black vinyl version of Ennio Morricone Western, the first part in our Ennio Morricone Themes Collection.

Magnum emerged from the NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) movement and debuted in 1978 with their album Kingdom of Madness. Prior to release, Magnum had toured the UK extensively with the likes of Judas Priest and built up a solid fanbase that way.
At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic's George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones' Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake's own brother among them. The music to the movie is composed by Thomas Newman (The Shawshank Redemption, American Beauty, Road to Perdition).
Music on Vinyl proudly presents the brand new Ennio Morricone Themes series, a wonderful and unique collection of the greatest music 'The Maestro' composed for movies over the past 70 years, divided into different Themes. Western contains a selection of defining Morricone songs, featured in legendary (Spaghetti-) Western movies such as "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", "Once Upon a Time in the West", and "A Fistful of Dollars", selected on 2 LPs.
Synthesis Live was a concert tour by American rock band Evanescence and the first where the band included an orchestra. Amy Lee has outdone herself in artfully not just re-interpreting but actually re-inventing these songs from her catalog.
