The North Charleston metal makers Coffin Syrup were recently handpicked for a soundtrack by Shalenn Productions, indie horror masters out of Wisconsin known for titles like Incest Death Squad and Mediatrix. Coffin Syrup vocalist/guitarist Big Gore, also an independent horror buff, had previously sent the production company’s founder and filmmaker Cory J. Udler a copy of the band’s April 2014 release, The Unique Magic of Rigor Mortis. Ulder was so inspired by the ferocity he decided to include the track “Nvtrag” in his new flick The Girl Who Played with the Dead. “It couldn’t be more fitting,” Gore says. “It’s a black metal-inspired song championing the wonders of intimate release upon countenance.” You can see and hear the hardcoreness yourself by checking on the June 6 release date, where the film, and all previous Shalenn releases, will be available to buy or view on demand.
