The Terrifying Sounds of 2020: The Top 10 Best Horror Soundtracks of the Year

Xanthe Pajarillo writes....It has been a tumultuous year for the music industry, but there was never a loss of resiliency or creativity. This year, the Lovecraft Country soundtrack made history by becoming the first-ever series scored by an online orchestra, with players from Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony and the Toronto Symphony recording solo in their respective areas. 

Fittingly called "gothic R&B," the score generated by Laura Karpman and Raphael Saadiq connects the thematic worlds of the episodes. This is their second time working with Executive Producer Misha Green, and she gave them "a wide palette to musically explore every conceivable genre while focusing on the hearts and souls of our heroes." The pair recorded the score remotely over Zoom, focusing on piano, strings, and guitar. The music supervision, helmed by Liza Richardson (The Watchmen, Leftovers), is also worthy of praise, with its powerful genre-bending selections.

Favorite Tracks: Ardham – Sundown, Goat Blood – Holy Ghost, Celestial Hippolyta – I Am., Tulsa, 1921: Catch The Fire (feat. Janai Brugger) – Rewind 1921, Dee's Transformation – Full Circle, Full Circle – Full Circle
