Mondo Records Releasing the Tumbbad Vinyl

Featuring the arresting score composed by Jesper Kyd and original artwork by Luke Insect, the album is available on 2x 140 gram eco or Mondo exclusive Blood & Gold vinyl.
TUMBBAD’s haunting score was composed by Jesper Kyd (ASSASSIN’S CREED, BORDERLANDS) and immediately offers an unsettling atmosphere as we see Vinayak as a child, with sickly dissonant string lines and pounding percussion introducing the dark world of Hastar. Vinayak returns as an adult fifteen years later, where Kyd applies a more melodic approach that sees the score’s main theme dominate, with a melancholic reading on cimbalom. The motif then takes on a reflective feel in the final chapter before it explodes into chaos, as an older Vinayak and his son have the inevitable showdown with Hastar, ending in a dynamic reprisal of the main theme that effortlessly evokes the otherworldly powers contained in TUMBBAD.
