Hammer Horror! Dragon Thrills! The First Kung Fu Horror Spectacular!

BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES. The soundtrack features music composed by James Bernard for the 1974 horror film directed by Roy Ward Baker (THE VAMPIRE LOVERS, QUATERMASS AND THE PIT), starring Peter Cushing as Van Helsing, Julie Ege, David Chiang, Robin Stewart, Shen Chan and John Forbes-Robertson.

In THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES, Hammer’s ninth and final Dracula film, Count Dracula rises from the grave in 1804 Transylvania and assumes the form of his Chinese disciple, Kah. A century later, Professor Van Helsing (Cushing) is in Chungking, lecturing a group of cynical students about the legend of Ping Keui, a small village terrorized by vampires wearing golden masks. Hsi Cheng, one of his students, takes the story seriously and begs Van Helsing for help in defeating the monsters. Van Helsing joins his son, Leland, a wealthy widow, Vanessa Buren (Ege) and Hsi Cheng on an expedition to Ping Keui. They travel with Hsi Cheng’s five brothers and one sister, all martial artists, to challenge Kah and meet their fate in Ping Keui.

For THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES, legendary Hammer Films collaborated with the equally legendary Shaw Brothers in Hong Kong to create a fascinating hybrid of both horror and martial arts genres. To score the film, the Shaw Brothers originally intended to score the film as they would their other kung fu films, using stock music licensed from music libraries or liberally lifted from already available soundtracks. Hammer’s production executive, Michael Carreras, thankfully insisted on an original score by James Bernard, the composer most associated with Dracula at the time through his music for the other Dracula films produced by Hammer. For THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES, Bernard composed one of his most engaging scores, blending his recognizable style with elements of traditional Chinese music.

BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents this premiere release of the original motion picture soundtrack to THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES  along with the contents of a 2 sided storyteller album released in 1974 of the story of THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES, narrated by Peter Cushing himself, both newly mastered by Digital Outland. THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES features music composed by James Bernard and arranged and conducted by Philip Martell and is presented by BUYSOUNDTRAX Records continuing in the tradition of our incredible series of soundtracks from the Hammer vaults.
