Unsigned Metal Band VICIOUS DISORDER Featured In 'Halloween' Documentary

Springfield, Massachusetts-based unsigned metal band VICIOUS DISORDER has landed a song in the DVD documentary "Halloween: 25 Years of Terror", which was released by Anchor Bay Entertainment on July 25, 2006.

Three years ago, VICIOUS DISORDER (taking an idea and direction given to them from their business advisor Sullivan Bigg of Bigg Time Entertainment in Los Angeles) wrote a song incorporating the eerie classic theme music from the "Halloween" movies (written by John Carpenter in 1978). They recorded "Pure Evil" with producer John Ellis at Prism Sound in Acton, MA. The song was then submitted to the executive producers at Trancas Films by Bigg on behalf of VICIOUS DISORDER. The song was accepted and after some negotiations a deal was made. Along with the song being used in the documentary, the band has its own link in the special features section of the DVD menu. It includes a photographic slideshow of the band while the song plays.

The idea of taking a piece of recognizable theme music (not a song, but theme music) and turning it into a song is something that has not been done before. Bigg stated that Trancas Films executive producer Malek Akkad was "blown away" by the song. (Malek Akkad is the son legendary film producer of Moustapha Akkad ,who produced all eight of the "Halloween" movies as well as many others. Moustapha and his daughter Rima were tragically killed in the Jordanian hotel bombings on November 9, 2005). The song is also being considered for use in the highly anticipated next chapter of the "Halloween" franchise: "Halloween 9". Tentatively slated for release in October of 2007, the film will be written and directed by heavy metal singer/songwriter-turned-horror movie director Rob Zombie.
