Night Has a Thousand Screams is structured around subtly repeating motifs like that, subtly bringing back small keyboard parts to mirror the way a horror film will often return to its central theme song. It's when Hill reaches into purposefully more restrained areas that the album picks up its eerie glow. Hill's work is steadily gaining its own hue, and this album is a step toward a recognizable Umberto sound that won't instantly be tagged with all the influences he so adores. It's interesting that he's had a minor breakthrough by having some visual stimulus to compose around. A fully-fledged soundtrack assignment might push him even harder to create his own recognizable strain of musical terror.

Their latest excursion into sound comes from Umberto, and the record is as diverse and enticing as it is challenging; starting from the opener, "Boston, 1942", a sludgy synth din making way for flurries of industialesque drones which inevitably head down deeper waters on tracks like "The Puzzle" and the jagged, 4/4 arrangements of "The Pool".

Once a member of prog heavies Expo ’70, t Matt Hill works a darker ambience into his work as Umberto; his new Night Has A Thousand Screams is the score to an early ’80s Spanish slasher film from which the album’s title is roughly translated. The threatening dissonance, eerie synths, and throbbing urgency of the album unravel an experience just as menacing and delightfully cheesy as you’d expect from an ’80s horror movie. The tropes of horror soundtracks are all here in various states

Hill's work is steadily gaining its own hue, and this album is a step toward a recognizable Umberto sound that won't instantly be tagged with all the influences he so adores.

Night Has A Thousand Screams’ was pieced together with love and a deep appreciation for soundtracks passed, but in the same breath we’re not subjected to a simple retreading of ‘The Beyond’ and ‘Suspiria’. There’s a knowledge of contemporary electronic music in there, occasionally surfacing in ‘The Investigation’ and ‘Paralyzed’ which gives the album a backbone of modernity. Sure the Italian film soundtracks of 1975-1983 are the starting point, but Umberto has made this sound his own, and ‘Night Has A Thousand Screams’ is all the better for it. View more.
