Bobby Krlic, aka The Haxan Cloak, has composed the complete soundtrack to the forthcoming Ari Aster-directed horror film, Midsommar.

Already being dubbed as a ‘horror masterpiece’, the feature-length by the director of Hereditary tracks a young American couple travelling to Sweden and attending a summer festival.

Krlic’s last album as The Haxan Cloak was 2013 masterpiece ‘Excavation‘, while he’s worked on various film and TV scores since then, collaborating with Atticus Ross on soundtracks for films like Almost Holy and Blackhat and scoring Netflix series Seven Seconds.

“Trying to live up to the expectations of a director who wrote the script to my music was an intimidating task,” Krlic said, “but in the end I believe it’s been the most rewarding and deeply educational experience I’ve ever had. Not only was working with Ari Aster an honour, but the work was a true collaboration.”

Midsommar arrives in theatres nationwide on Wednesday July 3rd. Watch the trailer:

Midsommar’s score will be released on July 5th via Milan Records, with a vinyl release to follow later.
