Since 1997, The Slasher Film Festival Strategy has wallowed in the electronic/drone/synth underground. 2013 saw the release of "Crimson Throne" CD/LP on Foreign Sounds and "Wet Leather" on cassette from Mirror Universe. 9 of these tracks were released in June 2013 as part of that limited and sold out cassette on Mirror Universe Tapes. Now expanded with another 7 tracks, "Wet Leather" is fully realized. "Wet Leather" is the story of Charles, a 38 year-old wrongly institutionalized mental patient, newly released after 22 years who seeks revenge on the town that put him there. Here is what our good friends at Aquarius Records had to say about The Slasher Film Festival Strategy: "Not sure how we managed to miss this one, with a name like that. Well, making up for last time, this one got sent to us a while back, and we finally gave it a listen and we were thoroughly blown away. And what's not to dig? The work of just one man, Christopher Ashley, aka The Slasher Film Festival Strategy, Crimson Throne is a stunner, trafficking in a sound similar to the current crop of retro synth wranglers, conjuring up lost scores to never-existed seventies horror flicks and lost art house giallos, and while that sound has been done to death recently, A) it's a sound we never get tired of, and B) this guy does it way better than most. The synth sounds are thick and gristly, the melodies sinister and ominous, the tracks laced with skeletal drum machines, and sweeping epic backdrops, as far as Carpenter / Goblin worship goes, it doesn't get much better than this."
