The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe is undoubtedly one of the most popular pieces of literature in the history of the horror genre, and here the poem gets the deluxe treatment with a meticulously professional delivery in every aspect. On this limited edition 7inch from Cadabra Records, the poem is here read by Anthony D.P. Mann, a Canadian-based filmmaker and actor with five feature films and a lifetime of stage and radio to his credit. In roles ranging from Count Dracula and the Phantom of the Opera, to Ebenezer Scrooge, his love of the classics is evident in his work. He is delighted to be lending his voice to a series of releases with Cadabra Records, indulging in his first passion – the theater of the imagination. The reading is backed by a score created by Italian composer and multi-instrumentalist Maurizio Guarini, most notably known as a core member of Goblin, who has released dozens of albums since the 1970s including soundtracks for cult classics like Suspiria, the European release of Dawn Of The Dead, and much more. Guarini adds a strikingly beautiful yet haunting score that accents the intense reading.
