Slash Writing Music For Universal Studios Halloween Maze

Slash is following in the footsteps of Black Sabbath and supplying the music for Universal Studios Hollywood Halloween 3D Maze this year.

Universal Studios Theme Park has selected guitarist Slash for Clowns 3D: Music by Slash. While Black Sabbath’s previously recorded music was used last year, this is the first time in Universal’s history that an artist has created original music for their Halloween production.

Slash has quite the job ahead of him as he needs to fit music around an event that is centered on a lot of people’s biggest fear, clowns. According to Universal “The psychedelic 3D maze will horrify guests, taunting and tempting them with terror and treats as they parade through “Sweet Licks Frozen Clown Pops Family Amusement Center,” a dilapidated roadside attraction and one-time thriving ice cream factory run by deranged siblings and their mad clown father, Sweet Licks. As this demented trio schemes to restore the family business by luring visitors with free ice cream, guests will soon find themselves on the menu as the key ingredient of a sick new high-protein ice cream concoction.”

Slash said of the production “I’m a HUGE fan of ‘Halloween Horror Nights’ and was inspired to partner with Universal Studios Hollywood because they are the founders of creating extreme horror. I’ve been composing music for as long as I can remember and jumped at the chance to be an integral part of this year’s event and create the original score for this creepy clown maze. I can’t wait to see the fans’ reactions and will be first in line to experience the maze myself.”

John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of Halloween Horror Nights said “It’s an honor to collaborate with one of the most iconic rock legends around. From the moment I heard SLASH’s original composition for the maze, I immediately knew he got it, as the vibe and feel of his score are so right on. He captured the exact tone we were looking to convey to our guests, and it’s great having SLASH be a part of this incredible event.”
