New from Kronos Records...
Il Gigante Di Metropolis
Kronos Records will release for the first time ever in any format the soundtrack
by Umberto Scarpelli starring Bella Cortez, Roldano Lupi and legendary muscleman
Gordon Mitchell in the main role. The film was a unique hybrid of 2 genres very popular
at the time, Peplum and Sci-Fi. Whereas the second is not as evident as the first once
can still definitely call the film a hybrid of the two.
The music has definitely played a major role in putting the sci-fi element under a stronger light.
The music for this unique film was composed by Italian legendary composer
Maestro Armando Trovajoli; whose music carreer spanned for over 60 years!

great composers of the 20th century such as Morricone, Trovajoli, Rota, Nascimbene,
Myers, Sondheim, Sarde and none less than the legendary Miklós Rózsa.

As the bad weather prevents their departure, the gathering kill time by telling by stories,
