The Beast Must Die OST


Another rare number right here on Columbia Japan. This is an amazing dramatic orchestra style LP from Japan. It is by a group called Arakawa. I, unfortunately have not had the pleasure of viewing this film, all though I have heard mixed reviews. I can't seem to find any information about this album but can assure you I am a huge fan of it, and hope you enjoy it too. how about a preview?



  1. Thank you for this, great soundtrack. Still looking for the film!

  2. The YouTube trailer is for a British Horror film called The Beast Must Die that is indeed about a werewolf. The soundtrack you posted is NOT for this film. I do not know what film the soundtrack you posted is , but it is not the soundtrack to a "Japanese film about werewolves." Most likely, the soundtrack is this film...a Japanese crime film with a similar title...http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0324604/ I just hate to see misinformation on the web especially when it is pertaining to a cool film with an even cooler soundtrack which was composed by Douglas Gamley - it remains unavailable. Happy digging.

    1. Hmmm. Thanks for the heads up MangoFilth. From what I know, it is a soundtrack for a movie called..."the beast must die". Looks like the youtube clip I posted is from "another" version of the film. I will correct.

  3. I agree with MangoFilth, coz I'm lookin for the british "the beast must die " ost by Douglas Gamley since many years! Does anyone know if it has been released on LP ???

    BTW here's the IMDb link for "the beast must die" that I'm talking about: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071200/

  4. It'd be great if somebody could provide track names. BTW, anybody else notice the "copy finished" sounds every once in a while on this? I kept thinking I was copying files on my Mac, then realized it was coming from these tracks. Like around 0:49 of track 11 is one example.

  5. Ok,

    This film title really translates more like “The Beast to Die”. You can read a little more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beast_to_Die
