Bring Me The Horizon’s Lee Malia once scored a horror film

'Pyewacket' was released back in 2017, but Malia's involvement has only recently come to light

Bring Me The Horizon guitarist Lee Malia has spoken about the experience of writing the score for a 2017 horror film.

The Canadian production Pyewacket was released just under two years ago, but the movie has received an unexpected boost in popularity following recent comments Malia made about working on the project.

Speaking to Music Radar earlier this week, Malia said: “I’ve already scored a film! It’s a horror film called Pyewacket. It’s about a witch, and that’s the old witch’s name. It’s by a Canadian producer. On our ‘There Is A Hell…’ CD there is an instrumental track, which was really soft and atmospheric, and he used that on one of his films.

“We got talking to him and he was like, ‘Well what do you think about doing my next film?’ So I did all this score for him,” he revealed.

“That’s a lot of atmospherics. There are no guitars or anything. It’s all just weird stuff. But I really enjoy it because I love watching horror films.”

Asked what he learned from the experience, Malia added: “It’s a good thing to have on my side; when we are doing a CD, I can feel if a section really needs guitars or not.”

Bring Me The Horizon were forced to cancel a string of tour dates last week after frontman Oli Sykes ruptured his vocal cord.
