Stunning and spectacular makes the headlines for Bela Lugosi and their spectacular classical album, "Scratch." Don't let the band name, Bela Lugosi of horror film fame, scare you off, as some of this twenty seven-track disc is dedicated to paying homage to highly acclaimed classical composers such as Bach, Chopin, Brahms, and Mendellsohn. Created by Misha Bodnar, an accomplished cellist, this group rises up to incredible heights with their fantastic abilities. The entire collection of pieces is performed by magnificent and breathtaking strings that are strong and brilliant yet dazzle with emotions pouring from the heart. Listeners will feel the fire and fury of the strings on "Sabre Dance" and "Bach Invention in F Major," as this intense, fevered precision is no easy task. Also interwoven into the disc are clever vocal clips of Béla Lugosi himself on "Béla Lugosi in One Body Two Many" and "Béla Lugosi in The Body Snatchers" which emanates an air of mysterious qualities. Although this may be an odd lot of musicians who may consider themselves gypsy street performers, the quality of Bela Lugosi's classical performances on "Scratch" will show listeners how awe-inspiring and tremendously exquisite this album truly is.
