Regular readers of Dread Central know that we’re huge fans of VSQ!
Vitamin String Quartet, or VSQ, is not a string quartet in the traditional sense. Rather, VSQ is a series of string quartet projects developed and produced by CMH Label Group, an independent record company based in Los Angeles. The CMH team works with an ever-evolving cast of arrangers, producers, string players and other creatives to bring each project to life. The series began unofficially in 1999, when CMH began releasing string quartet tribute albums on affiliate Vitamin Records. A few years down the road, this successful album set became known as “Vitamin String Quartet” or “VSQ”.

VSQ’s latest video offering is “Driveway to the Cemetery”, the main title song from George A. Romero’s seminal zombie classic Night of the Living Dead! Give it a spin below.
Inspired by our love for George A. Romero’s seminal zombie movie (as well as the fact that it’s in the public domain), we decided to put together a visual tribute to the film and its eerie music. Scored by our quartet arrangement of the opening theme, this clip uses scenes from the original film, as well as b-roll footage from our own The Walking Dead and Psycho music videos. It is meant as a loving homage to the low-budget wonder and resourcefulness of Romero, as well as the impact his singular film still has on our world over 50 years later.
