                The movie, The Seal of Confession (Secreto de Confession), is an intertwining of three individual's stories - a policeman, a journalist and a corrupt senator.  The policeman, traumatized by the death of his father, finds himself investigating a series of strange murders.  The journalist is searching for justice for his murdered parents.  Somehow, the corrupt senator is involved in all of this.  Meanwhile, a priest has just received the confession of a hitman with a warning...that he is the man's next target.

                The musical score of The Seal of Confession was created by Venezuelan composer Freddy Sheinfeld.  Known for his compositional work in dramatic film, Freddy Sheinfeld is also an accomplished electronic music artist and has recently released music under the alias Space Within.  Some of his musical scoring includes episodes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Cybergeddon, Galapagos 3D, episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! and Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Movie.

                Recorded in Macedonia and featuring a 40-piece string ensemble, The Seal of Confession Soundtrack features an awesome dramatic music score.  There is a piano theme in Now It's Your Turn that speaks to a troubled mind.  When coupled with the strings, one gets the idea that the mind is less troubled and more disturbed.  You Are My Natural Selection is my favorite track and features a rich acoustic guitar sound.  I love a well-played guitar and this track is simply beautiful.  At times, the score of The Seal of Confession is quiet and calm.  Other times, electronic sound invades and we get a hint of electric funk.

                The Seal of Confession Soundtrack is a blend of sounds and tones that make it quite unique and excellent as a stand alone album.  I'm fairly certain that the score reflects the visuals of the film and enhances the drama.  This is an excellent score by Freddy Sheinfeld and one music aficionados won't want to miss.
