Midnight Syndicate: Halloween and Gothic Soundtracks

When it comes to Haunt Industry music, once set of pioneers always pop into your head the moment you think music to enhance your attractions’ room….Midnight Syndicate.

Midnight Syndicate were the pioneers when it comes to Haunt and Halloween Sountracks for your Attraction, Home Haunt, or just to enjoy some Spooky Tunes. From such albums as Vampyre, to the Cemetery Gates, and The Dead Matter, they have done it all, well except a Circus Theme until now.

‘Carnival Arcane’ marks the team of Ed and Gavin’s jump into the long anticipated, long asked for, long needed Evil Horror, Halloween Circus Theme fans have been asking for!

Ed had the pleasure of stopping by with Rotting Flesh Radio while at Transworld (Click Here to Hear Ed Douglas of Midnight Syndicate on Rotting Flesh Radio at Transworld 2011), and there he spoke about the fans needs, wants and how they have finally tapped into their dark minds to create the perfect circus to accompany us haunters, halloween enthusiasts and twisted minds. The CD is officially dropping on August 2, 2011 following a red carpet roll out release party on the 1st with Midnight Syndicate, Fans and Friends.

Edward Douglas stated:
“We had a difficult time picking a Carnival Arcane “preview” track as it’s hard to single out any one track as being indicative of the CD. There’s a lot of things going on in this one. The song we chose is Freakshow as we think it bridges some familiar elements with a taste of some of what’s in store… Inspired by research, this track incorporates some of the more tragic elements of carnie life and the original freak shows as well as the macabre. We hope people enjoy it.”

The CD ‘Carnival Arcane’ centers around the Lancaster-Rigby Carnival, a shadowy, turn-of-the-century traveling circus with more than a few skeletons in its closet. “We spent a lot of time researching circuses and carnivals of that time period to ensure that the sounds and music work together to immerse you in this world,” said Edward Douglas. “There’s also a big tip of the top hat to Mr. Bradbury whose work inspired many of the more horrific elements on the disc.” Carnival Arcane also features the vocal talents The Dead Matter alumns Jason Carter, Brian Van Camp, and Dennis Carter, Jr.

So as we prepare for the big release and Midnight Syndicate’s return on RFR, Sit Back, Relax and Rot Away to….FREAKSHOW! For more on Midnight Syndicate visit them at:
