The first six reviews for the new Carnival Arcane CD are in. Thank you also to the fans who have emailed us and/or posted their comments on Facebook!
Rotting Flesh Radio #242 – “…an absolutely tremendous album! 5 out of 5! Midnight Syndicate has maintained their epic signature sound while continuing to grow musically.”
Haunted Radio (review starts at 8:00) – “This is a must-have CD. Wow…unbelievable!”
Love-It-Loud – “…arguably their strongest album to date.”
Drive-In of the Dead – “Gavin Goszka and Edward Douglas have done it again… a terrific ‘soundtrack to an imaginary film’ loaded with realistic turn-of-the-century sound effects and seriously sinister atmosphere. To be honest, I had my doubts (the) subject matter would be too narrow… (but) this IS Midnight Syndicate we’re talking about. Who else could take a theme like a circus and completely turn it on its head? ‘Carnival Arcane’ exceeded my expectations.”
Video Vault – “a creepy, fascinating take on the Carnival that begs your imagination to run wild… a great listen…already made its way to the top of my playlists … Only King Diamond’s themed albums such as ‘Abigail’ and ‘Them’ do as well of a job of telling a horror story through music and Midnight Syndicate does it repeatedly without singing. Quite a feat in my book.”
Monsters From The Basement – “I enjoyed every second… From the minute you first put this CD in the player you are transported to another world… a very unique musical experience. Midnight Syndicate hit the nail right on the head.”
