Top-selling Halloween composers Midnight Syndicate take on Yuletide classics with the release of their Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering album
CLEVELAND, Ohio (Sept. 10, 2015) – For over 18 years, the music of gothic instrumental composers Midnight Syndicate has been used to set the atmosphere in haunted attractions, amusement parks, stores, and homes worldwide during the Halloween season. Now, with Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering, listeners will find out what happens when Midnight Syndicate takes them on a Yuletide-inspired musical journey. The CD version of the album was released today, with the digital version becoming available on Thursday, October 1st.

The new album features the band’s unique twist on classic holiday carols blended with new and original material. “Our goal was to treat each song in a way that would merge familiarity with originality,” said Gavin Goszka. “There are definitely recognizable elements, but plenty of additional original material as well. It also incorporates the widest instrument palette we’ve used to date and represents what we consider to be the most varied collection of songs we’ve ever released. There are serenely beautiful moments here alongside more intense, darker tracks, and the end result is a thoroughly compelling and involving listening experience.” “With so many Christmas-themed albums out there, we wanted to make this collection uniquely our own,” added Edward Douglas. “I think we were able to do that.”

I wish you had some of the older shirts available. Those were my favorite!

I miss the days when you could walk into a Spirit Halloween, and they were playing Midnight Syndicate, with creepy lighting over their displays. They have gotten back to presenting displays after a number of years of pure warehouse-styles, but I miss the mini-haunted house effect of walking into Spirit.

Born of the night darkness descends are still no longer available right?
