Christmas: A Ghostly Gathering Press Release

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.”

Servitor is high up there but the whole album is kyckgcticjgcgjgjc

I'm really bouncing back and forth between "Servitor" and "Ancestral Decree". Both are standout tracks in the entire MS catalogue, and I love it!

Grand Waltz...A Light in the Attic...

Grand Waltz

I Won’t Tell

I won't tell...they are all good

The entire album...but I Won't Tell (with the ghostly intro) hits differently!!

Bloodlines & I Won’t Tell

The whole mini-album is a great addition to the Haverghast story, but “Servitor” and “Ancestral Decree” are my favorites.

The opening track "Blood Lines" sets the mood for the whole thing.

Grand waltz and sand of time.

Servitor for me!

I'm a bad fan I haven't bought a cd yet, will do it tonight.

Wedding March, Grand Waltz, Servitor.

All!

All of them!♥️

All of them. When listened to together, the album is one great song. I'm looking forward to any new material you all will release in the future. Brilliant musicianship as always!

Bonnie here - Well, gee, if I can only pick one, it’s “I Won’t Tell Sands of Time”😜

Tom here - I can’t pick just one, I love the whole album, but my top two are “Servitor” and “Sands of Time”.

Dude, seriously 😳??? This thing is on constant rotation right now. There's your answer!.. LOL

My favorite track is probably “Servitor”, however the way the whole album flows together and tells a story is what I tell everybody about. It’s captivating from start to finish. Great job guys!

I’m liking “ I won’t tell “ alot

i don't like it !!! i love it thank you guys it is awsome

sands of time

A Light in the Attic
