MIDNIGHT SYNDICATE RELEASES ZOMBIES!!! BOARD GAME SOUNDTRACK

CLEVELAND, Ohio, September 8, 2016 – Award-winning composers and dark music pioneers Midnight Syndicate have released the Zombies!!! Official Board Game Soundtrack. The new release features Midnight Syndicate’s signature blend of sound effects and instrumental music set in the modern day, post-zombie apocalypse world of the Zombies!!! board game. “We wanted to design a soundtrack that would not only heighten the Zombies!!! game play experience, but also appeal to all fans of zombies and our friends in the haunted attraction industry,” said Edward Douglas. “I think we were able to achieve that.”

“Given the character and core elements of the game, I think that both of us immediately felt that this album should focus on having a more modern, aggressive sound. In order to achieve that, we brought in a lot of electronic and percussive instruments and kept the fundamental game scenarios firmly in mind, approaching it more as an actual soundtrack than as a collection of songs built around a particular theme or setting. While there are a few tracks that are more situation or location-specific, most are intended to evoke the general feel and atmosphere of the game world, allowing you to play along without interruption,” added Gavin Goszka.

“The soundtrack is a perfect complement to the game,” added Twilight Creations co-founder, Kerry Breitenstein. “I couldn’t be more excited for the Zombies!!! fans to hear it, let alone the rest of the world!”

The album is available at www.MidnightSyndicate.com as well as digitally on CDBaby, iTunes, and Amazon.com.

Absolutely! Artwork is stunning, and video flows with soundtrack very well. This is one of my favorite tracks off Monsters of Legend. It transports you to a dark erie forest, damp and very foggy. I can smell the moss, dirt and fear. It gives such a helpless feeling as you run for your life from whatever is chasing you. Your body is failing, muscles fatigued and yet you keep running! Love it!

Watched the video last night and, wow is he an awesome artist! The music and artwork blend perfectly.

Awesome, I dig it! Black Woods, takes me back. And Chad's work is amazing as well!
