This most recent batch of Carnival Arcane reviews include: Rue Morgue, Dark Beauty Magazine, and Halloween Overkill.
Halloween Overkill – “…so infectious that I simply cannot stop listening to it! Midnight Syndicate’s use of sound effects mixed with their trademark orchestral sound is cranked up to maximum effect here, 5 out of 5 “Jolly Jack-O-Lanterns” and can officially say it is tied for first as my favorite Midnight Syndicate CD!”
Dark Beauty Magazine (#8) – “…sublime and perfect …genius and altogether disturbing in the most amusing of ways.”
Rue Morgue Magazine (#116) – “Those seeking more than the usual haunted houses and dark castles need look no further. Coulorphobics, however, probably should skip this ride. – 4 skulls”
Hayes Hudson’s House of Horror – “Never have kids laughing and singing sounded so scary! While some tracks are just cool, spooky sounding songs, some are very beautiful songs that could easily be used as title music for a big budget, blockbuster film… definitely getting your money’s worth with this one!”
