MIDNIGHT SYNDICATE TO CREATE SOUNDTRACK FOR ZOMBIES!!! BOARD GAME
CLEVELAND, Ohio, April 11, 2016 – Almost 13 years after releasing the first official role-playing soundtrack to the iconic Dungeons & Dragons® game, award-winning composers and dark music pioneers Midnight Syndicate have teamed up with premier horror game designer Twilight Creations to produce a soundtrack album for the zombie apocalypse-themed Zombies!!! board game. The dark instrumental album, which will feature new and previously recorded material blended with movie-style sound design, is designed to heighten the game play experience. The musical theme will center around the Zombies!!! board game and its 15 expansion sets that pay homage to classic zombie films, especially those of directors George Romero and Sam Raimi.

“I’m a big fan of Zombies!!!,” said Edward Douglas. “With the game celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2016, it seemed like the perfect time to undertake this project. We’re working closely with the Twilight team to create something that really enhances their players’ gaming experience. I think album will also resonate with our fans in the Halloween and haunted house industries.”

“Musically, it will be interesting to work in a modern setting,” added Gavin Goszka. “Most of our albums have been set in the Victorian and early 20th century, so this will definitely be something different and exciting for us and our fans.”

“Words cannot express how excited I am to have Midnight Syndicate doing a soundtrack for Zombies!!!,” said Twilight Creations co-founder Kerry Breitenstein. “For many of our players, Midnight Syndicate’s music has already been the unofficial soundtrack to their gaming sessions over the years. To have them working with us to create something specifically for our universe is incredible.”

The soundtrack is tentatively scheduled for release in September in coordination with the release of the Zombies!!! Ultimate Collector Set and Zombies!!! Ultimate Upgrade Kit.

Trick or Treating wouldn't be the same, without "Carnival Arcane".

You're very talented. Keep up the good work. I enjoy your music immensely!!

Carnival Arcane is one of my favorites!!!

Oh my head, how is Carnival Arcane already 11 years old? Ha. One of those traveling fairs with rides used to show up in the plaza down the street from me. I could smell the food and hear people screaming and I'd put that album on to go with it.

This points out the different feel of color vs black and white

Looking good as always guys!

It's cool seeing the original photo in color!

I too wish to look like a bad ass with a cane. #goals

Two of my favorite humans.

Wow. Blast from the past!

Carnival Arcane is my favorite!

One of my favorite MS albums

I'd like to meet their tailor!

Love the pic

This CD is on repeat each Halloween.

Merci pentru ca ai ascultat muzica noastra!

One more time, I love that one.. You two are really charisma! (I would like to say more, unfortunately i'm not very good English speaking.. but)

Now that's style.
