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.

I listen to this when I read during Christmas season. It’s on heavy rotation again.

Love what you guys do & it's so cool that you have Christmas music as well as Halloween-themed music!

I listen to it every year!

I was just wrapping presents, listening to your soundtrack. LOVE this so much!!

The only Christmas album I like! 😅

Do you consider creating a second Christmas or Winter Album, Maybe? 😍

My father and I listen to this(and your other works) all year round. Greensleeves and Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy are my favorites

So, again, your music "Dark" came up on the DnDify playlist last night during Dungeons & Dragons. The whole table stopped to listen. Even the DM, who was a professional musician stopped to admire. Best track all evening. Again, Gavin Goszka, those of us from Kohler Hall have a special quality--good sense for brilliant music. Thanks again! Keep going ole friend! -T

I listen to this all year

This is my favorite of all your Cds.

Interesting what is this about

I love it, especially Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy!

Hmmm, I think I see a new CD I need! :)

I downloaded it, and I love it! 😄

I already added it to our Christmas playlist 😁

I want this and winters night but I never got winters night. I’m definitely going to buy this

Just got this! I love it :)

It's about time for some news of a sequel album or the next chapter for Christmas?

Love your music. Been listening to Gates of Delerium almost every day since Halloween 🎃

I love Midnight Syndicate!

I recently bought a copy of this CD and I really like it. It's a nice mix of traditional Christmas carols and new material. I would describe it as the perfect soundtrack for a visit to an ancient Scottish castle that just happens to be slightly haunted. 👍

Love it! Where can i get the cd?

After all, there's the Krampus tradition and one of the most beloved Christmas plays, "A Christmas Carol", has ghosts playing big parts. Of course, there's also the "Nutcracker" ballet, with its enchanted forest. :)

This is a great album! Night of the Krampus is a personal favorite.
