Cassette has a nice sound of it's own no doubt. Great for certain types of music, especially rock or heavy bass. Analog recording always feels like it's more.. "alive" and "softer" in a sense.

I can hear the clicking of the 8 track in the background 🙄😂 I heard they were making a comeback also. Reto release? On cassette? Not 8 track, do they even make those players anymore?

CD--YES! Cassette--no way. I remember those days--the tape getting twisted, or worse yet, caught in the machine!! Not big on "vinyl", either. Still have my collection (original), but lots of them have scratches from LOTS of use....

I remember buying my “haunted house sounds” cassettes as a kid in the 80’s. I proudly blasted the cheap sounds of chains and boooooos that made my Halloween ambience. Now we have these masterpieces from MS.

Love this. I did hear that cassettes are making a comeback.

Is this an early April fools joke?! 😀

Any plans to release the classic albums on vinyl?

Rerelease your debut album on cd! It's the only one I don't own.

We dig it! Long live cassettes!

Love your music haunting excellent. play it all October long👻💀🎃

I need those cassettes!

I never want to see a cassette tape again or at least I never want to use them… ever.

Oh, how I would ❤️❤️❤️ to have those back in my physical collection 🐱

That format CAN be really good, IF high bias or metal bias tape is used, along with HXPro and Dolby B noise reduction. Charge an extra dollar or two, if needed.

Cassette would be awesome

I still hope to get the Midnight Syndicate selftiteled album on cd some day, as far as i can gather it os the only one missing.

I love to be nostalgic, but cassette tapes were hell.

The first album !!!!! That thing is impossible to find!!!! Always wanted a copy

Yes!! I have BOTN on cassette! Fingers crossed I'll run across the self-titled tape one day!

This is great!

This is awesome!! 🖤

Me outside your window with a Midnight Syndicate cassette when pumpkin spice season hits.

I have all the CDs!

I have the one on the right on CD.

Wow that’s cool I never saw a cassett from you guys

For over two decades, composers Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka have been known as Midnight Syndicate, creating symphonic soundtracks to imaginary films that facilitate a transcendental and adventurous escape into the secret dimensions of the mind’s eye. To many of their fans, they are horror music pioneers brewing a signature blend of instrumental orchestral gothic music and movie-style sound effects. To others, they remain the first “haunted house band” that forever changed the Halloween music genre and became a staple of the October holiday season.  Still others, know them for their contributions to the use of music in the roleplaying and board game industries.
