Press Reviews

Rue Morgue Magazine (#202) – “The album has a real narrative drive rather than disconnected cuts of mood music. You’ve got to give the band props for embracing such a sense of Gothic grandeur throughout.”

Count Gore De Vol (VIDEO)“Close your eyes and let the music drive your imagination to places neither you nor I want to go but it’s exciting to do”

Cinemusical“engaging thematic ideas that have a dark Elfman-esque quality with a bit more growl and Poledouris-style rhythmic ingenuity.”

Basement of the Bizarre“(Midnight Syndicate) is on a winning streak! … loved the mindset that ‘Bloodlines’ put me into… could visualize almost instantly where these songs could be used in my haunt.”

Movie Crypt“flows like a throwback to some of Midnight Syndicate’s earliest work but with a modern styling and refined edge — a deliberate work rather than an experimental one.”

Vamp Jenn’s Corner“Midnight Syndicate creates music that piques the imagination, and they succeed with the work they’ve produced in Bloodlines. It’s wonderful how the duo presents a story that listeners can interpret in their own way. There’s just enough narrative to set the basis of the plot, but there’s also room for people to imagine their own take on the Haverghast family history.”

Games Gazette (UK)“BLOODLINES creates and covers every scary, eerie, blood curdling, goosebump inducing sound your mind can imagine and then some.”

Ramble With Russel Podcast (#634, review starts at 12:58) – “The premiere producers of spooky music are still going strong!”

Justine’s Halloween – “Not just for Halloween!”
