New Discovery: Midnight Syndicate

I think I have a new music crush. Tonight I was listening to a podcast on and fell in love with tracks from a musical duo called Midnight Syndicate.

Consisting of Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka, these two have been creating “Instrumental Gothic, Fantasy, Halloween, Horror music designed to transport you to the darkest corners of your imagination” for 20 years.

Where have I been? Their music is perfect for writing, and exactly what I’ve been looking for.

From their Facebook: To many of their fans, they are Gothic music pioneers brewing a signature blend of orchestral horror 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. And some know them as the duo that created the first official soundtrack to the legendary Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game.

Their critically-acclaimed works are reminiscent of sweeping, complex masterpieces by artists such as James Horner, Bernard Herrman, Danny Elfman, Black Sabbath and King Diamond and have been featured as a part of groundbreaking films, television shows, video games and at haunted attractions, amusement parks and live performances worldwide.

Find Midnight Syndicate on Facebook, on YouTube and on their site.
