Music, music, music, get your Halloween music right here! It seems to be the time for the musicians to come crawling from their dark depths to produce those most haunting melodic sounds that chill people to the bone. I have yet another music review for you all and I have to tell you now, it’s really groovy!
Sam Haynes’ Welcome to the Horror Show: Haunt Music for Halloween 2013 can be compared to most closely with Midnight Syndicate music. While it doesn’t have the depth that a Syndicate piece does, it is haunting and well done with great sound and conveys a spooky mood really well. It’s probably fair to say that this is what we want all our Halloween CDs to sound like.
There are 18 tracks to shiver your spine and some of them include well placed vocal additions. You know, those creepy sayings or sound bites that help to enhance the musical and make it more layered and stalkery / killery like.
The songs include many instruments and sounds and it does have a nice layered feeling, so there’s a lot there but it’s not heavy handed at all. It’s kind of like a Master DJ was spinning these frightening beats in the cemetery get down on Halloween night.
The other bonus to this… it’s new. It’s not the same old hum drum songs that we play each year to get us in the mood. While those songs may be loved by all and have a special place, I’m all for FRESH additions to my petrifying playlist. New plus well done and sounds professional, yes I think I’ll take one and I hope you will to.
The list of music is great for haunts of all kinds, it’s also nice just listening to it or even some great background party music if you’re looking for a change up between the dance off and the Monster Mash. For $5 bucks you can’t really beat it. I mean for what you get, it’s a hell of a bargain! You can get your copy online here:
