About The Dead Matter: Cemetery Gates CD
Beyond the cemetery gates the dead do not rest easily. An ancient Egyptian relic, vampires, and the living dead lurk amongst its shadowy crypts. Midnight Syndicate’s signature soundscape and haunting symphonies call you into the world of the undead that inspired the upcoming motion picture . . . .
The Dead Matter: Cemetery Gates, the long-awaited follow-up to The 13th Hour arrives just in time for the Halloween season. Inspired by the themes of vampirism, living dead, and occult relics explored in the upcoming The Dead Matter movie, the new CD was created in the style of Midnight Syndicate’s other releases taking listeners on a musical journey into the darkest corners of their imagination.
About Midnight Syndicate
For the past eleven years, Midnight Syndicate have been creating soundtracks for the imagination. Their ten “soundtracks to imaginary films” have sparked the imagination of fans of Halloween, gothic music, heavy metal, the horror genre, the Haunted Attraction industry, and fantasy role-playing games, as well as set atmosphere for television shows, movies, and video games.
Not since Disney’s Haunted Mansion album and The Monster Mash has a musical act made more of an impact on the celebration of Halloween. Whether it’s an amusement park like Universal Studios, a theme park in Siberia, a local haunted attraction, the Playboy Mansion, a Halloween-themed Carnival cruise, an October Monday Night Football game, Misfits concert, the Ellen Degeneres show, or just a neighbor playing it out their window for the trick-or-treaters, Midnight Syndicate’s music has become synonymous with the Halloween season across the globe. They have been credited with elevating Halloween music from a collection of mass-produced and retreaded sound effects tapes into a legitimate genre that has attracted other musicians.
Their signature dark orchestrations and soundscape have carried them into the roleplaying game industry where they recorded the first official soundtrack to Hasbro’s Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game and were the first musical act ever to receive one of the hobby game industry’s top awards (the Origins Award in 2006). In 2007, they ventured back into the film world when they scored Precinct 13’s drive-in thriller, The Rage. In September of 2007, Midnight Syndicate Films completed production of a full-length horror-suspense thriller entitled The Dead Matter. Directed by Edward Douglas, co-produced by Robert Kurtzman (producer of From Dusk Till Dawn, co-founder of KNB FX) the movie will be completed at the end of this year and is scheduled to be released in early 2009 with Midnight Syndicate writing the score. The project marks the largest undertaking in the band’s history.
