SMM Classic: Midnight Syndicate – The Dead Matter: Cemetery Gates

(Oct. 10, 2008)

Spooky dark and brooding, just the kind of music you want to hear while watching a horror movie, and a great set of songs to play while reading your favorite horror novel or writing your own chilling tale. Midnight Syndicate shows off their musical genius with The Dead Matter – Cemetery Gates. While not a direct soundtrack to The Dead Matter movie, the CD is more of a companion piece for it. Included are three bonus tracks, one of which is the theme to the movie. The organ work that starts off the first song, “Cathedral Ruins,” grabs your attention and lures you in, and each song traps you inside a world of spine-tingling fear. All the songs are instrumental, no lyrics of any kind, yet the composition of the notes unfolds like chapters in a novel that leads to a chilling climax. It’s a great CD to have for Halloween (or any other time you want to be scared).
