Midnight Syndicate Interview: Behind ‘Monsters of Legend’ and ‘The Axe Giant’

Posted 06 Sep 2013 in PODCASTS

"Monsters of Legend" CD by Midnight Syndicate (July 2013)In this episode of HaunTopic Radio, Midnight Syndicate stops by to fill you in on what they have been up to over the last few months and you also might learn something about them you didn’t know. We also announce the 2 lucky winners of some cool props for the month of August Give Away and tell you what prizes we are giving away for September. You won’t want to miss these treasures!

For almost two decades, composers Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka have been known as Midnight Syndicate, creating symphonic soundtracks to imaginary films that facilitate a transcendental and adventurous escape into the secret dimensions of the mind’s eye. 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 teamed up with Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast to produce 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, Danny Elfman, Black Sabbath and King Diamond and have been featured as a part of films, television shows, video games and at haunted attractions, amusement parks, and live performances worldwide.

    Great show guys! Midnight Syndicate’s music has been the soundtrack of my Halloween for years now. I remember shopping at an enourmous Halloween warehouse years ago, with all kinds of great scenes set up with the props, and the only question I had for the owner was ‘Who is this music you’re playing and where can I get it?’ That was my introduction to the Syndicate, and it’s been happy haunting ever since.

      Shane- Midnight Syndicate was my first experience with Haunt music too! It helps that they are great guys and are passionate about their tunes.
