    It’s funny how Ed and Gavin glaze over the question about Nox Arcana, considering Joseph Vargo of Nox Arcana was the producer of Born of the Night.and Realm of Shadows, and owned the only publishing company to give Midnight Syndicate their big break. Looking forward to the new album. I hope it has new music, though.

    Great interview. I am really looking forward to the new Hammer influenced album. BTW if you ever get a chance go see the prison from the Dead Matter in Mansfield, OH – http://www.mrps.org/. It’s the same one Shawshank Redemption was filmed at. They have a neat display there for Midnight Syndicate and The Dead Matter as well as Shawshank, Air Force One, and the Ghost Adventures TV show.
