Midnight Syndicate’s Monsters of Legend CD review
By Tim Gross
Over the last few years Midnight Syndicate has produced some good and fun music: Carnival Arcane, The Dead Matter, The 13th Hour just to name a few. But this project is their best work to date as they composed what seems like music that was lost from the Universal Monster era. Now of course this is what they were going for and were inspired by the classic Universal Monster films and soundtracks. But I cannot stressed how much this CD touch my old school monster nerve inside of me as I would sit and just listen to the tracks and slowly it pulled me into the world of Dracula, Frankenstein, etc. The music flows so beautifully that if I would close my eyes it was like watching a totally new discovered Universal Monster film from the 30s or 40s that was never released and it just happens to play in my mind like I’m alone in a theater enjoying this fun treat! I could imagine Dracula, The Mummy, and Frankenstein lurking around a castle in search of their next victim. Universal Monster fans shouldn’t just buy one copy; buy lots of copies for your fellow monster and horror movie fans because this music is some of the best I have ever had the pleasure to hear. For me Midnight Syndicate just didn’t put out a new CD but up their game to unbelievable heights that people need to take notice and purchase Monsters of Legend. Plain and simple if you don’t own a copy of this great Universal Monster inspired CD then I just don’t know how you can call yourself a horror fan… Midnight Syndicate be excited because I believe you gave a very memorable CD for horror fans to enjoy for years to come as I give the CD 4 out of 4 stars. The CD is available through iTunes, amazon.com, and select Halloween retailers.
