The CD consists of 24 tracks with the true Halloween enthusiast in mind. Perfect for the twisted backdrop to a commercial Haunted House event, or simply to ensure Trick-or-Treaters will remember a house for life.

These tracks are the culmination of direct feedback from a select group of both end-user “yard haunters” and commercial Haunts using our previous release “It’s Under the Stairs”. Because of it’s very limited distribution, some key tracks from that release are featured on TEEMING. The 1st track “Serious Young Demon” merges traditional horror string music, with a backdrop of psychotic sounds, random dramatic violin hits, and hellish reversed demons.

Departed Studios’ chief sound designer’s experience in production and soundscape ranges from work in Network TV and Cable programs to custom sound design for many top (Grammy winning) recording artists in the music industry. Recorded and mastered with both digital and vintage analog gear, TEEMING features…

A coalition of more than 20,000 small businesses and unions representing a half-million Californians vowed to continue their opposition to legislation that would make it a criminal offense to sell a helium-filled foil balloon in California. The bill was reported from the Assembly Business and Professions Committee after several previous failed attempts at reporting the bill were made on Tuesday, June 24, 2008.

“For the 20,000 florists, card stores and party shops that sell balloons across the state, this bill would mean a likely loss of $100 million in balloon sales and the potential loss of $900 million in sales of flowers and other merchandise. And for the state, this bill would compound the budget shortfall by reducing sales tax revenues by an estimated $80 million dollars every year,” said Dan Flynn, chairman of the Balloon Council, a national organization of balloon manufacturers, distributors and retail shops

Midnight Syndicate’s soundtrack to “The Rage” is now available at HOT TOPIC stores that have music sections as well as online at stores like VampFangs.com, Amazon, and CDBaby.
 
To give the soundtrack a listen, please stop by our MySpace page (www.MySpace.com/MidnightSyndicate). We’ve also posted the first round of reviews at www.midnightsyndicate.com.
 
Right now the band is working on their next CD, “The Dead Matter” which will be out September 1st.
 
“The Dead Matter” movie (the inspiration for that CD) is moving along quickly in post-production and should have it’s first trailer in May. Although the movie takes cues from Romero, the movie definitely has more of an old-school “White Zombie” approach to the living dead. “The Dead Matter” takes that and mixes it with a twisted supernatural story, vampires, and vintage-horror atmosphere.
 
The anticipated release date is late-2008 (www.TheDeadMatter.com) and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1055363/ .
