Midnight Syndicate, the musical duo comprised of composers Gavin Goszka and Edward Douglas, have announced that they will be releasing Monsters Of Legend, their 16th album, on July 19th. It will be a tribute to the “golden age of horror”, paying homage to the classic Universal, Hammer, and European horror films that shaped and set the foundation for the genre.
Edward Douglas states, “We want to make you feel like you are a character in one of those classic horror films – that you’ve entered a world where any one of the iconic characters from the Universal Horror and Hammer Films could be right around the corner.”
“Listeners will hear the influence of the Universal Monster, Hammer, and Euro Horror films from the 30s through the 70s, not only in the music but in the images the songs conjure,” added Gavin Goszka. “As we did on Carnival Arcane, we’re always trying to take things up a notch both musically and with the sound design. There is a lot going on in this one. Plenty to pull you in, spark your imagination, and keep hold of you anytime you’re looking to visit that mysterious place in your mind’s eye.”
