Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with horror symphonic masters Midnight Syndicate to bring you an exclusive stream of the new track “Lord Of The Realm”, which comes from their upcoming album Monsters Of Legend, out this Friday, July 19th (pre-order here). The track is an eerie, string driven gothic orchestral piece, something perfect for those of you hankering for the Halloween season.
Midnight Syndicate is comprised of Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka, who have been composing and releasing albums for nearly two decades. Monsters Of Legend marks their 16th album. It is an homage to “the golden age of horror”, inspired by the Universal classics, the Hammer Horror films, and the European films of the 60’s and 70’s. The album also features voiceover artist Dick Terhune, who is often called the “Voice From Hell”.
Douglas comments, “Those classic horror films are at the core of what we do in Midnight Syndicate, so to do an entire disc based on them was a lot fun. Musically it required us to use more traditional orchestral instruments, and use them in more ways than we have in the past. The result is a fuller orchestral sound with a heavy classical music influence.”
Goszka adds, “…we feel we’ve taken things up a notch both musically and with the sound design on this release. There’s a lot there to listen to and lose yourself in.”

Composer Edward Douglas comments, “One of the first tracks I wrote for the new album. “Lord of the Realm” is a good sampling of some of the different classic horror stylings we feature on “Monsters of Legend.” You can really hear the Bernard Herrmann and Hammer Films’ James Bernard influence on this one!”
