Ed and the rest of the creative folks at Midnight Syndicate have been friends of GeekintheCity.com for a good long time now. So, whenever I hear more about their ambitious movie project, The Dead Matter – I get excited! You might too after watching this:
Who are Midnight Syndicate? You can check out some of our earlier reviews (here) and interviews (here). The short answer is this; Midnight Syndicate is a dedicated group of people that got tired of the standard Halloween horror “music” and decided to make honest and atmospheric music. That was over 13 years ago and they never looked back. I could go on and on, but it might be best to let the masters take over from here!
Midnight Syndicate Films has announced plans to release a special edition of The Dead Matter DVD that will include two bonus CDs by gothic Halloween music artists Midnight Syndicate. It will be available at all Hot Topic stores nationwide on July 30th. The specially-priced set will include The Dead Matter DVD, the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack CD by Midnight Syndicate, and a new Midnight Syndicate 13th Anniversary greatest hits CD entitled Halloween Music Collection.
