The Dead Matter: Cemetery Gates, the long-awaited follow-up to The 13th Hour, arrives just in time for the Halloween season. Inspired by the themes of vampirism, living dead, and occult relics explored in the upcoming The Dead Matter movie, the new CD was created in the style of Midnight Syndicate’s other releases, taking listeners on a musical journey of their own creation.
“The themes from The Dead Matter movie were a perfect match,” says Gavin Goszka. “They allowed us to expand on familiar territory as well as explore new musical ground and add to our instrumental palette.”
“Although this is not the soundtrack to the film, several tracks from this disc will be appearing in The Dead Matter movie,” says Edward Douglas. “The disc also features bonus material that Gavin wrote specifically for the film. Those tracks mark the first inclusion of gothic rock songs since the self-titled debut in ’97 and are a fitting complement to the rest of the disc and the movie.”
The Dead Matter: Cemetery Gates is available at Amazon.com.
