On this week's episode of America's Most Haunted Radio, we talk with haunted music pioneers Midnight Syndicate.
For almost two decades, Northeast Ohio-native composers Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka have been known as Midnight Syndicate, creating symphonic soundtracks to imaginary films that facilitate a transcendental and adventurous escape into the secret dimensions of the mind's eye.
To many of their fans, they are gothic music pioneers brewing a signature blend of orchestral horror music and movie-style sound effects. To others, they remain the first "haunted house band" that forever changed the Halloween music genre and became a staple of the October holiday season.
After seventeen years, fourteen studio albums, three soundtracks, and a motion picture, for the recently completed 2014 Halloween season, Midnight Syndicate teamed up with the world famous amusement park, Cedar Point, to launch their first live performances. Midnight Syndicate Live! Legacy of Shadows -- a multimedia horror-themed concert blending live music, theatre, and film -- ran weekends at Cedar Point's 18th annual HalloWeekends event.
The multimedia horror music concert was called "top-notch and ambitious," "brilliant and artistically creative," and "a must see" by audiences and press alike. "We couldn't be happier with how the show came together," said Edward Douglas, "The response and entire experience has been amazing."
