Partnership with Call of Cthulhu publisher Chaosium Games
A partnership has been announced between Midnight Syndicate and Chaosium Games (creators of the game, Call of Cthulhu) for The 13th Hour. "The 13th Hour is perfect for Call of Cthulhu," said Chaosium Games' Dustin Wright, "I've been listening to the album constantly since it's arrival." Midnight Syndicate has been looking forward to working with Chaosium for a while. When they developed the theme for The 13th Hour they knew that it would lend itself perfectly to Call of Cthulhu. The disc is designed around exploring the sinister side of the supernatural, mysteries of the dark and the unknown, while creating a sense of paranoia - all core elements to the Call of Cthulhu experience that make this legendary RPG so exciting and effective. Check out the Chaosium Games and Midnight Syndicate sites for more special updates.
It's no surprise that we're very excited about this new disc. Atmospherically and musically, The 13th Hour is definitely our favorite disc to date. We can't wait to share it with our fans. As always, we look forward to hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your support.
