One of this year's sublime treats arrives shortly before Halloween - like opening One's Trick-or-Treat bag at the Gates of Hell contained within a Gothic Mansion, with the beauty on the cover as your guide to the lambent hallways within. A most welcoming environment.
This offering seems a compendium of haunted attractions contained into one opus - a blissfully phantasmagorical scarescape where each shadowy chamber yields another familiar beautiful nightmare, in both instrumentation and theme; a morbid combination of horrors. A phantom voice beckons one on to accept one's heritage, as spectral whispers have done one's entire life.
Some resonant orchestrations with Testament & The Black Crypt alluding to The Haunted Mansion theme with oboe and melody; with The Portrait Gallery reminiscent of Danse Macabre. Of course, the title Wake The Dead reminds One of that stimulating traditional Addams game upon Samhain night.
Warlock, Vampire, Beast, GOTHIC is ideal for spookhouse presentations as well as personal atmospheric enhancement the year through.
Behold The Key...
By the light of the harvest bloodmoon, Grimstone Manor contains many secrets, unlocked to reveal undead ancestral treasures long dormant. Dare enter to haunt and be haunted. ∞
