Instrumental horror music icons Midnight Syndicate are synonymous with haunting themes, gothic fantasy soundtracks, and musical storytelling at its most evocative. If you’ve visited a haunted attraction or amusement park anywhere in the world during the Halloween season, went trick-or-treating, or enjoyed a night of Dungeons & Dragons with friends, chances are you’ve heard their music. Since 1997, dark music pioneers Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka have been entertaining fans of Halloween, gothic music, haunted attractions, horror cinema, video games, and roleplaying games with their soundtracks to imaginary films. Featuring a signature blend of orchestral music and sound effects, Midnight Syndicate’s fifteen studio albums, along with their independent film, The Dead Matter, and several film scores, have earned them a worldwide following. In 2003, the band was approached to produce the first official soundtrack to the seminal roleplaying game, Dungeons & Dragons. Their success has led to collaborations with Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights and Cedar Point’s HalloWeekends, along with features on television shows, HSN, SiriusXM’s Scream Radio, video games, King Diamond tours, a Misfits live album, and several releases by major horrorcore artists. In 2014, the band began producing Midnight Syndicate Live!, a series of horror-themed multimedia concerts which continue to enjoy successful runs at Cedar Point’s annual HalloWeekends event to this day.
