We told you it was going to be a big year for Midnight Syndicate. While their movie opens in August, right now they have released their first ever music video. We have a look at it below. For those who are attending Haunt Con this weekend, you’ll be able to see it tomorrow night. Click below.
From Midnight Syndicate:
featuring clips from their upcoming ‘The Dead Matter’ movie
Produced as a part of Midnight Syndicate’s 13th Anniversary celebration, the video marks the first time band mates Gavin Goszka and Edward Douglas have performed together live. Also featured in the video are fellow Cleveland music icons Jeff Hatrix and Tom ‘Schmotz’ from the heavy metal band Mushroomhead.
The video was directed by David ‘House’ Greathouse whose music videos for Mushroomhead won him MTV2’s ‘Headbangers Ball Best Music Video of 2007’ award and a spot on the new ‘Saw VI’ DVD. Robert Kurtzman (creator of ‘From Dusk Till Dawn,’ ‘Wishmaster’) and his company Precinct 13 Entertainment co-produced the video which will also be included as an extra feature on ‘The Dead Matter’ DVD.
‘Dark Legacy’ was shot at the historic and reputedly haunted Phantasy Theatre in Lakewood Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland.
Midnight Syndicate has been creating instrumental Halloween music and gothic horror fantasy soundtrack CDs for the past thirteen years. The group’s music has become a staple of the Halloween season as well as a favorite in the haunted house, amusement park, role-playing game, and gothic music industries. From Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights and Hugh Hefner’s Halloween parties to Monday Night Football, X-Box games, the classic ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ roleplaying game, and Barbara Walters specials, the music is designed to take listeners on a musical journey into their imagination.
About ‘The Dead Matter’ movie:
A guilt-ridden young woman desperate to contact her deceased brother discovers a powerful ancient relic that controls the dead. Her dark obsession drags her into the tangled world of two warring vampire lords (Andrew Divoff of ‘Lost,’ ‘Wishmaster’ and Tom Savini of ‘Friday the 13th,’ ‘Dawn of the Dead’) each with his own sinister plans for the artifact and a vampire hunter (Jason Carter of ‘Babylon 5’) who will stop at nothing to destroy it.
