"Carnival Arcane" receives accolades from the horror press

Midnight Syndicate's new Carnival Arcane has been getting incredible reviews from fans and press alike. Below are some new ones from the horror press. For a complete list of reviews, visit the Carnival Arcane REVIEWS section.

Apex Publishing - "...might be a high point in the band's already stellar and legendary career... What they have produced is a memorable album that blends historical realism with the recognizable fantastic elements that has helped make Midnight Syndicate one of the most popular instrumental-only groups in the world."

Darkest Radio - "...a triumph for Midnight Syndicate... up there with my favorites... 5 out of 5! Every carnival has a duality to it... Midnight Syndicate captures that duality perfectly. They harness the fantasy, the mystery, the sinister darkness, and weave it into a tapestry of unnatural phantasmagoria."

Bastards of Horror - "...beautiful but downright horrifying great music that is a must buy. 4 out of 4 stars."

Horror News - "...featuring beautifully sonic pieces of terror and mystery, 'Carnival Arcane' manages to haunt with a fun edge oozing evil clowns, sideshows and big top menagerie."

Sandman Cinema - "...Midnight Syndicate sets out to take 'listeners to the Lancaster-Rigby Carnival, a turn-of-the-century traveling circus with more than a few skeletons in its closet.' And they succeeded magnificently... a great story-telling CD that works on multiple levels."

Dr. Gangrene's Tales from the Lab - "I can't stop listening to it!"

Nightmare City Halloween Radio - "Another tour-de-force from Midnight Syndicate! ...their best work ever!"
