The Haxans First Album “Party Monsters” Is Almost Here!

A year or so ago Rue Morgue Magazine had an article that, among other things, listed what former members of Rob Zombie’s band were up to. One of those people, Matt “Piggy D.” Montgomery, it said, was working on a new musical project with Ashley Costello called “The Haxans”. A quick Google search later and I found their website and checked out the couple of tracks they had released, and really loved the music!

Then… nothing. No album, no news. Until now! The Haxans started taking pre-orders for their very first full album “Party Monsters” on August 18th, and it’ll start shipping on October 11th. You can pre-order the album in a variety of limited edition formats at http://thehaxans.bigcartel.com!

Music for Haunts: Witch’s Tale

  • Posted : September 2nd, 2017

  • Comments: 0

Music for Haunts has given us a wonderful collection of music to kick off the 2017 Halloween season. Titled simply “Witch’s Tale”, every track was commissioned for a different theme park haunted attraction during the 2016 Halloween season. This album represents Music for Haunt’s favorite songs from the season. The most popular theme was Witches, so that sound became the focus of the album.

The collection opens with a quiet invocation, followed by the title track Witch’s Tale, which clearly references the score from the movie The VVitch (lonely, desolate strings) just for a moment, before swelling into something much more adventurous and stirring – this music would be just as at home in the opening credits of a major motion picture or as the key theme for a new Disney attraction.

The rest of the album is a wonderful spooky mix of themed tracks that’ll really get you in the mood for the season, from creepy scene-setters like “Surgical Clinic,” to the riotous carnival Creature Feature-esque track “The Ringmaster’s Overture,” to a really fun retro-style Halloween song “Trick or Treating Time.” Better still, many of the songs and themes reference each other, both lyrically and melodically, making the whole thing feel like one cohesive soundtrack to a movie you’d really love to see.

Here is the track “Witch’s Tale” – you can get the entire album at https://musicforhaunts.bandcamp.com/album/witchs-tale!

From TheHowler13:

Halloween Haunts

“I’m a huge Halloween fan. I decorate my house inside and out and I’m considered THE Halloween person in my family. A few years ago I thought we could use some new Halloween themed songs, so I took it upon myself to write 10 songs. I then got some awesome musicians to bring them to life. We tried to cover as many types of music as possible to appeal to everyone’s different  musical tastes at a Halloween party. The result was our CD, “Halloween Haunts”. If you go to the following link you can hear and purchase all of the songs. https://halloweenhauntsrevisited.hearnow.com/
