Midnight Syndicate - _Gates of Delirium_
(Entity Productions, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (9 out of 10)
Having followed this band for almost as long as CoC has been around (just comb through the many reviews we have done on this band), the latest installment of horror-inspired atmospheric numbers by Midnight Syndicate is no doubt their most impressive and mind-blowing. Midnight Syndicate, comprised of the duo Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka, take their visions of the macabre and transform them into huge theatrical numbers that are as eerie as they are magnificent to take in. This is soundtrack music that no doubt inspires the listener to become part of what is going on. _GoD_ is inspired by the madness that goes on within a turn-of-the-century asylum and the treatment of the patients, but there is a lot more to the ambiance of the album than just that. Each listen proves to be as rewarding as the last one. Truly pioneers in their field, this may just be the record that allows Midnight Syndicate to get noticed outside of the realm of fans that already swear by their talented work. Not only should the new disc be heard from start to finish without interruptions, may I suggest a dark candlelit room and just headphones. Geesh! I'm getting freaked out just imagining that. Take a bow Midnight Syndicate, your work is marvelous and oh so creepy.
