“All Hallow’s Eve… Deep within the Haunted Forest, beyond the old gypsy camp, shadows gather in a place known as Raven’s Hollow. Strange chants echo through the trees and join rhythmic drumming, summoning forth creatures of the night. No one enters these woods after dark, for this night begins the Season Of The Witch.”
Since I’m a big fan of movie soundtracks, when I first came across Nox Arcana, I just loved what they were doing. If you’re not familiar with them, they create amazing soundscapes, like a soundtrack but without a movie. Except, there is a story or theme inside the music. Whether they’ve tacked vampires, haunted houses, Lovecraft, Poe, or a demented circus, they continue to create creepy audio nightmares for listeners. Here’s is a track from the new album.
It’s been a couple of years since their last release, so we are damn excited to hear their latest. This time out, the theme is witches! The album is filled with “spellbinding melodies and wickedly dark orchestrations to enchant the witching hour”, according to Nox Arcana’s Joseph Vargo. He goes on to say that ” This album will explore the various aspects of the craft, both good and evil, with witches who are enchantingly beautiful as well as those who are very, very wicked.”
