Dark Despair (Undead Trespass)
October 19th, 2009

To be perfectly honest, every year when I set upon the task of putting together my Halloween mix it gets harder and harder. The wealth of songs available that perfectly fit what you would think of as a "Halloween song" grows smaller all the time. So, that being said, I strove to compile a number of songs that evoke a Halloween feeling; dark, sinister, creepy, ominous, foreboding, etc. It's all in there. Much like the intentionally dramatic title, the music sets the tone for a proper Halloween experience.

I also took it upon myself to mix all the tracks together as one experience. Not all the transitions are the smoothest thing in the world but it works well and keeps things a bit tidier in iTunes. You can get that below or the individual tracks in the usual spot.

Happy Halloween!
