va-Calling All Fiends
Halloween is meant to be scary, right? Year after year we dust off the old Halloween novelty records. While those are fun for parties, they are not at all scary. Oddio Overplay put the challenge to musical artists the world over to conjure up Halloween music that is "frightening, damaging and disturbing." No "Monster Mash," instead creepy soundtracks for a fiendish Halloween. The artists succeeded with CALLING ALL FIENDS! Some of these pieces will creep you right out of your skin. Do you dare to listen alone in the dark?
