Description
Here is my Second Annual Halloween music project, lots of furious fast work went into finishing this in time for Halloween. Whew! I only did one pass on mixing this,so what you hear is what you get, down and dirty!
asside from the drums, all instruments midi or otherwise are me, with the exception of some small string samples. All the rest of the strings however were all done on midi keyboard using my software.
I would like to thank Freesound.org for all of the sound effects on this track, individual thanks to the owners to follow.

Lyrics
All music and Lyrics By Robby Rhodes

On a harvest moon three hundred years ago
I became the thing that I am

The hounds gave chase to something in the woods
I followed musket in hand

In the distance I heard The howl of a Wolf
The dogs disapeared into the fog

The forest was bright with hot moonlight
As I ran across the bog

I approached a clearing up ahead in the trees
When Suddenly the horror brought me to my knees

My beautiful dogs were torn to pieces!
Now something's behind me. . .an animal breathing

I woke up bleeding in the morning sunlight
But somehow I feel more alive than dead

The gift of the Beast was immortality
But for me forever is filled with dread

I've gone through time known by many names
The Wolf Man
The Werewolf
Virkolak
Lobisomen
Lang Ren
Boudas
Licantropo
Kitsune

Lob Hombre!

Rob Hombre!
The music, instrumentation, effects and production are all outstanding. The first 2:15 is fabulous. Happy Halloween.

For some reason, there is 40 secs of silence at the end.

Feter!
Thanks so much for dropping in! I had a lot of fun making this, now I think it's time to leave behind Synths and FX laden projects for awhile. I need to get back to basics next.

Cheers!

Great job!
Wow Robby, this obviously took a lot of work. I had to listen on crappy work speakers because my modem at home is broken.

Can't wait to hear this one on the monitors in a couple days.


Good stuff bro!

Thanks man, this was really fun to do. Truth is though, I actually ran out of time to go in the direction I was planning. I had much more story in mind, but I wrapped it up in order to post by 10/31.
Glad you dug it, good to hear from ya!

Cool story! The minor key feel and the spooky fx contribute to the mood. Down and dirty or not, the production sounds great to me, nice job.

Karen,
Thank you so much! I wish I had your talent for the orchestral elements, I am a one finger keyboard player, makes those string parts iffy for me. But I think I pulled it off here.

Thanks again dear!

enjoyable leadup, exquisite orchestral adrenaline, which heads into the story and the guitar work... like rabid blood coursing through the veins, this music carries you along whether you are willing or not. A great ride. If we ever meet, it shall be in the day time.
ttfn,
Drakonis

thanks very much for listening so closely, I appreciate that. I am a sucker for these types of projects, heavy on effects, strings, drama etc. I have a love of cinematic scores and big production, my big influences are things like Tommy, Quadrophenia, Dark Side, The Wall, lots of U2 and Peter Gabriel.

Thanks again!

Sorry I'm late on such a well done festive tune. This is excellently creepy. Great lyrics and vocals. Love the cello and the chunky guitar. Well produced and well played. Enjoyed!

I have been playing guitar from the age of 15, I grew up surrounded by good music. My parents were hippies durring the 60's and 70's, I credit them for most of my creative energy. I had fantasies of being a Rock Star at the age of 10, the first album... [see more]
