A couple of months ago, I set out to create some bonus tracks for the extended edition of “For the Willow Wept…” My plan is to release a physical version of the release with custom artwork and some bonus tracks. I sort of finished the first bonus track, but it had more of a “haunted” theme to it that I’m just not sure fits with the common theme of Willow. Along with that, October approached and I decided to work on a tune that sort of plays homage to the classic Halloween style of John Carpenter and Alan Howarth.
Suffice it to say, I was pleased with the results thus far, and decided to sort of switch focus and do a complete release based on that style for which I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Therefore, I’m going to be hard at work on a “Haunted/Halloween” style release over the next year. I’m sure as I progress on it, some tunes will come out of it that don’t fit it as well, and will be included on the extended edition of Willow.
My thought process for the title of March of the Inanimate has to be the picture in this post. For me, one of the most scary elements in my mind are Scarecrows. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know. But the thought of something inanimate like a Scarecrow suddenly moving along just creeps the hell out of me.
As a Halloween treat, I’ve enabled the free download option on Soundcloud for the current two songs I have nearly complete. So give them a listen or a download and let me know what you think!
Also, don’t forget to have a SAFE and Happy Halloween, and watch out for all the little monsters, ghouls, and ghosts running around on the streets!
