An Even Scarier Solstice is a sequel to our strangely popular A Very Scary Solstice. This year we've assembled better musicians, more singers, and 21 new songs of holiday horror.
The CD features a cast of more than 30 professional singers with each number beautifully arranged and fully orchestrated by Troy Sterling Nies (composer for the HPLHS film The Call of Cthulhu). Styles range from rockabilly to middle-eastern to grandly gothic and just plain weird. We've even set Lovecraft's poem, "A Brumalian Wish" to music to create (we think) the world's first original Lovecraftian Christmas carol.
Our new and improved sing-along songbook features a handy pronunciation guide, an introduction by celebrated mythos author Ramsey Campbell, and the full lyrics to all of the carols, complete with ample footnotes teeming with bizarre trivia about the carols and their underlying mythos connections! And as if that weren't enough, we've included sheet music for many songs!
"But I don't want the CD or awesome songbook, I just want the songs" - this link is for you.
Still not enough? Then gird your loins for our Unbearably Scary Solstice combo complete with tentacle stocking.
