Edward Douglas of Midnight Syndicate

For our special Halloween interview, we caught up with Edward Douglas, half of the Goth/Horror Instrumental duo, Midnight Syndicate, whom we've featured a few times in the magazine in the past.  It's always great to reconnect with Ed and discuss not only what he's been up to but what his plans for the future are as well.  We sat down at NJ's Chiller Theater, a horror convention Ed attends every year to connect with fans and make new ones, and talked about everything from their latest CD, Carnival Arcane to their work in horror films and what's in store for 2012. 

Rob Acocella (DIGImmortal Photo) had a lot of fun editing this one, giving it an old movie reel treatment and adding in his own photo of a carnival scene (buy it here for yourself) to go along with the theme of the new album.

Watch the interview below and be sure to support independent music by finding Midnight Syndicate online at and on Facebook and Twitter.

Also, please support independent media like Paragon Music Magazine.  We are now offering banner and video ads, so please get in touch with us for more details if you are interested.  We are also accepting donations in order to finish our new website for and get all of our back issues up again, among other new features.

Mitch and Kal of American Fangs

We met up with American Fangs last month out on Long Island at Vu Du Studios. The band came out here to cut some new tracks and invited us out to hang and take some photos. We did an interview with Mitch and Kal, and hopefully this will help you all get to know them better. They're really talented, hard working musicians, and genuinely nice people as well.
