Halloween Incarnationis MMIX coepit; et feria VI in MMXIII, I.M. Baron reincarnated. Ecentricum exul Purple majestatis, id est a parte tempore Zombie interfectorem ex eclectic praebitorem, Electromagnetism; quae est in imaginatione, est a major Metropolita area de super terra, I.M. Baron, somniis interpunctione, in studio sine manibus incarnatus est de praeterito.

01 Trick or Treat
What is with the brain and what is it doing to the mind’s effect on the ability of our senses to perceive what is real and what is not? This Quasi-Latin-Country Rockish-Rhythm-Bluesy-esque first track pretty much sums up the album’s ghost train, train of thought; priming you for what unexplained anomalies await ahead. You have nothing to fear but yourself…and whatever happens to you after you have died.

02 Ghost Hunter Go
DVDs are great for the replay when something catches your eye it didn’t see the first time. With dirgelike verses followed by rousing choruses ending with wraithlike warnings, this heavy rocker is having fun with paranormal programs from the ghost’s lamentable point of view.

03 When the Wind Blows
An early episode of The Dead Files was the impetus for this study in the denial of molestation – this just an opinion. In spite of the subject matter this is a rather upbeat rocker (-SPOILER ALERT-) ending on a positive note.

04 Haunted Radio
Intentionally clichéd rock with a dash of lush orchestral strings and haunting guitar solo, the concept was derived from demon automobile movies with the car radio as the metaphorical culprit blaring out the redundant high profit-margin playlist for this quarter’s Top 9 listening enjoyment.

05 When Shadows Arrive
“The Haunter of the Dark,” by H.P. Lovecraft, was the lyrical seed for the already existing music. Curiosity eventually kills this character in this slow hard rocker featuring a looming wah-wah guitar. Lightning is lethal; especially when the perfect storm is hunting for you.

06 Bump in the Night
There is this wonderful ghost story by a Rosemary Timperley, called “Christmas Meeting.” Published in 1952, it’s an incredibly short tale of early inadvertent synchronous time travel between two entities.
How can one resist, but to reinvent the tale into musical verse? The organ and sidestick really make it.

07 This House is Mine to Haunt
This ghost inhales sage and plays for keeps: you would think the sounds of a relentless bassoon coming from the attic or ejected exorcists or well-done mediums would do the trick, but some homeowners just can’t take a hint.

08 Hide and Seek
For some ghosts, being one is the name of the game; a game of chance; and they’re the dealer. What you hear is mock dance reggae leading into a 60s psychedelic rock chorus. This Casper finds it quite entertaining to mess with the minds of paranormal investigators; phosphorescent underwear and all.

09 Cage of Fear
Drums, marimba, organ and bass accompany a vocal running an algorithmic robotic animation soundtrack delving into the side-effects of over-exposure to electromagnetic waves. Or is it a metaphor for control by fear-mongering? Only our victim and an ever-vigilant Gene Hackman know for sure.

10 Shadow Over Town
Another song loosely-based on another Lovecraft work titled, “The Shadow Over Innsmouth.” This lengthy tale of a covert alien invasion had to be first condensed into an over-the-Cliff-Notes version then assembled into verses of bulleted points that definitely serve as a metaphor for fleeing from the fear mongering. The harp, harpsichord and piano, blend as one giant umbrella of sound pierced by an eerie organ prodded by a dogged rhythm section.

11 Cabin in the Hills
Escaping the storm our protagonist ventures into what appears to be an uninhabited cabin; but this cabin, unfortunately, was built by Lovecraft in the tale, “The Picture in the House.” For ten verses and occasional choruses a Deliverance banjo drives the song from beginning to end, picking up drums, an acoustic bass, two acoustic guitars and an ominous tuba along the way, coming to rest at a pounding downbeat coda.

12 Best Left Alone
In this influenced Lovecraftian horror song, some stones are best left unturned; as two friends shall discover. The chilling surf music glissandos coming from the unison strings and guitars, with the threating timpani drums in the adventurous interlude break leaves one breathless. Like reading the previous sentence.

13 Give Me a Sign
The first words out of the mouths of new-born ghost hunters. This hunter is on the verge of giving up … until … Bottom heavy with a medium grove it’s a good number for doing the Zombie Crawl; until the break when the cowbell wakes the dead and marches them off to a cage of fear.

14 When Science Ends
Classical-sounding music with a chorus but no verses, until re-reading Lovecraft’s the, “Whisperer in Darkness.” Another number loosely based on elements, like a face and hands found piled in a heap. A shroud of harp and strings hug the hard rhythm section.

15 Yuggoth
Yuggoth is a fictional planet in the Cthulhu Mythos universe of H. P. Lovecraft. It is thought to be located at the outskirts of our solar system. It may actually be Pluto. Behind the cosmic disco beat the guitar transmits signals reminiscent of when Syd Barrett was in Pink Floyd.
