about

This demo is the first collection of music that made me feel like I was on the right track. The whole thing was a shot in the dark, and it was written in only two weeks. I didn't even know acoustic horror music was a thing at that point. "Cemetery Romance" was originally a Hobgoblin song, but I thought it would fit better as an acoustic tune. The result was this demo EP, which is, in my opinion, one of the best things I've ever written.

Track Name: The Devil Is Pleased (Demo)
I sit in a circle of candles
And wait for the blood on my hands to dry
At three a.m., the witching hour
It's time for a sacrifice

The devil is pleased, he stares though the mirror
And smiles at my offering
The devil is ready, her soul leaves her body
To take her to Hell with me

I place her exalted on top of the altar
This woman that I adore
The still-beating heart that I ripped from her chest
Lies bleeding all over the floor
Track Name: Zombie Witch (Demo)
Tonight begins the endless season of the witch
Self-inflicted are her dreams of darkness
Rest assured, she doesn't rest anymore
Under the fullest moonlight, heed her calling

Up from the depths of her swamp
She rises on this evening
Banshee's cry, serpent tongue
Gnashing teeth, she's screaming
She's a sick, evil bitch
Caught her curse, zombie witch
And I can feel her calling to me

A fetid hand emerges up from the murky waters
The stench of death and rotted flesh hangs in the air
Tonight, she beckons me to her cabin in the trees
To cast her undead necromancy
Track Name: Dr. Robb's Experiment (Demo)
My masterpiece is lying there on the slab
In the middle of my scientific lab
With my two hands, I built him stitch by stitch
Lightning strikes, throw the switch

Electrodes are racing, the room starts to shake
His eyes, they burst open, the monster awakes
He breaks the restraints, even to my surprise
Can't help but to scream to the world, "It's alive!"

It's alive

A monolith of many dead bodies combined
Fueled by electrons and a criminal mind
He walks through the gates and stumbles outside
They told me I'm insane, but they'll see it's alive
Track Name: Monday Morning Of The Living Dead (Demo)
I wake up bright and early to the sound of my alarm
From a cadaverous sleep
My guts are hanging out, and I've got maggots in my arms
And I'm dying for somebody to eat
I stand next to my window, and I take a look outside
And see I'm not the only one who's changed
There are zombies everywhere and people running for their lives
And flesh, and blood, and delicious brains

It's Monday morning of the living dead
I look and feel atrocious, and I'm half-asleep
It's Monday morning, I don't wanna leave my bed
Can I pay someone to do this shit for me?

Since I'm dead, I guess I can do whatever I please
I think I'll eat my boss to start the day
This'll be you too: homicidal, dead, and free
Can't beat 'em, so just eat 'em anyway
Track Name: Cemetery Romance (Demo)
It's getting late, drawn here by your quiet whispering
Up and over the cemetery gates
The air is motionless, the caretaker's sleeping soundly
And the starlight is just enough

Tonight is all we ever wanted
Leaning on a mausoleum dreaming
They will find you and me howling under twisted trees
Dancing 'cause the dead can't hear a thing we say

The moon is luminous and overhead
Laughing and holding hands through the fields of stones
The ravens mourn the passing of the daylight from the shadows
And your eyes are all I see of you
