Eternal Night of the Dead(ansgaros)
Another one I did for OMC. The task this time was to make up a TV show, and to compose the theme for that show.
Night comes as usual
When the day comes to an end
But this night is different, this night is forever
An appropriate time for evil to get together and fight
What a horrible night to have no morning
Undead they rise
The monster dance
An eerie silence creeps across the land
‘Til the screams of fright fill this eternal night
What a horrible curse to have no morning
Show Title: Perpetual Night
Genre: UK Survival horror/comedy/drama series (13 episodes per season)
The premise is that for a reason to be disclosed later in the show (watch it to find out!) there are no more mornings, only “Perpetual Night” remains. Of course, perpetual night would be boring without some action… So there’s evil afoot! For each season the cast has a different evil to fight off. This song is the theme for the first season, where this evil is the undead.
It just turned out this way. There are about five different sections in this one. The fourth section, starting at around 2:13, is what I call “the chase”. The atmosphere is dark (like in most of my music) throughout the song. I entered this song to Original Music Competition #6 running at Good-Evil.net. There was no particular theme this time, everyone could do whatever they wanted. The voting was tight and I got fourth place, tied with two others.
