Published Oct 28, 2013Tera Melos guitarist Nick Reinhart is following up his band's awesome X'ed Out LP with a seasonally appropriate ambient album called Scary Sounds.
Sure enough, the Halloween-themed LP features creepy cuts that blend distortion and spookhouse sounds ("Descent"), offer ominous melodies ("Looking Through Your Window"), or figure big with theremin-styled freakouts ("Graveyard") or faux chainsaw buzzing ("Keep it Dark"). For the record, the album's many sonic touches were all crafted using Reinhart's guitar. If you haven't yet found the perfect soundtrack to score your haunted house set up, Scary Sounds just may do the trick.
"I've wanted to do a Halloween-themed, guitar-based ambient record for a long time now," Reinhart said in a statement. "It was important to make this recording a conscious and focused effort. In other words, it's not just me hitting record and then farting around on my pedals. There was a lot of thought put into every sound created."
