Halloween season is upon us, and we here at The Arcade are thrilled to bring you our annual Halloween Music Special! Unlike pretty much every other outlet at this time of year, we get our hands dirty and dig deep to unearth some of the finest and most enjoyable Halloween music you won’t hear anywhere else. We’ll start this year’s proceedings with a group of songs focused on what we’re calling “ancient evil”. No, it’s not recordings of pagan ceremonies, but it is all British music about the occult/Satan from the 1960’s. From there comes the obligatory metal group, which, this year, has a decidedly Canadian bent to it. Once the metal is out of the way, we focus on a genre which has really been underrepresented in previous Halloween Music Specials, hip-hop. There’s a rich world of horror-themed hip-hop out there, and we’re presenting just the tip of the iceberg this year. This year’s show ends off focusing on the haunting sounds of Peter Steele. The former frontman of Type O Negative had one of the deepest and most distinct voices in rock, and we found a few tracks that perfectly illustrate how perfect Peter Steele’s voice was for Halloween.
Halloween season is upon us once again, which means that we here at The Arcade are back with our annual Halloween Music Special. When it comes to this time of year, you always hear Thriller, Monster Mash, and the Ghostbusters theme being played everywhere you go. Sure, they’re appropriate for the season and all, but sometimes, people are just lazy and fall back to those without a second thought. Thankfully, we here at The Arcade are anything but lazy and have once again compiled a setlist of music you won’t hear anywhere else this Halloween.
