Chapter Twenty-One: AUDIO MONSTRUM – Songs of Ghosts, Vampires, and Zombies

Happy Halloween! Arcane Machine celebrates the only time of the year that goth goes mainstream with a collection of songs about monsters, creeps, and supernatural phenomena. From undead surf rock by The Cramps to discomforting industrial rock by 16Volt, we’ve got a lot of spooktacular music to explore!
