ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
OCTOBER, 1943 Deep in an Austrian forest, a Nazi research scientist has developed a chemical agent capable of bringing the dead back to life. The Third Reich, desperate for such a weapon, pour money and resources into the project called, \"Darklight.\" The professor leading the research, fails to inform the Nazi hierarchy that the formula needs work; test subjects are unruly, violent, and uncontrollable. Nearly every one of them must eventually be \"re-killed.\" Meanwhile, a german officer, fearing that such experiments could endanger not only The Fatherland, but the rest of the world, makes contact with the Allies in an attempt to put an end to the project. With barely any preperation or gathered intelligence, the Allies are forced to hastily dispatch a special, hand-selected commando team in a daring attempt to infiltrate and destroy the laboratory and information gathered by the scientists before the bio-weapon can be introduced into battle. After a near disastrous night time parachute jump, the commandos reassemble and take out the perimeter guards smoothly, and with little trouble. Upon seeing that the research is being done in a huge, castle-like structure, and with guards seemingly posted everywhere, the soldiers realize that they are most certainly involved in a suicide mission. Vowing that they must succeed, no matter what the cost, and aided by the light of a full moon, they make their way into the complex. Once inside, and relying on every stealth and hand to hand skill they\'ve ever learned, they head to the basement of the castle where the laboratory and holding pens for the test subjects are located. A guard, alerted to their presence, sounds an alarm, and a devestating firefight ensues, leaving heavy casulties on both sides. Hopelessly outnumbered, the commandos fall in battle and are taken to the lab. Since his last series of experiments, the professor has advanced a new theory concerning the application of the reanimation chemical; using it on dead tissue causes the subject to reagain consciousness, and go mad with blood-lust, while similar results occur when tested on live, healthy individuals. The chemical kills the specimen, then reanimates it in a matter of moments. With a batch of new subjects on the brink of death, he now has a chance to introduce the chemical just as the spark of life extinguishes. The new procedure works perfectly. The soldiers are now caught somewhere in a zone between life and death, a gray area where the blood-lust remains, but brain function and reasoning power still exist. One of the fallen men, Davidson, rips the unsuspecting scientist\'s throat out when the doctor foolishly leans too close to the reanimated warrior. Upon releasing the remaining members of his squad, particularly a demolitions expert named Wolf, and an enigmatic sharp-shooter called Skel, the undead soldiers ransack the lab, burning and destroying the Nazi doctor\'s records in the process. After the Darklight mission, the half-life heroes wander aimlessly for years before eventually deciding to search out other \"inhumans\" like themselves. Their music is a call to others like themselves, others who are different, who are lost; a message that says, \"you are not alone.\"

I went to this bands website and I was blown away by just the sample songs they had up....it made me want to check out the whole shooting match! I really liked the concept of what they are doing, but more than that, I liked all the songs. There were a couple that were a bit...different...but, man, most everything on there was just really well done! This is the perfect time of year for this too, what with all the costume parties and everything. Its great music to listen to to get yourself in the mood to hit the haunted houses! I would recommend this cd to ANYONE who has a love for all the old scary movies you grew up watching..but more than that...I would recommend it to anyone who loves great music, plain and simple. Even though this is kind of a Halloween themed cd, I believe I will be listening to it regardless of what time of year it is!
