A song for a little project I'm working on, called Cripplegate. Based on a short story of mine of the same name. It tells the story of a man going back to his small New England town of Cripplegate to bury his parents and meet a childhood friend. Not long after he arrives he meets an enigmatic man by the name of Harley Patton (it's an anagram, actually). Not long after that, things take a dark turn, as unspeakable evils reveal themselves.

This is supposed to be a very short introduction. There is also an extended version in the works, called Cripplegate Main Theme. Other almost complete songs include Awaken The Darkness, The Dead Walk, Shadows in The Myst, and Rosetta's Inn. The music is supposed to be bizarre, psychedelic and rather progressive. Some of the other songs even include slight grindcore elements (all instrumental, of course).

It is done with various Virtual Instruments, because I STILL have trouble recording my guitars. I guess I'll have to give up using software, and use mics instead.
This is a very dear project to me, I've spent a lot of emotion into composing the songs.
Even if you don't like it, please tell me what you think. I'd really appreciate it :)

Take care and hope you guys like it !

Bizarre, I get that.

You really do feel like your in a car or on a bus going somewhere, the light glaring off of the windows and in the distance you see.....Cripplegate. A perfect name given to maybe not so perfect of town. I liked this. The church-bell is a dead ringer for sanctuary....or is it for whom the bell toles. Good job.

The main character actually arrives on a bus ! Good guess :p The story actually takes place in the beginning of the 20th century, it's very Lovecraft inspired. I'll try submitting raw versions of my songs to see what people think, and hopefully soon I can record it with a much better quality.

Thank you very much for the review, friend ! Cheers, and please do check out my other stuff :)
