My entry for the Oct. Nac 12: Children Of The Chron.
A long time ago a family of 5 brothers,the Malum brothers, lost both their parents due to a tragic illness.
Their only uncle had to take care of the 5 brothers for the next year. He never loved them and had them locked inside a dark corner of the house all day where he would go only to give them food and to beat them up if he felt like doing it.
As he mistreated the young children they started becoming as insane as their uncle was and eventually murderous intentions began to surface in the youglings twisted heads
One day after a few years the 5 brothers still below the age of 12 managed to escape their dark cage and found their uncle sleeping. Three of them held their uncle down while the older brother grabbed a knife, the fifth brother found a music box and started playing its weird music as the uncle watched in horror.
They slit his throat and proceded stabing him wherever they could as he tried to escape. In his last breath he was capable of reaching the fire place and burned the house killing all the 5.
The tale says when someone passed by the remains of the house after midnight they hear the same melody they played to their uncle and the screams of all the people that have been a victim of the Malum Ghosts, like the mermaids song they cant help but to feel atracted to it.
The House now is on a deserted road and this song is the story of an unlucky person who was lost in the woods at night and got trapped by the psycho spirits.
00:00- The Melody
00:36- The House
01:24- The Hopeless Struggle For Survival
02:55- The Final Moment

It starts pretty creepy and I love the mix of instruments. This is an awesome track with lots of creepy soundscaping in it. From 1:27, it's reeeaaaallly awesome. Sounds like diablo. I loved that you had 4 very distinct sections in the song. Loved this submission.
