---- So it has been a long long time since I've posted anything on Newgrounds. This is because I've been super busy throughout most of the summer, and the little music I had the time to write, I had to use for other projects. I also went through a period of writer's block that left me unable to write anything decent for quite a while, but that's over now.

This track is written entirely for the Halloween Spooktacular competition here on Newgrounds. I tried to make it convey what Halloween means to me as a holiday, so chiefly the fun, yet eerie, kind of creepy that goes around the streets at this time. The song is very much open to interpretation, so different people could understand it differently, but to me it represents memories experienced, memories forgotten and memories you do not want to live again. Dramatic, I know.

A lot of work went into this piece, around thirty to thirty-five hours worth of music over two weeks. I am quite happy with the result, and I feel as if its one of my better tracks to date.

Nonetheless, I won't write too much here, so you can listen to the track in peace. A review is very much appreciated, as I can only improve with your feedback. Thank you, and enjoy the piece!

Very awesome! It started a bit to silent, I couldn't hear it.

Echo responds:

Thanks! I'll see what I can do about the volume ;)
