CALLING ALL FIENDS, a collection of frightening, damaging and disturbing music conjured up for Halloween, is now available at
Halloween is meant to be scary, right? Year after year we dust off the old silly novelty records. While they are fun, they not at all frightening. Oddio Overplay put the challenge to musical artists the world over to create Halloween music that is “frightening, damaging and disturbing.” No “Monster Mash,” instead creepy soundtracks to a fiendish Halloween. They succeeded with CALLING ALL FIENDS, a two hour collection of their original pieces.

A review from the Vital Weekly newsletter:
WE’RE NOT IN IT FOR THE MONEY
(MP3 by Rallehond Records/WM Recordings)
It’s always good to hear something new from my own soil, and this time it’s even two labels: WM Recordings from Heerlen and Rallehond Records from Dordrecht/Breda, all three cities wide apart in The Netherlands, actually. They see it as their as their task to present ‘musicians in a professional way’. These musicians play a variety of music: none of these labels operate in one specific style. In most of these fourteen pieces, none by anyone I ever heard of, can be classified as ‘influenced by popmusic’, but some drift far apart. Sometimes pretty straight forward rock/dance influenced as with Happy Elf or DIT, acoustic guitars and vocals by Kinley Caliper and CobsOn, electro pop by Flexor, Anton Oosterwijk, and Nambavan. The weirder pieces are by the ambient guitars by Century Of Aeroplanes (who sound like Radiohead on a lot of drugs) or the downright ambient music of Lee Rosevere and Sid Peacock and the classical piano composition by Romme Bliger or TROY’s chamber music piece , to end with the weirdest of all Stefan van den Hout whistling in his living room. Like said, none of these names may mean anything, but all tracks are free to download, so perhaps there is something in there for everyone.
And while we’re here: check out our latest release, a full length album by Kinetic Jane. Polish beats with a twist.
