Edward Douglas and Gavin Goska, the musical duo known as "Midnight Syndicate" released their first music video earlier this spring. Given how dark and eerie their music is, I was happily surprised to see they have a sense of playful humor that leavens the spooky and almost solemn music.
Here's their description of the video, from Youtube:
"Halloween music and Gothic Horror soundtrack composers Midnight Syndicate in their first official music video. Showcasing "Dark Legacy" from their CD, The Dead Matter: Cemetery Gates, the video also features clips from the upcoming dark fantasy film The Dead Matter (July 30, 2010). Directed by David H. Greathouse and produced with the help of Robert Kurtzman's Creature Crew and Screamline Studios, the video also features cameos from fellow Cleveland dark music legends Jeff Hatrix and Schmotz from the heavy metal act, Mushroomhead.

Of course, I've bought all the Midnight Syndicate CDs-- in the Halloween season they're usually the only good music CDs for sale, all the rest being the same releases of covers of "Thriller" and other creepy standards. So of course I'm stoked that there is a Midnight Syndicate MOVIE coming!
