Nothing gives you the inspiration for that finishing touch on your Halloween costume like the right music. For many years our music of choice has been Soma FM’s “Doomed” station, which has a special mix of dark, industrial, goth and metal that never fails to send a shiver down our spine. If you don’t believe us, just try walking anywhere with this in your headphones. That empty cabin never looked so scary!
There are plenty of other Halloween mixes out there, and we like the Gorilla and Bear Halloween Mix, an annual tradition of indie-tinged tunes.
You can find their previous mixes on Soundcloud as well. And you can download the mixes for permanent listening.
FInally, it wouldn’t be Halloween for Boomers without Chilling Thrilling Sounds of a Haunted House. We recommend The Very Long Fuse played at top volume.
