Midnight Syndicate is teaming up with Wizards of the Coast, Inc. to create the first official soundtrack CD to the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game. Scheduled for release in August 2003, this CD takes listeners on a journey into the world of dragons, ancient underground temples, mystical forests, dark knights, and sorcery featuring the blend of orchestral instrumental music and sound effects for which the band has become known. "We wanted to release something special for our supporters in the roleplaying game industry," said Edward Douglas of Midnight Syndicate. "For Dungeons & Dragons fans, this disc will be a great way to enhance the roleplaying experience. We're working very closely with the designers at Wizards of the Coast to make the disc a dynamic, yet simple, way of taking their adventuring sessions to the next level."
Over the past six years, Midnight Syndicate has produced several orchestral, instrumental, gothic/horror-themed CDs that serve as the perfect accompaniment to roleplaying game sessions. Their work has been featured on Monday Night Football, and the Today Show as well as in many of the USA's major theme parks during the Halloween season.
"I've been a fan of Midnight Syndicate for a couple of years and am quite excited at their desire to do this CD," said Anthony Valterra, RPG category manager at Wizards of the Coast. "They have succeeded at capturing the magic of D&D through music."
