ECHOPRAXIA’s second EP is five instrumental cinematic tracks inspired by composer Danny Elfman’s ‘Halloween’ theme, as well as his score for ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’. Influences also include the jazz innovator Django Reinhardt, the rhythmically aberrant Vildhjarta, the blackened darkness of Dimmu Borgir and J.S. Bach, a cornerstone of western melody.
The resulting combination of these influences is a haunting, abrasive, intricately melodic and dynamically heavy listen, with a cheeky touch of humour.
Pumpkin Palace needs to be the Halloween soundtrack for every metal fan.
