NEW CD: Gothic Christmas

October 18, 2008 06:54

I just returned from a long trip to Transylvania <wink!> where I helped a f(r)iend make a recording: Count Bachula (666-?), the not so great great great...great uncle of the famous composer J.S.Bach—on the Transylvania side. Count Bachula and his music have recently been unearthed. The Count wanted to record some of his Vampire Holiday Favorites such as:

  • "We Wish You a Scary Christmas"
  • "Silent Fright",
  • "Rudolf, the Red-nosed Werewolf"
  • "The Thirteen Nights of Christmas".

Count Bachula recorded these on the mighty pipe organ at Castle Bachula, accompanied by the Transylvania Vampire Choir (directed by Dr. Van Helsing), Quasimodo on bells, and a dread host of others.

All the songs sound vaguely familiar to me, but the Count swears his songs are millenia old.

By the way, the suggestion that Count Bachula and I must be related because we look so similar is, of course, completely ridiculous!

More information, including pictures of Castle Bachula, "Vampires in the News", sound samples of all the tracks on his CD and more can be found at the Count's website:

Information about Count Bachula's new CD, Gothic Christmas, can be found here, or click the CD cover at left—if you dare!.

Warmly (while I'm still warm!),
