awesome site! blogged about your site today on http://spookysoiree.blogspot.com -keep up the good work!

Plague said...

Are you going to post anything for 2012?

Brandon said...

I might try to find a way to reupload a lot of my dead links. But I'm scared if I use mediafire it would shut down my blog. Just need to use weird file names so that it doesn't get flagged down. I will eventually look for new albums at Halloween stores but with so many of them out there its a good chance I might end up buying the same stuff.

X. T. Yanman said...

If you find new scary sounds , I have some to send in too.





Brandon said...

If you have anything new just send it this way, I have slowly been uploading stuff to my mediafire but been kind of scared to post it all at once and since I left most of my Halloween Soundtracks at home I have to look for them on my iPod. So might take a while probably might not be able to post new ones I did get some but I think someone else already posted them.

Ecto said...

I've got this one to share with you. It's called "Sounds of Horror". I got it at a dollar store I think. I also included a CD cover I made for this CD. I uploaded it on 4shared... hope the link works.

Ecto said...

I forgot to mention that the album I gave the link to in my comment above is not the same "Sounds of Horror" as the one already available on this blog.

Enjoy!

Sorry it's taking so long, am just trying to gather albums from older posts and uploading them to a different site. 4shared.

After that I will post the new albums, some are already uploaded just need to post the information.

Thankyou For the Reups and newups Brandon !

Unknown said...

So, I guess I'll add my comments to the chorus here. Firstly, thanks for doing this blog, from a fellow sound effects geek and a Halloween sound effects geek at that. However, I'm surprised you don't have the "Night of Terror" CD put out by Gateway back in about 1995 or so. This is one that everybody, especially a company called Columbia River Entertainment Group, borrows from all the time. I think most of the sounds are derived from one of the BBC Death and Horror albums mixed with a few other sources, but it's a pretty good continuous mix with a fairly decent sense of continuity. One thing that bugs me about many Halloween SFX mixes is they tend to take the approach of just throwing a bunch of sounds at you with no context. I'm going to try to find some of the more unique CDs I have and rip them for you, and I'm thinking I'll concentrate on those that are a single track. I'll try to avoid duplicating any mixes already up here, even if they fall under different titles.

Brandon said...

Yeah I don't believe I have that album but I am sure a lot of the ones I have, used it. I can't say how many times I have come across an album and it's the same damn album which is why if I am at the record store and they let me listen to it before buying I would definitely listen to it because chances are it might be one I already have.

Hell I could happen to have the CD you are referring to but it might be under a different name or cover cause most of the time people just take it and slap their own name on it. I would very much be grateful if you can share what stuff you have. I am surprised people haven't been sharing stuff that they had through the years.

I have a few broken links from people but I have not seen anyone sharing those albums back to me so I can reup them on 4shared.

Josh Quillin said...

Hey! I was looking for a way to potentially submit content but can't find a contact or place to e-mail... Is there a way to submit potential sound packs etc?

Plague said...

Lookin' forward to stuff for 2014!

Unknown said...

OK, at long last, here's the Night of Terror CD. Just the MP3, no artwork because I don't have it, but I ripped the MP3 at 320 KBPS just for fun, and this is a Sendspace link. Feel free to upload it to 4Shared and share it from there. https://www.sendspace.com/file/4ddwz2

Unknown said...

OK, that was screwy. I just posted and it said Unknown for my name, so it's Chris S that just sent you that file and I might have a few more oldie-moldie favorites.

Brandon said...

Thanks for sharing Chris S, I am on a slow Internet at the moment will download your file and upload it to my 4shared account and share it in October.

Mr. Biggs said...

Since I've used a ton of your audio, I figure I should let you know.

I have a tiny micro-power FM that I use to broadcast my music library around the house and yard. Each October, I switch to an all Halloween format. Mostly vintage spooky and goofy tracks... with classic horror movie sound clips sprinkled in for spice.

This year I've started streaming it so everyone can tune in. It's highly curated and produced... much more fun to listen to than some sterile Spotify or Rdio playlist.

A streaming Halloween horrorsoundtrack Radio- http://www.caveevil.com/psychos/#
All original compositions, tunes into other Halloween channels as well!

Armando said...

Thanks so much for all of your amazing and incredible work. I love this blog and always will be. ¡I need to know what your favorite Soundtrack! ¡PLEASE! ¡Tell ME! Amazing job, i insist. Thanks again.

Plague said...

looking forward to the new stuff for 2015!

Dave said...

I wish I could figure where to share that my stuff doesn't keep getting pulled down. I have my own Halloween blog, but I got tired of trying to keep my links active. Thanks for your work.

Dave W.

Brandon said...

Sorry to hear that Dave. Did you try Mediafire? I know they have this stupid thing where if the audio is recognizable by sites that have digital media like Amazon that it blocks the file from being downloaded. I am currently using MEGA to share but at the same time if MEGA ends up doing a Megaupload then I fear for my uploads being deleted. That's why I have backed up all that I've shared including the lossless albums that I am currently reimporting into my computer on an external hard drive. It's like 30GB big including the stuff that I've found on the Internet and ones that people share on here.

siys said...

I have a share I'd like to send you to add to the site. Email me at siys at yahoo dot com.

Brian Farmer said...

Very excited to see you back this year!! Keep up the awesome work!

Erik said...

Thanks for years of sharing!

Cynthia said...

Just curious what the double asterisk next to your post titles mean. Awesome work... wish I had stumbled on this a few years ago. Been using the same track for years. Needed something new.

Brandon said...

Cynthia, the asterisk was to help me determine which albums I had reup to fix dead links. I might end up doing that this year too but I am sure a lot of my readers will probably just download the new stuff instead of the old stuff.

Unknown said...

Just wanted to thnak you for keeping this site up.
It's been my go-to every October.

siys said...

Hello Brandon! Welcome To Halloween Season 2016. Love Love Love This Blog. Number One Halloween Blog On The Internet. Happy Halloween from Stevo In Yr Stereo of Nightmare City Halloween!!!

Aymerick417 said...

Thank you very much for your contributions ! love that blog ;)

Plague said...

Is the well truly running dry on scary soundscapes?!
I sure hope not.

siys said...

Brandon, Great to have you back for Halloween season 2017!!! Thank you for your hard work. Have a Great Halloween, Stevo In Yr Stereo of Nightmare City Halloween

Unknown said...

I have been looking for one album for years and you helped me find it. My dad used to make the scariest haunted houses at the elementary school he worked at. And I would help him set them up. It was amazing. And this music always had a nostalgic place in my heart. It was the chamber of horrors 1990 and 1998. I love it so much now I’m going to have the best Halloween ever this year!

siys said...

Hi Brandon. Happy Halloween Season 2018!!! Personally, I don't mind repeated audio, when the cover art is new. Yes, I am a crazy collector and I love every version! Cheers from Stevo In Yr Stereo of Nightmare City Halloween!

Brandon said...

Hey Stevo, I can understand you like the repeats but I feel like this Halloween might be a very empty one especially when I can't find new material to post this year. I am not really a fan of the older stuff cause they're on media like vinyl and cassette that I don't possess a player for to record into digital format.

You don't typically find older Halloween albums in a Goodwill because they usually just stock CDs and some vinyl. I've yet to actually find a vinyl of a scary sounds album in good condition. Hell even the local record store doesn't have a good selection of CDs. I don't like shopping eBay either cause of shady sellers ripping people off.

Ricky Jim said...

Please dont ever close this site. I might even donate. It's one of the best halloween sites ever! and one of my go to. I'll always come here first to get my halloween sound fixs for months till thanksgiving.

When given the chance I'm going to backup every last album.

Thank you very much for creating this and dont ever think of letting it die!

Oli said...

WOW, great Site.
Respect.
One Question: Whats your favorite Halloween CD???
Many Thanks and greetings from Germany;-)

Brandon said...

Oli, thank you. My favorite Halloween CD is probably Scary Sounds of Halloween from K-Tel or A Night In A Haunted House / A Night In A Graveyard.

Raven176 said...

Thanks, Brandon for the years of sounds!

and to PawPatrolFan92 for sharing things this year.
