The Signum Crucis: Unholly Mutation Comic Libretto is a companion to the "Signum Crucis" track of the Dreams in the Witch House Rock Opera. It was re-released as an All-Star version of the original song, featuring vocals by Tony Todd and Courtney Gains. The Comic Libretto is a game-board poster, where you scan the QR code on the comic, download the song, and follow the song’s wicked narrative by following a trail of violet light through each panel in-synch with the song in an inward spiral fashion towards a dark void at the center. Cover Art by Nick the Hat. Comic by Chad Cavanaugh.
NEW ADDITION TO THE WITCH HOUSE SAGA! Fevered Dreams from the Witch House is a new compilation of expansion tracks to Dreams in the Witch House: A Lovecraftian Rock Opera, the 2013 Concept Album adaptation of Lovecraft's original 1933 tale, "The Dreams in the Witch House". The EP (extended play) features some big names in Horror and Rock, including the voices of Tony Todd (Candyman), Barbara Steele (Black Sunday), Courtney Gains (Children of the Corn), and the musical virtuosity of Bruce Kulick (former KISS guitarist), Douglas Blair (W.A.S.P. lead guitarist), Mikkey Dee (Scorpions drummer) and Christian Eigner (Depeche Mode drummer). The EP contains 7 total tracks:
Signum Crucis: Unholy Mutation (an enhanced, reimagined version of Signum Crucis)
The Refuge of Penitence (an epic, 8+ minute cautionary prologue to the Rock Opera)
Argo Navis (Heart of Darkness) featuring Barbara Steele (a new song giving voice to Azathoth at the Throne of Chaos)
Madness is my Destiny (a sweeping orchestral version of the original epilogue)
Signum Kulick (an all-instrumental version of Signum Crucis, showcasing Bruce Kulick's evil lead guitar)
Nothing I Can Do (instrumental)
Madness is my Destiny (instrumental)
The EP comes with Graphic Metal, a new fusion of visual and auditory media. Graphic Metal combines art and music in a manner like never before. A companion poster unfolds into a large format visual libretto for "Signum Crucis: Unholy Mutation" (track one). As the track plays, the listener follows a sinister sequence of narrative horror imagery towards the song's unholy conclusion, unleashing one of Lovecraft's most diabolical figures, the humanoid rat man, Brown Jenkin.
