Van Helsing's Curse - Oculus Infernum(Review)[Musical Monday]


This is a concept album developed with the involvement of Dee Snyder, who provides the narration, with metal and orchestral sound that is about an entity that slaughters an entire town and a little boy who teams up with Van Helsing to get his revenge.


I only become known of this album some time ago as it came up as a suggestion during my discovery of Midnight Syndicate. During the course of the album, you will hear reworkings of The Exorcist theme, The Omen theme, The Hall of the Mountain King, and a few other surprises. There are a total of 10 awesome tracks with two bonus tracks, a cover of Cry Little Sister from The Lost Boys and their reworking of the Halloween theme.


Essentially this is like Transiberian Orchestra, albeit more spooky and evil sounding. The album definitely rocks though and is worth listening to. It is hard to find print versions, but is streaming on Spotify and Amazon Music if you want to check it out, which I highly recommend doing so.


Till next time, stay safe and stay scared!! -Tha Thrilla-
