Jay Tholen released an album in 2008 called Epidemic which featured an homage to classic horror movie soundtracks by combining eerie atmosphere and sudden chiptune interactions.

But feeling the experience was a bit incomplete, Tholen decided to rework the album by adding additional live instrumentation and expanding the chiptune sections to bring out what he envisioned four years ago. The result is a affectionately campy album with a unique yet appropriate twist.

If you're looking for a way to combine your love for videogames and horror this Halloween without suffering through Friday the 13th on the NES, check out Epidemic Deluxe on Bandcamp.
