Books & Music:
“Eternal Night” is a compilation book of the classic stories of Spookinite Valley.
Published: September 2nd, 2019.
Synopsis: Insanity. Such an exceedingly over-opinionated word used by the so-called sane. But what truly is this phenomenon we shun without deliberation? Why does this word invoke fright and foreboding? Perhaps your irrational civilization is to blame for the fearful emotions you deem instinctual. And contrary to your unsophisticated preconceived notion, there are many tales within these pages that will, perhaps, persuade you that madness can bestow upon special individuals a wondrous gift. Hearken! For a mortician became enlightened—an innkeeper realized his purpose—a horrid presence on the earth was slain—and the rites of the forsaken were conveyed. Yet this is merely a foretaste of what awaits you. Leave now or embrace the gift I offer you in this realm of nocturnal eternity.
The second album by Morbus Tenebris, “Eternal Night”, is currently being produced and will be released in October of 2019. Visit www.morbustenebris.com for more information.
Album Description: For many centuries, a grave and ghoulish conspiracy has been undertaken—far from the sight of the mentally sane. Sewn with shadow and weaved with wrath, the event known as the Eternal Night is imminent like a black hurricane looming beyond the shore. An ethereal illness swirls through the realm of midnight—beckoning new brethren. Those who are infected follow him to a secret valley and carry forth The Dark Sickness’s malevolent schemes. On October 31st, Pumpkin Daemons will awaken and the mirth of gruesome ghouls will resound throughout the cold, merciless air.
“Shadows On The Wall” is the debut novel written by Benjamin Fouché. The story explores how potent the mind can be, as well as the many fears it conjures.
Published: August 13th, 2018.
Synopsis: Three fears tormented my mind as a child: Nyctophobia—the fear of darkness. Teraphobia—the fear of monsters. And Sanguivoriphobia—the fear of vampires. Usually, as one grows older, such ridiculous terrors gradually subside. Yet mine only persisted. The grave events began during my boyhood. They transpired on the night of which I discovered my remarkable gift. But on that night, my three fears also ravenously and quite literally came forth into this world. As a result, I had to make a choice—and I confess, the choice I made has cost me nearly everything. For fourteen years there was a calm in my life. Alas, it was one o’ clock a.m.—the dead of night—when the late-summer wind silently declared their return to this world. Indeed, they are coming for me—and my time wanes with the dying light of my candlestick’s wavering flame.
“Shadows On The Wall” is the debut album composed, arranged, and produced by Morbus Tenebris, a Gothic/instrumental/dark ambient musical project created by Benjamin Fouché. The album complements the novel of the same title, with each song corresponding with characters, events, or places from the book.
Album Description: An insidious haunted house themed attraction entitled “Gravestone Manor” mysteriously appears at different traveling carnivals and fairs across the country. The ghoulishly illustrated characters on the façade morbidly peer into the souls of all who warily contemplate entering. Perhaps these imaginative fiends are indeed real and are lying in wait beyond the pitch-black doorway. Venture through a foreboding musical journey and attempt to survive the merciless twists and turns ahead as shadows on the wall come to life. Released: September 7th, 2018.
