CD Reviews
Blackthorn Asylum
Review by Gary Hill
Nox Arcana’s particular musical niche could be termed “scary music.” It’s more classy than that, though.

Carnival of Lost Souls
Review by Gary Hill
You might remember Nox Arcana from the review I did last year of their Necronomicon album. Actually a lot of that information - with more detail and some question and answer with Joseph Vargo is included in my forthcoming book due out August 20th.

Review by Gary Hill
To a large degree you know what you will get with a Nox Arcana album.

Necronomicon
Review by Gary Hill
This disc is certainly different from any other progressive rock CD. Indeed the band might not even consider it to be such, and I'm not completely sure it is, but it really feels like prog in many ways.

Season of the Witch
Review by Gary Hill
Nox Arcana always delivers. The brain-child of Joseph Vargo, this outfit produces a gothic, electronic sound that is creepy enough for Halloween events.

Shadow of the Raven
Review by Gary Hill
I first became aware of Nox Arcana when researching my book on music based on the works of H. P. Lovecraft. The duo had done a full album of Lovecraft inspired compositions.

The Dark Tower
Review by Gary Hill
The latest musical adventure from Nox Arcana is The Dark Tower. It’s got all the dread and doom one expects from Nox Arcana, delivered with a sense of beauty that one might not anticipate.

Theater of Illusion
Review by Gary Hill
Nox Arcana always produces quality albums. The music is generally classified as goth, but I’d consider it progressive rock, although, arguably the “rock” part of the equation isn’t prevalent.

Winter’s Eve
Review by Gary Hill
Nox Arcana typically produces music that is dark and Gothic and a little spooky.

I have known Gary Hill for a while now and the one thing that I can say with complete certainty about him is that he takes his music seriously.

Various Artists - The Strange Sound of Cthulhu: Music Inspired by the Writings of H.P. Lovecraft written by Gary Hill
Review by Lisa Palmeno
A bit of an editorial comment needs to be made here. Since the person you see as "ed." - that's "editor" not "Ed" - is the author of this book, this is a bit awkward in a way. I had considered not covering this book at MSJ, but that seems unfair as we do provide promotion in the form of reviews for other authors.
