I'm going back over a few favourite gothic reads: Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, to name but two. With a newly purchased 30GB iPod 5G attached to my hip, and my favourite earphones always in my ears, enhancing my commute is hot on my to-do list.
Nox Arcana have come, oh so dearly, to the rescue. Nox' music features lines from classic novels, and an over-the-top cheesiness that, when synced with a favourite gothic novel, make for a lovely page-turning alliance.
iTunes reviews of Nox Arcana's albums are pretty good. My music budget has been curtailed by my better half. Thus far, Transylvania, the gaudily eery companion is my singular entry into the Nox/gothic novel world. So far, so dig.
