November 2011 – The ‘rap’ group Insane Clown Posse is being sued by the ultimate greats on gothic horror music, Midnight Syndicate, for their illegal use of audio samples in their ‘rap’ music. They used samples on a total of SEVEN tracks without permission from Midnight Syndicate. The samples appeared on several releases such as: Mirror Mirror, and Tales from the Lotus Pod. Later, Insane Clown Posse used samples on Hell’s Pit. The band was notified of the illegal sampling back in 2009, and then continued to use samples on future recordings.
The music of Midnight Syndicate can be described as the BEST horror soundscapes ever recorded. Through many released Midnight Syndicate has perfected that perfect horror-mood setting sound.
We are hoping that Midnight Syndicate prevails in this case.
