Bones, Bones, Catacombs

In preparation for the harvest holidays season (Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead, All Saint's Day) I've decided to share A peek of what's to come when October hits. Starting on the 5th I'll be gathering together all of the fascinating things I've found while doing research for my more morbid projects. I'll be posting every Monday with some of my favorite music, facts, articles, and videos relating to that weeks topic.
