Alright you creeps, you ghouls, you things that go bump in the night, this is your season, this is your time. Embrace the inner werewolf. Call upon the light of the full moon. Talk a walk through cemetary gates with the voodoo doll lover of your choice and take a bite out of her.

The greatest of rock instrumentals are evocative. With no lyrics to further the narrative, the musicians have to paint an image with their instruments. In the hands of a visionary, those instruments are capable of extraordinary impressionistic imagery. They can teleport you to the next galaxy, a terrible stretch of Midwestern highway or a beach packed with tanned skin and rippling blue barrels. Let's jam to some impressionistic painters disguised as rock musicians.
