Yay, the best over-commercialized piece of crap holiday we celebrate is here! I love this time of year actually. Anyway, what's gonna be on youse guise playlists in honor of the season. Me, I'm definitely going to have Fantomas, Devill Doll, Univers Zero, and early Anekdoten in heavy rotation.

Halloween is only just starting to get celebrated in my country, but I gather I ´ve seen enough movies about the thing - to understand the basics. Trick or treat and scare the living daylights out of everybody (mostly kids) dressed as Vlad the Impaler   - and probably party right?

The music I associate with Halloween is Jacula, Morte Macabre and Type O Negative.

maybe some Opeth or death metal or some Tom Waits like music is mostly the best Halloween music

Death metal or baroque/vaudeville rock ala Tom Waits, Procol Harum, and those kind of bands with strong dark and almoust gothic themes, Home by Procol Harum and Broken Barriceds are the best Halloween albums made...

No, but recently (during the last 10 years or so) there´s been giant parties associated with it - and children celebrating (probably because it gives them a reason to dress up) in various schools, kindergardens and so forth. No holiday though.. 

We have something called Fastelavn in Denmark that resembles Halloween a bit. We just use wooden bats and beat the crap out of kittens who are locked inside a suspended barrel whilst dressed up as Zorro. - Just kidding, but in the old days this was how it was done. Nowadays we just stuff the thing full of candy, and merely paint a black cat on the barrel.

It would be interesting to make a mix CD-R of different prog songs that would be suitable as Halloween music. It could have songs like Can's "Augmn" and Tangerine Dream's "Nebulous Dawn" as well as Univers Zero's "La Faulx" and others. This isn't prog but this song kicks ass...

Ok, it might not be prog, but Helloween's 'Keeper Of The Seven Keys pt.1' album pretty much kick-started the European power metal movement. And in turn they, and other power metal bands have had a big influence on prog metal, fwiw.
 
So I'll be listening to Helloween -'Halloween' Smile

I know that sadly I will hear that awful Monster Mash song on the radio way too many times. And I don't even listen to the radio...

Do you know UK Decay's offshoot, Furyo ? Tribal gothic rock with a folksy side.

I'll probably be listening to a lot of gnarly contemporary classical, AFI's All Hallow's EP, some Kayo Dot, and maybe even some Danzig. That's only for Halloween though. For the majority of autumn I listen to really depressing folk music because the beautiful leaves and brisk weather somehow make me more melancholic.
