Halloween Countdown: Matthew Tait

We've reached the halfway point, we've as many days to go as have passed.  The nights are growing longer as the day surrenders to the seasons change. Today's special guest is Australian Matthew Tait, and his latest release, Dar Meridian.

Peru, 1835, and the Order of Sant’Antonio have just witnessed something that goes against all belief: a ball of light has penetrated their sanctuary. Nobody has seen anything like it before and Brother Chabuca Cristal knows that one of his own flock is responsible for its presence. When Brother Meridian is abducted by the flying object and taken away, all except Brother Cristal breathe a sigh of relief that the ordeal is over...

Two centuries later and half a world away, Adam Lavas has returned home. After gaining momentum in the arena of rock ‘n’ roll in a way nobody else predicted, his band Solid State became a global sensation known throughout every continent. But there is a price – a price that not even commercial or critical success can hope to balm. For in the corridors of the creative heart, dark things have always lurked – taking the forms of depression, addiction, and some things even worse. So when he finds a certain mansion named Meridian hidden within the hills of Adelaide, it seems like the perfect home where he can deal with terminating his celebrity status and perhaps even himself.

Step into Meridian’s halls, and discover a doorway into another world.
