After attending a concert with the Christmas-themed Trans-Siberian Orchestra, former Twisted Sister vocalist Dee Snider was therefore impressed he decided the rock-orchestra format would have to be put on his favorite holiday, Halloween. Snider mixed a six-piece choir, a six-piece string section, and a five-piece rock-band and called it Truck Helsing’s Curse after a vampire hunter in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Barely a one-off task, Snider envisions Truck Helsing’s Curse touring every Oct using the orchestra in outfit and on-stage particular effects. Koch Information released their debut, Oculus Infernum, in 2003 as well as the Six Flags theme recreation area in Jackson, NJ, began using the record as the soundtrack with their nightly Fright Fest in Oct from the same season. During the album’s discharge, Snider is at talks using the General Studios parks as well as the various other Six Flags for equivalent licensing deals.
