Here's a little about me:

I am a musician, composer, and VST plugin geek. I started writing electronic music in the mid 90's but started as a drummer in the 80's. I came from a rock/metal background. I played drums and sang for many rock bands before dabbling with electronic synth music.  I have always been a fan of Tangerine Dream , John Carpenter, and other electronic composing artists. I released my first electronic music album called Notic Reign 'Dominion of Illumination' in 1998. I then released 2 other albums under the same name before creating Notic Reign Productions (Records) where I would release several other projects. My other electronic project is called DARKMOOD, a horror music project where I have released 4 albums and a new one on the way. 
On August 28, 2018 I have a new project called INFINITE MINDSCAPE 'SPACE'  being released. It's a cinematic, hybrid synth project created to drive emotion and is a polar opposite of my Darkmood project. I also released 3 albums under my initials SDM with a fourth one on the way. It mixes my rock singing style with electronic music.  Other bands I recorded with were Night Train, Widow's Offering, Chaos Theory, Portrait Black, and Shadows Fade.

DARKMOOD is a dark ethereal music soundtrack project. 'The Dead of Fall' is the sophomore release to the 2009 debut 'Halloween Descends'. 'The Dead of Fall' takes your imagination on a ride through a zombie Apocalypse. DARKMOOD has influences ranging from soundtrack masters like John Carpenter, Goblin, early Delerium and even a little Tangerine Dream. DARKMOOD is a journey of Fear, intensity and Gothic melodic beauty.
Darkmood- created by Steve D Montgomery


Evocative and atmospheric, each of the scores on this 13-track album will send chills down the spine of all who listen.


“The Dead of Fall” is exactly what I expected and a bit more from a genuine, aspirant, motion picture, music composer. If you’re a fan of movie scores, especially scary ones and want something to listen to on those cold nights when the wind is hollowing, then get into DARKMOOD.
