Midnight-Satanic Royalty

Hells Headbangers

It's hard to imagine that a band like Cleveland's Midnight (who have been around since 2003) are just now releasing a full-length album. This more or less one-man project (obviously with demons helping out now and then live and in studio) has had plenty of demos, splits, EPs, compilations and even a live release and yet this is the first real album to see the light of day. Jamie Walters (A.K.A. "Athenar") is the main driving force behind Midnight. Walters is pretty well known around Ohio having spent time in Abdullah, Destructor, Boulder (who I actually have several LPs from!) and Mach II. With Midnight the name of the game is gritty, raw and black Venom inspired thrash and man if this thing doesn't leave you feeling a bit bloody and spent by the time it is all said and done. This one isn't for the faint of heart or those that like their metal to be technical and precise. This is ugly, sweaty and just as nasty as the hell from which it was spawned. In other words it is METAL!!!!!!!!!!
