    Releases new album, ‘Let There Be Witchery’ worldwide

    Regarding this release and their upcoming tour (see below for dates), Midnight‘s Athenar comments: “Punish your earholes and play this album as loud as your stereo goes, go out to a gig and mingle with others that you don’t know, lick their faces and rub upon each other’s sweaty torsos to the hellish, neanderthalish noise of a band called Midnight!

    Currently featured on the cover of April’s Decibel Magazine (which can be purchased at: decibelmagazine.com), Midnight‘s Let There Be Witchery has already been hailed worldwide for being an “electrifying, speed-metal thrill ride” (New Noise Magazine):


    The welding of old-school sleaze and shock with the newfound refinement of tightly packing metallic mayhem has resulted in what may be the ultimate expression of what Midnight stands for in 2022.” – Blabbermouth

    With Motörhead-inspired riffs underneath debaucherous lyrics that would make Sarah Silverman blush, Midnight and its twisted mastermind Athenar have risen from the underground on leathery black wings.” – Metal Injection

    …a blackened bop with steely riffs and leader Athenar’s affinity for melodic undertones and shout-along choruses is again on display here.” – Loudwire

    … a perfect introduction to the Midnight’s Motörhead-playing-black-metal assault. This is ‘music to start fights to,’ as record label Metal Blade so gently puts it.” – Heavy Consequence

    … classic-style speed metal revival in fine form.” – Brooklyn Vegan

    Next week, Midnight will hit the road with Mayhem and Watain for the “Sanguine Sodomy of North America” tour, before heading to Europe and the UK for an extensive trek with Night Demon. See below for all dates!
