MIDNIGHT Wake The Dead On New Track

Share This:

On March 4, Midnight will release their fifth full-length, Let There Be Witchery, via Metal Blade Records.

For a preview of the album, the new single, Nocturnal Molestation, can be heard below.

Filthy, belligerent and obnoxious, Midnight make music to start fights to. Since 2003, one-man-band Athenar has been churning out an ungodly racket, dropping countless demos, splits and EPs – and in 2022 he returns, delivering a catchy mixture of black metal, speed metal, and dirty punk rock. “I always want it to be loud and nasty,” he asserts. “That kinda thing never gets old with me. How funny will that look to see me at age 77 – if I reach that point – sitting on the porch blasting Hellhammer?”
The title is a combination of the song titles Let There Be Sodomy and Szex Witchery, Athenar wanting to maintain the tradition of using six syllables. Lyrically, the record is “unfiltered savage animalisticness”, and the deeper the listener delves, the dirtier they get, which is just the way it should be.

When it came to tracking the record, Athenar returned to Mercenary Studios in Cleveland, OH and producer Noah Buchanan, who makes it very easy for him to cut loose and make noise, choosing to once again record all the instruments himself despite having a live band that could step in and help out. “It’s still just me and my science project gone awry. I realize I’m musically handicapped, but there’s a charm to it.”
