Midnight released their latest album, Rebirth by Blasphemy, last year via Metal Blade Records. ‘Rebirth By Blasphemy‘ is a rebirth,” states Midnight‘s sole driving force, Athenar. “It’s a change in life and it’s a rebirth of doing whatever the fuck you want and seeing what happens after that. It’s about saying yes, taking opportunities, taking a fucking chance.” These sentiments are backed up by the notorious – and prolific – underground band’s trademark blend of speed metal, black metal and punk rock, sounding both fuller and more raucous than ever before.
