Midnight

I’m a huge fan of promoting new bands. Or at least contemporary bands we can still go see in small clubs and who might need to sleep on your floor. Like Midnight, from Cleveland. They play Black n Roll.



Here is a record that I believe might be a compilation of everything they’ve ever done. Its called Complete and Total Fucking Midnight and if you’re an IC regular, I think this is for you. It’s like Hades Rise by Aura Noir only a little less serious. It’s actually EXACTLY like that.

IC fans will enjoy their goofy but ruling song titles, including but limited to, I Am Violator, Long Live Death, Endless Slut and TURN UP THE HELL.

Oh, and they’re one of those, “we light ourselves on fire all the time bands”, so easy on the hairspray when you catch them on their yet to be announced US tour this summer.



TURN UP THE HELL

I saw them last week, opening for Skeletonwitch, before they depart(ed) for show(s) in Japan. Very good, fun live band. The right mix of reverence for their Venom/Motorhead inspiration and smirking snarl. They wear executioner type masks and bullet belts on stage and the bassist/vocalist has a "I heart Venom" tramp stamp. The drummer showed up in khakis and a checked collared shirt, not exactly the metal uniform, looking like the just-got-off-of-work middle-aged dad that he probably is in real life. Then he got his metal on and went shirtless, hooded and then BA NA NA S for the performance.

Cobras- I haven't commented in a while, but I just wanted to say that I really enjoy the eclectic mix of metal, conspiracy theory stuff (favorite quote, "Well, we here at IllCon believe EVERYTHING. It's in our contract.") and illicit substance reporting.

Members of Boulder, eh? Rad!

Kinda sounds like Sam McPheeters singing for Bewitched, to me.

ReallyGood@Wounding ("Really"? "Mr. Good@Wounding"?): I appreciate your encouragement, nice to know you're still lurking. We do it all for the liitle guy (you).

Shelby Cobras said...

Sweet Roxx. Best 7" cover ever. Besides Big Bubba Yuck! Her Ass Tasted Like Shit!, that is. Remind me to smuggle those to work and scan 'em for you guys...

Vison said...

wow -the Annihilation Time link reaally hit the spot!
anything to recommend by those Boulder fellows that you guys seem to be keen on?
Also Daniel, if i may be so crass, anything to recommend by Mach 11, The Darvocets and Inmates? They're in the midst of such good company but i don't know anything about them!

Hey Vision, my favorite Boulder record is THE RAGE OF IT ALL(I'm biased cause I spent the money to put out the vinyl,it kills though.)Illogical has Ripping Christ downloaded which is also killer(it was their 10" and their early 45's). I just scored the Mach 11 album,it's good,solid NWOBHM kinda shite. the Midnight Myspace has a link on their top friends. Shit I forgot DESTRUCTOR(the Midnighters are/were in to0 many good bands). As far as the Inmates they have a full length on Pain Killer records? their in the vein of Chaos UK,complete with English accent,all the way from Cleveland,England. The Darvocets are kinda killed by death/dangerhouse records punk shit singing about aliens and what not. I don't have any download links but I'm sure there out there.I believe all the bands have Myspace pages. Thanks Illogical Contraption for the killer downloads and laughs....between yous and Cosmic Hearse I have some catching up to do on my muzac!!!!

Thank you Shelby and i apologize for not erm...actually searching in the IC archive. Really grateful for it!

My thanks to you, Daniel as well-The Darvocets kick ass, props to you for the heads up.

Oh and now that i've proven to be both greedy and lazy, how about an Annihilation Time post if anyone from the IC staff is up for it? It would be sweet.
