Midnight - Let There Be Witchery (2022)


Unleashing waves of intensity and playful catchiness, Midnight has always stood out from the rest thanks to their bizarre lyrics and brilliant delivery. With “Let There Be Witchery” the band takes their sound to new levels with ten pummeling tracks filled with devilish sleaziness. Perfectly blending old-school Speed Metal elements with Black Metal undertones, this band is one that no Metalhead should miss out on.

The release kicks off with the blistering pace of “Telepathic Nightmare”, a solid piece with crafty guitars and extreme catchiness. Building up momentum, ravaging tracks like “Frothing Foulness”, “In Sinful Secrecy”, and “Nocturnal Molestation”, perfectly transmit that sleazy old-school vibe that the Athenar masterfully crafts thanks to the stripped-down sound and funky lyrics.

We love piercing guitar leads and tracks like “More Torment” and “Let There Be Sodomy” deliver them in droves, creating a very wild and epic feeling, immediately bringing images of the classical shredding of the early days of Metal. Showing a more melodic side, “Devil Virgin” has to be our favorite track in this release thanks to its relentless waves of riffs and tight drumming.

The fun never ends with this release, as heavy hitting pieces like the hilarious “Villainy Wretched Villainy” and the balls-to-the-wall attitude of “Szex Witchery” perfectly close this album. As you have read, Midnight is one of those very unique bands that is so full of energy and ideas that you never get tired of their antics. With “Let There Be Witchery” they continue to pump relentless songs filled to the brim with catchiness and sleaziness, so be sure to get a copy of this release and do not miss seeing their crazy intense live shows.
