MIDNIGHT No Mercy for Mayhem

Album · 2014 · Hardcore and crust
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Time Signature
Evil like a guitar...

Genre: Satanic punk-metal

In all its filth, ugliness and misanthropy, Midnight's 2011 debut full-length "Satanic Royalty" was a bit of a positive surprise to me. In August this year the second full-length "No Mercy for Mayhem" was released on Hell's Headbangers Records.

So, how does it hold up to the debut? Pretty well, if you ask me. It captures the same dirt and filth of the debut album, and incorporates both punk rock and heavy metal in a manner reminiscent of Motörhead and Venom. In other words, the listener is treated to raw and primitive rock 'n' roll engendered into simple drumbeats and guitar riffs accompanied by gritty vocals and an equally gritty production. In comparison to the debut, this one leans more towards the punky and crusty side of things, although a couple of tracks are all out metal tracks such as 'No Mercy for Mayhem', 'Degradation', 'Woman of Flame', and 'Whiplash Disaster'. The less punky and crusty tracks on the album primarily align themselves with early 80s metal which was itself raw and dirty. While all tracks on the album are enjoyable, it is the metallic ones that stand out to me and 'Whiplash Disaster' in particular is fucking awesome.

In all its filthy glory, "No Mercy for Mayhem" is a very sucessful sophomore full-length album which should appeals to fans of crust metal along the lines of Tiger Junkies, Children of Technology, Discharge and Hellhammer.

All hail hell...

Genre: black heavy metal (Satanic punk-metal)

Having terrorized the underground with their fierce Satanic blend of heavy metal and crust punk, Midnight released their debut "Satanic Royalty" in 2011. This year sees the release of "Complete and Total Hell" which collects material from their underground releases prior to 2011.

Understandably, the quality of the material - productionwise - varies between various levels of lo fi production, but the music itself is pretty consistent, all of the tracks consistently combining punk rock and heavy metal. Some tracks, like 'Servant of No One', 'Hot Graves', and 'Turn up the Hell' are all out hardcore/crust punk attacks with 'Unholy Servant' also being on the more punky side. Other tracks, like the anthem 'All Hail Hell' as well as 'Berlin Is Burning', 'Endless Slut', 'Lord in Chains' and 'It's a Sacrifice' along with a considerable handful of other tracks draw more dominantly on hard rock and traditional metal, blending this with crusty punk, which results in a dirty and primitive brand of heavy metal which is not unlike Motörhead at their dirtiest. 'I Am Violator' even borders on being primitive speed metal, while 'Long Live Death' is a nod towards the mighty Hellhammer/Celtic Frost.

Because of its considerable length, "Complete and Total Death" might become a bit monotonous in the long run - lets face it, although it features energetic and hard rocking music - there is not a lot of room for a lot of variation within the style of Midnight. However, there is no denying that almost every track on its own is incredibly enjoyable, and if you are looking for some primitive Satanic punk metal to rock out to, then you have found it.

Rip this hell...

Genre: punk-metal

Playing a genre dubbed black heavy metal, Midnight essentially combines primitive traditional heavy metal with punk and inserts in it a context of Satanic decadence.

Now that sounds good, doesn't it?

And, to my own surprise, it did not take more than a couple of listens for me to get hooked on this album. Using dirty guitars and punkish vocals, but combining these with traditional metal and hard rock elements (just check out the bluesy guitar solo in 'Black Damnation' and the guitar trades in 'Shock til Blood'), Midnight offers up some primitive but very energetic and hard rocking music as in the case of the 'You Can't Stop Steel', 'Rip this Hell', 'Lust, Filth, and Sleaze', and 'Savage Dominance' all of which neatly balance metal and punk. Motörhead and crust punk seem to be particularly big sources of inspiration for the music on this album, and 'Shock til Blood' and 'You Can't Stop Steel' sound like an even dirtier Motörhead, while 'Holocaustic Deafening' and 'Violence on violence' are all out d-beating crust attacks. On 'Necromania' Midnight experiment with a primitive Celtic Frost-ish type of thrash metal, combined with a more melodic chorus.

The production is dirty and has a certain DIY feel to it, but it is far from lo-fi and suits the raw satanic rock 'n' roll music perfectly.

Midnight's black heavy metal (or Satanic punk metal, if you wish) is dirty, raw, and rocks fucking hard, and 'Satanic Royalty' should appeal to fans of Discharge, Celtic Frost, Venom and Motörhead alike.
