By now, MIDNIGHT need no introduction. Guided by the twisted muse of mainman Athenar since 2003, the Cleveland cult has been slaying the metal/punk underground with their own, addictive brand of lust, filth, and sleaze, subsequently building up a sizable catalog and rabid fanbase. While praise for the band’s early EP work ran rampant, it was debut album, Satanic Royalty (2011), that elevated the band’s name to the annals of “classic.” Never one to rush things, MIDNIGHT further perfected their signature sound and continued their underground dominance with 2014’s No Mercy For Mayhee and 2017’s Sweet Death And Ecstasy. Fans can expect another bone-crushing full-length with Rebirth By Blasphemy, set for an early 2020 release via Metal Blade Records.

In advance of the release of Rebirth By Blasphemy and coinciding with the tour, MIDNIGHT have released the record’s title track as a seven-inch/digital single. Stream the track at metalblade.com/midnight, where select versions of the seven-inch can also be purchased.
