Midnight a three piece Black/Thrash Metal outfit from Ohio joined forces with Michigan based Shitfucker a Black/Death/Thrash Metal band with Punk Influences to release a Split 7″ Single via Hells Headbangers on 30th September 2015.
Midnight’s contribution being the song ‘Sadist Sodomystic Seducer‘ and with a title like that I wasn’t expecting it to be anything other than brutal and that it was. Relentless drums, a strong bass line and raw energetic riffs. Think Disfago’s Midnight Marauder or Motorhead meets The Exploited on speed! They have a fan page on Facebook with nearly 30,000 fans and it looks like they play in masks so they look like the sort of band I’d like to see!
Athenar – Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Drums
Commandor Vanik – Live Guitars
SS – Live Drums
Shitfucker remind me in looks of a filthy Ace of Spades era Motorhead. Their contribution being the equally brutal and somewhat indecipherable ‘Nightmare‘ with a Motorhead fast beat and Demonbitch sounding like he was going to be sick in places! A punishing beat that could, indeed, give you nightmares if you listened to it last thing at night! Think Bones meet Disfago.
Demonbitch – Bass, Vocals
Shagrat – Guitars
“Motor City” Chaz – Drums
Overall verdict it’s not going to appeal to everyone. Two very fast, brutal punishing tracks which should appeal to fans of Motorhead, The Exploited, Disfago and Bones.
