Photo by Hannah Verbeuren Notorious and prolific Cleveland cult, MIDNIGHT, will unleash its sixth full-length, Hellish Expectations, on March 8th via Metal Blade Records.

One-man-army, Athenar, has been churning out an ungodly racket, dropping countless demos, splits, and EPs for over two decades, ultimately slaying the metal/punk underground with his own, highly addictive brand of lust, grime, and sleaze. Filthy, belligerent, and unapologetically obnoxious, MIDNIGHT makes music to start fights to and in 2024 Athenar returns with Hellish Expectations, a ten-track sonic assault of blackened heavy metal nefariousness.

"It's a knuckle dragger with a fat cutoff," elaborates Athenar, "Pure testosterone meat. Probably the most concise and straight to the point MIDNIGHT album to date, and all written in a weekend. The album was written on pure reaction upon leaving the studio after listening to raw tracks from the previous album Let There Be Witchery. The final mix of that album was good, but at the time of laying it down in the studio, I didn't like what I was hearing and demanded a new leviathan of an album to be written that weekend."

In advance of the official unveiling of Hellish Expectations, MIDNIGHT has dropped the record's first single, album closer "F.O.A.L." (AKA "Fuck Off And Live"), alongside an accompanying video.

Proclaims Athenar, ""Fuck Off And Live" is an ode to the people who peacefully want to die to escape the realities of life, while they should really live and suffer."

Watch MIDNIGHT's "F.O.A.L." video at THIS LOCATION.
