Cleveland’s favorite filth metal merchants, MIDNIGHT, today unleash “Nuclear Savior.” The latest single comes by way of the band’s forthcoming Hellish Expectations full-length set to drop March 8th on Metal Blade Records.

MIDNIGHT has been slaying the metal/punk underground with their own addictive brand of lust, grime, and sleaze dating back to the band’s inception. Filthy, belligerent, and obnoxious, MIDNIGHT makes music to start fights to. Blabbermouth once lauded a sound that’s, “sleazy and at times a little icky, but is also incredibly catchy,” while Distorted Sound observed, “Part of the reason why MIDNIGHT’s output is so fantastic is that it is supremely digestible. You know exactly what it is you’re going to be subjected to across the next 40-or-so minutes and that is always the audible equivalent of being repeatedly punched in the face by a large man with an anchor tattoo on his hairy forearm.” Invisible Oranges concurred hailing a simple but effective formula of, “maximum riffs, darkness and filth, no bullshit.

One-man-army, Athenar, has been churning out an ungodly racket, dropping countless demos, splits and EPs for over two decades, and in 2024 he returns with MIDNIGHT‘s sixth full-length, the blackened heavy metal rumblings of Hellish Expectations.

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.”

It’s a song about hitting the restart button,” continues Athenar on “Nuclear Savior.” “Flushing the old world down the toilet and giving the new world a chance. It’s actually a song of peace.”
