Midnight: Satanic Royalty 12"
Latest album from the almighty Midnight! This time around there's a little bit more lead guitar in the mix, but this is still classic midnight... even though some of their riffs are patently derivative, I've always thought that Midnight have a pretty original sound, combining the catchiness of NWOBHM with Venom's ugliness, Celtic Frost's brutality, and classic punk songwriting skills. The packaging on this one is great, including gorgeous artwork, color vinyl, and a huge full-color Midnight poster. Essential. Hell's Headbangers Records
