On January 24th, 2020, Midnight will release their new album, “Rebirth by Blasphemy”, via Metal Blade Records.

“"Rebirth by Blasphemy" is a rebirth”, states Midnight’s sole driving force, Athenar. “It’s a change in life and it’s a rebirth of doing whatever the fuck you want and seeing what happens after that. It’s about saying yes, taking opportunities, taking a fucking chance”.

Annihilator live in London 2019

The first on stage were melodic doom death metal 5-piece, Fragmentum. Bizarrely, this was their only performance on Annihilator’s tour, and they came all the way from Belgium to play tonight. Although this was their first ever time in the UK, many metalheads came down early to catch these guys, who have released their debut album “Pugnacity” earlier this year after completing a short tour across the USA with Children Of Bodom.

Anvil announces March 2020 UK Headlining Tour

Anvil head back to the UK for a 17 date tour in March 2020.

Of course there are bands that have garnered higher chart positions, sold more albums and filled bigger venues than Anvil. Yet there are few metal acts that have earned as much respect from their colleagues as the Canadian act surrounding vocalist/guitarist Steve “Lips” Kudlow, Robb Reiner and Chris Robertson.
