Hell's Headbangers Records
Midnight - Shok Of Violence - LP
Regular price $ 15.99
Since 2003, Cleveland's MIDNIGHT have been slaying the metal/punk underground with their own, highly addictive brand of lust, filth, and sleaze, building up a sizable (and collectible) catalog along the way. And while 2012's HELLS HEADBANGERS-released Complete and Total Hell collection compiled MIDNIGHT's massive amount of EPs and splits up to (and successive of) their now-classic debut album, Satanic Royalty, the new kings of Hell needed yet another bursting-at-the-seams compilation that wrangles all their EPs and splits since that momentous debut: enter "Shox of Violence." But more than the usual odds 'n' sods collection so endemic to heavy metal, "Shox of Violence" features four brand-new songs to keep MIDNIGHT's rabid legion of devotees sated while their third album is being prepared. As such, those four songs are being released as a stand-alone 12" MLP, while the CD and tape versions pack a mammoth 25 tracks total. Across "Shox of Violence," in addition to the four new songs, you will find the cover of Venom's "Too Loud (for the Crowd)" flexi that was available exclusively to subscribers of Decibel magazine, some super-rowdy live tracks, and a handful of covers of MIDNIGHT favorites The Spits, covers of the likes of Quiet Riot, Girlschool, The Pagans, Australia's Taipan, and NWOBHM cult Crucifixion among others: all songs that have yet to make it to CD format, essentially. Complete and total hell - again! - complete and total MIDNIGHT, hear these legends-in-the-making at their rawest and most rabid..."Shox of Violence"!
