Midnight is an American heavy metal band that has made a name for itself with its raw, relentless sound and mysterious persona. Founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 2003, the band was initially a one-man project by Athenar (born Jamie Walters), who is the band’s vocalist, guitarist, bassist, and drummer.

Midnight’s sound is a fiery blend of speed metal, punk, and black metal, characterized by its aggressive guitar riffs, rapid drumming, and Athenar’s gritty vocals. The band’s lyrics often delve into themes of hedonism, violence, and occultism, contributing to their dark and rebellious image.

The band’s debut album, “Satanic Royalty,” released in 2011, solidified their status in the underground metal scene. Subsequent albums like “No Mercy for Mayhem” (2014) and “Rebirth by Blasphemy” (2020) have further showcased Midnight’s relentless energy and commitment to their raw, unfiltered sound.

Known for their incendiary live performances and Athenar’s unique on-stage persona, Midnight has garnered a significant following around the world. Despite their growing success, the band has remained true to their underground roots, continually delivering music that is as uncompromising as it is electrifying. Midnight’s dedication to their craft and their unapologetic embrace of the darker aspects of heavy metal have made them a standout act in the genre.
