Seattle's MIDNIGHT IDÖLS bring back the early '80s metal vibe, giving a convincing take on the classic NWOBHM sound with energetic songs, charismatic vocals, twin guitar assault and tons of attitude. Paul Di'Anno's era MAIDEN, PRIEST, SAXON, GRIM REAPER or TANK influences have always been there, but Idols' 3rd album is their heaviest, darkest and most aggressive release that also evokes early MERCYFUL FATE's spirit and adds PILEDRIVER's filth. This is high-octane Heavy Metal in its fist-pumping, foul-mouthed, denim & leather-clad glory!

• Cover art by Jowita Kaminska (Exodus, Manilla Road, Attacker, Forsaken, Witchburner, Metal Inquisitor, Metal Law...).
