Midnight Idols are a band from Seattle, Washington that plays a mixture of NWOBHM and power metal and this is a review of t heir 2009 album "Sworn To The Night" which was released by Metal On Metal Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with no blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for t he synths when they are utilized briefly they bring a very sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine NWOBHM and old school power metal together to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding classic metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all clean singing heavy metal vocals, while the lyrics cover darkness and occult themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, dark, heavy, old school and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Midnight Idols are a very great sounding hybrid of NWOBHM, classic and power metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Beyond The Darkness" "Satan's Lullabye" and "Necropolis(City Of The Dead)". RECOMMENDED BUY.
