Split by MIDNIGHT / SHITFUCKER

Midnight and Shitfucker are two bands that define Hells Headbangers catalogue and probably are the jewels on the brand’s crown as only Nunslaughter can claim also to be a staple band for the U.S. label. So as the Hells Headbash II is on the way Hells Headbangers asked from the bands to write each one from a new track in order to release a split 7”. There are no surprises here. Midnight delivers again sleazy black ‘n’ roll at its finest and Shitfucker explodes their punkish urban black/thrash/death metal mixture as raw as it gets. “Sadist Sodomystic Seducer” (first recording since last year’s “No Μercy For Mayhem”) could have been in any other previous release from Midnight but still describes exactly how the band sounds to anyone that will listen their music for the first time. Same for “Nightmare Master”, the song from Shitfucker where it continues from where “Suck Cocks in Hell” stopped. So what you buy here is a totally top notch black n’ roll that probably collectors would appreciate more, as everyone else is (rather) expecting a new studio album from both bands in the near future. Untill then…
