Midnight Special

Rated 3.33/5 (66.67%) (3 Votes)

Have you ever wondered how Venom's classic first two albums, Welcome to Hell and Black Metal, might sound when put through a filter that would add some Hellhammer, some Motörhead and even some doomy, punky and crusty elements? If not, then this Argentinean foursome could well be the answer to that question.

Dead Rooster, formed in 2010, and their eight-track debut album, titled Midnight Special, was released independently in May 2013, and then reissued by American Line Productions a year later for a wider audience, with the same songs and probably the same artwork. It's a really refreshing thing to hear an album like Midnight Special due to all the filthiness and rawness and spontaneous sounding live feeling that's incorporated into it. These Argentinean hounds of the filthiest hell rip your eardrums in half, causing you to have some of the worst fucking nightmares you can think of, and come uninvited to your home to destroy your property and eventually the whole house. Well, perhaps all this is something that won't happen to you in reality, but at least you got a fairly good idea about the stuff they do, didn't you?

Midnight Special is especially for the Venom, Hellhammer and Motörhead freaks. If you belong to that crowd, you can surely get plenty of entertainment from this release. I, for one, know I did.
