On March 8th, the masked marauder of Midnight will release their new album, Hellish Expectations, via Metal Blade Records. Adorned by the art of consistent partner William Lacey, Hellish Expectations continues Athenar's rip roaring blackened heavy metal madness. No gimmicks, all rage, the band delivers another confrontational outing with lead single F.O.A.L. paving the way.

Athenar comments:

"It’s a knuckle dragger with a fat cutoff. Pure testosterone meat. Probably the most concise and straight to the point MIDNIGHT album to date, and all written in a weekend. The album was written on pure reaction upon leaving the studio after listening to raw tracks from the previous album Let There Be Witchery. The final mix of that album was good, but at the time of laying it down in the studio, I didn't like what I was hearing and demanded a new leviathan of an album to be written that weekend."

Stream F.O.A.L. below and pre-order the record via Metal Blade.
