ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sink your fangs in deep!! Released by Witches Brew (Germany) in 2013, "Hour Of The Wolf" is a limited edition of 500 hand-numbered units worldwide. Included is an A1-sized poster (HUGE), merchandise order form, and lyric sheet. Very few copies of the Classic Black edition remain (Blue edition sold out)!

"Hour of the Wolf is two solid slabs of melodic Metal goodness from start to finish. Midnite Hellion is a band fans of Heavy Metal should be excited for, and if you’re not, then you need to pick up the Hour of the Wolf single from them and get ready for a group that has the potential to be the genre’s next big thing."

"Trenton, New Jersey based Metal band MIDNITE HELLION is a fast rising band and another in the growing list of old school Metal bands that are harking back to heavy metals roots and shunning the one-finger power chord and scream like a banshee style that has seen metal shrink from the fans consciousness."

"The record kicks off with "Hour Of The Wolf" that has a really early JUDAS PRIEST feel to it, melodic yet you know the band is going to kick you in the teeth. The group seems to focus on the song as a whole rather than have moments thus creating one hell of a full metal song, great bridge work, tempo changes, and some wicked work by their vocalist and her strong range. If you crave that old JUDAS PRIEST feel then this one is in your sweet zone. "The Morrigan" is the second song and kicks right in where "Hour Of The Wolf" left off, perhaps with a more old IRON MAIDEN feel though. I am unsure what the group recorded on, but it does have that old analog warmth to it that I think does wonders for metal as a whole. Again, they display sharp work all around on this song."

"Trenton, New Jersey's Midnite Hellion play a style of Heavy Metal reminiscent of the early 80s US scene, before glam took over. The band name is goofy but the music is not. Clear vocals, solid riffs, thick bottom end and bluesy riffs are the hallmarks of the two tracks on the band's second EP/single, Hour of the Wolf. When this is playing, I'm immediately reminded of the debut albums from Motley Crue and W.A.S.P. Simple, straight-ahead Hard Rock/Heavy Metal, unadorned by tricks or gimmicks, is what Midnite Hellion seems to be shooting for and, for the most part, they hit the mark. Even the font for the band's logo and the cover art are cool; the sort of thing that would have had me picking this up to check out, back in the day. A band to watch."

"Even though Midnite Hellion formed in 2011, they sound like they’ve been around for ages. “Hour of the Wolf” kicks off with some solid Heavy Metal hooks that suit the clean vocals perfectly. It’s as if listening to Judas Priest and Doro teaming up, and it sounds as beautiful as it is commanding. “The Morrigan” is draped in occult fuelled Heavy Metal melody comparable to King Diamond and even 3 Inches of Blood. There’s also a little less focus on the bass, unlike during “Hour of the Wolf,” but the drumming actually steals the show during the duelling guitar solos towards the end."
