Formed originally in Mexico City in 2010 and now re-established in Edmonton, Canada by founding member, vocalist and guitarist Paolo Belmar, thrash band HELLNITE will be unleashing "Midnight Terrors" upon the masses with their debut album slated for release February 12, 2019 on Sliptrick Records. The album was written and recorded by Belmar whom is now joined with a live line up consisting of bassist Konnor Miskiman and drummer Ryan Payne.
The full length is lyrically a paranormal and sci-fi themed concept album with influences from classic heroes such as Kreator, Slayer, Death along with next generation thrash and heavy metal such as Havok, Skull Fist.
“It’s basically an open door to the next stage of this project that I began in Mexico. I have been working on 'Midnight Terrors' since 2014 and I think it will be well received from people who are into oldies and classic metal. I want to provoke curiosity with this album; my purpose is to catch people’s attention so they can follow the next movements of the band, which are going to be a little bit twisted in comparison with 'Midnight Terrors' and can't wait to share the next release after this one.”
HELLNITE's first haunting is the album's title track, which can be heard at the following lyric video link:
