ALBUM MIDNIGHT TERRORS
LABEL SLIPTRICK RECORDS
OUR RATING 80/100
Hellnite is an heavy metal project that was founded in 2010 in Mexico City by Paolo Belmar (vocals and guitar) originally playing covers of several bands.
The first EP “Manipulator” was debuted in 2013 and shortly after, the band ultimately dissolved and Belmar moved to Canada.
A metal fan from a young age determined to keep his project going, Belmar continued to work on the project in his new home of Edmonton, Canada.
He performed all the parts for the second album, “Midnight Terrors” which will be released in February 2019.
Hellnite now has a full lineup to play live and has been bringing their music to metalheads across Canada and plans to unleash the third album to compliment “Midnight Terrors” is underway.
After an interesting intro the first shot is PHANTOM FORCE, that shows technical structure of the sound of the band, maybe witch vocals a bit penalized in the mix.
SPIRITS PREVAIL push down on the gas pedal, always with a complex structure, with a personal sound between prog and thrash metal with a great job by bass.
BEASTS FROM THE DEEP is surely more classic while THRASH OF THE LIVING DEAD starts direct with a nonstop speed-thrash.
DARKER THAN BLACK is a step forward, an istrumental where live togheter a fancy arpeggio, sudden restarts and great changes of time.
If STAGE ON FIRE reminds us somethin'from masters such as JUDAS PRIEST, THE NECROMANCER and MIDNIGHT TERRORS, end in the best way this great platter.
