Midnight Rain - Evolution I

Midnight Rain
Evolution I
by Katarzyna Zakolska at 21 July 2014, 6:33 PM

MIDNIGHT PROJECT is an Eclectic Progressive Rock / Metal project from Lazarevac in Serbia.  Their debut album called “Evolution I” features 13 musicians and was released in November 2013. The creators of this project are Boris Šurlan and Vlad Invictus.

Great powerful guitar riffs & pounding drums in “Slaves Of The Machine” create the climate of JUDAS PRIEST and also is fine Heavy Metal shouting and melody chorus. What an incredible guitar solo is inside this track! In opener “Get Out Of My System”, are hard rocking guitars in 80’s style, memorable chorus with singing choir, and fine guitar solo.  Catchy refrain in spirit 80’s is also in “Every Dawn I Die” where Hard Rock is hear able in the riffs and guitar solo. Here is also a saxophone performance, and that really gives flavour to this song. “Walk Your Way” with female singing is another track where the band proves that Hard Rock is still alive, some DEEP PURPLE echoes are also here along with a fabulous guitar solo!

The calmer intro in “Living In The World Of Liars” is a nice intro, showing lower riffs in BLACK SABBATH style and a woman's voice perfectly suited to this track with memorable chorus. Rock 'N' Roll climate is very well hear able in the enjoyable song “My Pretty Baby” with melody and even nice harmonica. In “Happiness Updated” are listenable BUDGIE influences, Heavy Metal male vocals, stronger riffs and even LORDI echoes in the chorus. Ballad singing by woman “Just For You” is just excellent with calmer acoustic guitar! I like it very much!

The guys from MIDNIGHT RAIN are talented, so in the future I see them on the way they are now with new ideas. Their music can be described as Eclectic Hard Rock with Blues, Jazz echoes with elements of Progressive Rock and Metal. This album is a necessary position for every Rock and Metal fan who wants to listen to mixed genres and something new – easily connected different types of metal and just comeback to beautiful 80’s of Rock & Metal.
