Excellent album. Straight to the point. This is exactly what rock supposed to be. Young musicians without previous experience engaged wholeheartedly in creating this fantastic music. They have good ideas and realize them well.
Freedom is the most profound value carved in this music. Despite uncertain times, despite trends, despite everything, midnight is coming, so the best music prevails.
Midnight Prey is a band, which came from nowhere, and proves that good rock music is not only a past, but also a future for next generations.
Midnight Prey line-up:
– Winston (guitars, vocals),
– Daniel Friesen (bass),
– Hannes (drums).
I need to admit, the vocal on whole “Uncertain Times” is careless, guitars run hell-bent for leather, a drummer has no chance for Grammy awards. But come on, this is rock! Everybody, who isn’t deaf, will appreciate regardless.
Actually, this Hamburgian band was created not yesterday, but in 2012. Midnight Prey is already a developed band which doesn’t take a shit.
The strongest points of “Uncertain Times”?
Motorhead had a similar, free drive and a philthy image, but there was kind of a unique crispness on the first Motorhead albums “On Parole” / “Overkill” / “Bomber“, if you know what I mean. We have the same thing with Midnight Prey “Uncertain Times”.
It relates to blues, punk, heavy metal – yeah, but I couldn’t say, which music genre I can hear here. Reckless rock? Rock’n’roll? Perhaps. I would recommend you to take a time and listen to Midnight Prey.
