MIDNIGHT PRIEST "Aggressive Hauntings" details and pre-order.

The 3rd album of the Portuguese heavy metal stalwarts MIDNIGHT PRIEST was originally planned for a 2018 release, but had to be delayed to this year's Keep It True festival release date as it wasn't ready in time. Unfortunately, thanks to the incompetence and unreliability of the new pressing plant we decided to work with (actually together with the middleman who was handling our order), we didn't receive "Aggressive Hauntings" (as well as the other two releases: SACRAL NIGHT "Ancient Remains" and IN AEVUM AGERE "Canto III") for the festival. At this point it looks like we'll have them 2 weeks after the originally guaranteed delivery date, so we've set the new release date to May 10th. Anyway, the new MIDNIGHT PRIEST album is a bit of a come back to their earlier and more evil heavy metal style - it's definitely heavier and more aggressive than the last one. It sounds very classic and fresh at the same time and should definitely appeal to the fans of bands like JUDAS PRIEST, MERCYFUL FATE, RAM, TRIAL (Swe.), PORTRAIT, WOLF, ENFORCER and STEELWING.

You can listen to two new songs on our YouTube channel ("Aggressive Hauntings" here and "On Your Knees for Metal" here) or from the Bandcamp player on the MIDNIGHT PRIEST page, where we put also a third song, "Iron Heart". This is the album track list:

1. The Law
2. Funeral
3. Aggressive Hauntings
4. Eyes in the Dark
5. Holy Flesh
6. Ecstasy
7. Sin for Satan
8. Iron Heart
9. On Your Knees for Metal
10. Black Leather

You can find more info about "Aggressive Hauntings" and see the high-res cover on the page of this release.

The CD can be pre-ordered until Thursday, May 9th midnight Central European Summer Time (UTC+2) from our SHOP page. Like in the case of the previous releases, we made it available in a convenient bundle with the other 2 new releases (SACRAL NIGHT "Ancient Remains" and IN AEVUM AGERE "Canto III") and you can add to it also the new compilation CD "Compendium of Metal Vol. 12". Until then, we will keep the German shipping rates in the shop. Thanks to this, you can buy many more items for the same low shipping cost, which is particularly convenient for orders from outside of Europe and within Germany.

And, as always, those who don't collect CDs, can pre-order the album as digital download (in lossless formats) from our Bandcamp page. Later on, it will be distributed digitally by CD Baby and made available also from iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic and other retailers.
