Alex Makes HIs MM Live Debut
We were homoured to be invited to play at a special gig. Kevin Riddles, bass player of Tytan, and formerly of Angel Witch of course, asked us to play at the post wedding gig (Wedfest) following his marriage to Julie. Our old friends, Desolation Angels were also asked to play, and it was great to catch up with some old familiar faces again. It was a great evening, and was also the debut appearance of our new bass player and vocalist Alex, who passed his "baptism of fire" with flying colours, just as we knew he would. Welcome to the band Alex! May we wish Kevin & Julie all the best for their future life together. Below is a picture of the gig, taken by Peter Foster. Thanks Peter.

The cover artwork of Elixir's 'The Son of Odin' album is featured in a new book by Martin Popoff and Malcolm Dome entitled 'The Art of Metal'.
The hardback book has 224 thick, 80 lb. gloss, full colour, richly printed pages at a large page size of 10” x 11,” with lots of tiny print – every pages is bursting with pictures and writing.

Elixir In NWOBHM Documentary
Elixir feature in the Power Metal Point 'What Is the NWOBHM?' documentary. The documentary features 15 minutes of facts, images of the period, and finishes with 15 of the narrator's favourite tracks as samples of the NWOBHM genre. 'Treachery' is included as one of the 15 samples, and if you watch closely, you will spot a rare picture of the classic Elixir line-up (at 06:44) off stage after just playing their first live show (supporting Tokyo Blade, at The Royal Standard, Walthamstow, London on 4th January 1985). The band are unsure as to how that picture got into the hands of the film makers!

MM Welcome New Bass Player
We are delighted to announce that Alex Machell will be joining Midnight Messiah on bass and vocals.
As bass player and front man of rock band Stash The Silver, we have been aware of Alex for some time.
Alex is not only a very talented bass player but also a great vocalist, and his voice along with Paul's, will bring a new dimension to the live performances.
Midnight Messiah would like to thank Dusty for his contribution to the band and wish him well.
