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.
MM Rock At Metal Wave
We had a great time at Metal Wave, and it was fantastic to meet up with some old friends (and meet some new ones!).
Thank you to Hayley & Jeff for organising a very successful event - the day went extremely well, so congratulations are in order!
You can see some videos of Midnight Messiah performing at the event here: Metal Wave UK
Below are some pictures from the day.
New - Video of the Month
We thought it might be an interesting idea to feature a video taken from either Elixir's lengthy career, or Midnight Messiah's catalogue, and place it in the spotlight for a month on the new Video of the Month page. There will be a short story behind the video, along with the link to view. We hope you find it interesting, informative and enjoyable. Please click on the videos link on the menu on the right every month to see a new video featured.
