MM To Play Hard Rock Hell Helloween
We are delighted to announce that Midnight Messiah will be playing at Hard Rock Hell VIII in November. With bands such as Blue Oyster Cult, Queensryche, Y&T and many more, it is sure to be a fantastic weekend of great music, and we cannot wait to rock the stage!! We will be appearing on Stage 2 at 6:00pm on Thursday 13th November. If you are one of the fortunate ones who have a ticket (the event has sold out) get to camp early, unpack, enjoy a beer or two and check us out. We look forward to seeing you at the front of the stage!!

Midnight Messiah would like to thank everyone who came along to their London Show on 30th August. The crowd was rocking and the band was on fire! Thanks to Silent Divide and The Deep for their great sets, and to Terry Whiberley for organising the show. There are some videos from the night in the videos section.
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.

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!
