Bio:

Midnight Sun was formed in Summer 1996. Still under the name of Tranquility the group gave a series of club shows all over Sweden and - after changing the band name to Midnight Sun – recorded their debut album, Another World in the ´Roasting House` Studio. The CD was released in in Japan, Sweden and Germany in 1997 and received brilliant reviews in BURRN, Young Guitar, Music Life, etc. Their follow-up work, Above & Beyond was released a year later and showed, with the help of two guest musicians, drummer Hempo Hildén (Dokken, Slash, Glenn Hughes Band) and the brilliant guitarrist John Norum (ex Europe), the band in the style of the heroes of melodic hardrock´s á la Rainbow, Deep Purple and Yngwie Malmsteen. BURRN awarded Above & Beyond 89 from 100 possible marks and this was reflected in other reviews all over the world. For their third album, Nemesis (also awarded 89) Midnight Sun changed the line-up again. In the place of guitarist Chris Palm came the young, talented Magnus Karlsson who had already made a great name for himself for his fabulous playing in numerous other Swedish bands. Karlsson's fancy playing left a permanent mark on Nemesis and often led to comparisons with Malmsteen and even to Iron Maiden.New to the band is singer Jakob Samuel who has replaced shouter Pete Sandberg. "There were no personal problems between Pete and I," Reingold explains. "It was just the right time to go our separate ways. It's a bit like a football team - you have to change the players now and again to stay competitive. Even if such a shake-up means taking a certain risk." After Sandberg left Reingold contacted his old friend, Jakob Samuel who travelled down from Stockholm and who put all doubts aside at the very first rehearsal session together. "He was steaming!", Reingold recalls, still impressed. "His singing just blew us away." Guitarist Magnus Karlsson, who joined the band for the recordings of the last album, Nemesis has become an especially important part of the current Midnight Sun lineup. On Metal Machine, Karlsson can demonstrate all his talent. His precise, rhythmical way of playing and his clever solos prove him to be a brilliant instrumentalist, who enhances Metal Machine as much as he does on his own new Last Tribe album, The Ritual. Completing the current lineup is drummer Jaime Salazar, certainly one of the best and most popular Swedish drummers of the day and also a member of the Scandinavian progrock elite band, The Flowerkings. Majestic Keyboarder, Richard Anderson was invited to play as guest musician and although keyboard parts on Metal Machine are few and far between, Richard can be heard during his brilliant solo in ´Distorted Eyes`. The eleven tracks of the new album were produced by Anders Theo Theander (Majestic, Pain Of Salvation etc.) in the Swedish ´Roasting House` Studios! .

Album:

I don't really like to start a review like this, but it is the truth : if you are a die-hard fan of Judas Priest, Midnight Sun (Metal Machine) is for you. I agree the band is different compare to Judas Priest, but the feeling of Metal Machine reminds me the legendary heavy metal band. Don't misunderstand me, we are just talking of the "spirit" of the album as Midnight Sun has its own touch ... and is far better compare to these typical copycat bands."Metal Machine is by far the best album that I've ever made" Reingold (bass) said proudly. "I think it has an unmistakable sound, fits into the World Of Heavy Metal perfectly as the music and lyrics form a solid unit. Midnight Sun fans will really enjoy the new album" he added. I have no idea how what "sounding" previous Midnight Sun records, but I can tell you this one "shakes hard".Recently, I wrote a review on Treasure Land (Gateway) and one of our readers has left this message : "Listen to Jakob Samuel on Midnight Sun, you'll see that he improved greatly". Actually, I can hardly believe this is the singer of Treasure Land as the guy is perfect on Metal Machine. To be honest with you, I made the "bridge" between the two bands based on this message. Yes Jakob has greatly improved and sometimes I am wondering if this is not Heaven Gate's singer, Thomas Rettke, who sings all the way. Congratulation Jakob for this HUGE improvement.The eleven tracks of the album were produced by Anders Theander (Majestic, Pain Of Salvation) in the Swedish Roasting House Studio and the production is almost perfect. All songs are catchy, melodic, sometimes progressive, sometimes powerful and heavy. Finally, what I really appreciate on Metal Machine is its disparity. If you like heavy metal in general, I suggest you to check Metal Machine : just listen to Steel To Steel, Distorted Eyes, Keeper Of The Gate or Metal Machine and I am sure you will buy it immediately.The new generation is still inspired by the 80's, but when a band plays like this - and adds its personal touch - it becomes a real pleasure for the listener. Midnight Sun, a name we will not forget.
