Info for Midnight Lightning

"ROADWOLF deliver the very finest heavy metal from Austria with their second studio album Midnight Lightning, which will be released on 19 May 2023 via Napalm Records. With their debut album Unchain the Wolf (2020), the musicians dedicate themselves to the origins of the genre, drawing particular inspiration from legendary bands such as Judas Priest, Saxon, UFO, Dio and Ozzy Osbourne. But ROADWOLF are not only convincing on record, they already made the ground shake at the Wacken Open Air and have shared the stages with renowned acts like Enforcer, Skull Fist, Bullet, Lizzy Borden, Vicious Rumors and Night Demon. With their new album, ROADWOLF don't allow themselves a break and unleash their explosive sound once again!

"On The Run" is the album's massive opener: electrifying guitar riffs, a pulsating bassline and driving drums set the tone for the entire album. The title track "Midnight Lightning" underlines ROADWOLF's dedication to boisterous heavy metal: trotting guitar riffs lead to polished guitar solos reminiscent of early Judas Priest and blend with Franz Bauer's raspy voice to create a dense sound. With several Iron Maiden inspired solos and dynamic changes, ""Mark of the Devil"" and ""Sons Of The Golden Horde"" also showcase ROADWOLF's passion for big anthems and prove their flair for songwriting. While "Supernatural" initially reflects the quartet's softly played side with ballad-like verses, the song unfolds the raw power of heavy metal in the chorus. However, ROADWOLF show that this does not have to be implemented exclusively in classical form, especially with the track ""High Under Pressure"". While guitar and saxophone solos duel, the song becomes one of the absolute highlights of the album. ""Don't Deliver Us From Evil"" is bursting with energy and grooving beats like on ""Running Out Of Time"" set the mood for the Raven-inspired ""Savage Child"", which becomes a speed metal showpiece. The finale is the ballad ""Isolated Hearts"", which fuses gentle piano playing with melodic guitar interludes and the powerful vocals of singer Franz Bauer. With Midnight Lightning, ROADWOLF prove that heavy metal then, as now, is more alive than ever!"


Their thrilling live sets and numerous sampler contributions have long since ensured a loyal fanbase - in November 2020 ROADWOLF has launched their debut album "Unchain the Wolf". On their first long player, the Austrian band is going wild with ten energetic titles that conjure up the spirit of classic heavy metal and each of which has what it takes to become a hit. Already with the first pre-single "All Hell is Breaking Loose" the street wolves tear us from our seats and deliver a massive teaser on the album which was released in November 2020.

The four street wolves have been doing their mischief for a while now: EPs, demos, sampler contributions, a gig at Wacken, various festival shows, support shows with Enforcer, Skull Fist, Bullet, Lizzy Borden, Vicious Rumors, Night Demon and many more: it’s boiling in the underground.

ROADWOLF perform as a classic 4-piece line-up: vocals, guitar, bass and drums – enrooted in the heavy sounds of the 70s and 80s, this band will make no compromise in their show and sonic attack!

This album contains no booklet.
