Midnight Aftermath is a prog metal band very much in the vein of
Queensryche or Dream Theater. With a sound that truly hearkens back
to their prog heroes these guys are really fun to listen too. The
guitar work is complicated and often Petrucci-esque. I find a lot of
the riffs to be very tasty and some of the rhythms are just great!
The bass playing is solid and some of the lines remind me of Ray
Riendeau's playing on Star Monarchy Volume 1. I really like his
beating rhythms. The drumming is awesome and shows an awesome
performance. With a combination of crashing fills with solid double
bass parts he does not disappoint. The fact that this band has two
drummer is really cool and it makes for a fairly unique sound.
Finally the vocals are killer and the singer can really nail it. He
completes the band. My sole recommendation is that this group improve
their production a bit because as it stands the songs could
definitely have a better mix. Yet with stellar songwriting and great
musicians Midnight Aftermath could very well be the next boig thing
