Doctor Midnight & The Mercy Cult - DOM, Helsinki (FI) 11.05.2011
One Minute To Midnight
Every time a Norwegian band steps out of the traditional and already hoary black-metal box – it becomes highly noteworthy. Yet, in case of Doctor Midnight & The Mercy Cult this wasn’t the main point of attraction. It’s the line up that caught the attention of the public in the first place. The band happens to be fronted by the legendary Hank von Helvete, whom you might have seen on stage with another magnificent Norwegian act – Turbonegro. DMTMC’s honorary axemen are: Anders Odden (Satyricon, Apoptygma Berzerk, Celtic Frost, etc.), Audun Stengel (The Kovenant, Apoptygma Berzerk), Tim Skold on bass (Marilyn Manson, KMFDM, etc.) and David Husvik (Extol) on drums. Whatever this stellar line up would’ve set out to make – it couldn’t suck by definition. And it surely didn’t.
The hype around this band has been accumulating for quite a while and at last the appetent fans got to hear the new single “(Don’t) Waste It” from the upcoming release I Declare: Treason. In addition to that Doctor Midnight & The Mercy Cult announced a string of live shows where the band is going to perform the new material. The first concert took place at DOM club in Helsinki on May 11. Needless to say we were there to witness this glorious event. Here are the things we learned at the said show:
