A LITTLE ABOUT US:

MIDNITE HELLION is a US Heavy Metal band from Trenton, NJ that has been making waves since forming in April 2011.  We have three releases to date, including "The Fever" (2011), "Enter The Unknown" (2012), and "Hour Of The Wolf" (2013), and have successfully toured the eastern US in support of our releases.  Having opened for countless National Acts since day one, such as OverKill, Raven, Grim Reaper, Onslaught, Artillery, Riot, and more, MIDNITE HELLION takes the stage by force and delivers a fun-filled high energy set that leaves the crowd wanting more.

Welcoming both Mario and Scott back into the fold, along with newcomers Gill and Roy, the band is rejuvenated with the new lineup and we are ready to record our first full-length album, to be released on Witches Brew in 2015. 

PLEASE NOTE

To help offset some production costs, both the vinyl and the bonus EP will be manufactured after the release of the CD.  If one selects a reward that contains these items, please be advised that they will be shipped separately and can take up to three months for them to arrive.


REWARDS:

Please read the reward descriptions on the right hand side of this page.  Most of the rewards are exclusive to the campaign!  All rewards stack unless otherwise noted, so if you pledge for one reward level, you also receive all the lower level rewards!

All CDs and Vinyl can be autographed by the band at no extra cost.

COMPACT DISC:  We are keeping up with modern times and will be releasing the album on a standard CD, signed at your request!

COLORED VINYL:  The vinyl itself will be a Kickstarter-themed color and will come with a USB stick of the entire album!  Extra surprises will be included with the vinyl edition, but you'll have to be patient! (This is an item that we intend to have exclusive to the campaign.  The record plant now has a 250 minimum for all colored vinyl orders, so if 250 backers select them as the reward, then it'll be exclusive - otherwise, the remaining units will be available for sale).  Signed at your request!

T-SHIRTS:  This design will be 100% exclusive for our Kickstarter backers and will be made to order only.  Show the world that you support original Heavy Metal and that you made Metal possible!  Please provide t-shirt size when selecting this reward.

BONUS EP:  As of this moment in time, the format is to be determined, BUT, we will be recording an EP featuring cover tunes and possibly some extra material.  This EP will not be available anywhere else, 100% exclusive to the campaign!

DVD:  Did you catch us at the Starland Ballroom opening for OverKill?  You did??  You didn't???  Here's your chance to relive the night (or for the first time) with an EXCLUSIVE TO THE CAMPAIGN DVD of our entire performance!  This item will NEVER be available anywhere else, and you can ONLY get it right here!

NECK BRACE & SHOT GLASS SET:  Awww, did the headbanger bang their head?  You're damned right!  The MIDNITE HELLION neck brace is perfect for those with whiplash, broken necks, or to wear just for fun.  This is the first UNISEX neck brace on the market, and it is EXCLUSIVE TO THE CAMPAIGN!  To help dull away the pain, a shot glass is included with the set.  Somebody get me a doctor, somebody get me a shot!

FREEBIRD:  We might regret this one...but by selecting this reward, YOU get to choose one cover song that we record for the BONUS EP.  Just like the token person yelling "Freebird!" at every concert, you get to do the same to us, except we will actually perform it!  Please note that the song will be subject to our approval.  If it is deemed inappropriate, you will be able to select another song.

ENAMEL PIN:  A brand-new MIDNITE HELLION logo enamel pin will be made available with the higher rewards!  These will be limited in number and could very well be exclusive to the campaign, should all of you maniacs order them all!

STICKERS:  The classic MIDNITE HELLION white logo sticker looks great on everything, including (but not limited to) instruments, cases, vehicles, signs, stores, police cars (we're NOT responsible for where you put them!), McDonald's drive-thru windows, and more!

Risks and challenges

While we have done our best to save up for the costly recording time and our label is able to assist in manufacturing the album, we still have fallen short financially. To make this happen, the following costs need to be covered:

-Tracking/Mixing/Mastering
-Artwork
-Advertising
-Shipping (our label is based in Germany, albums are VERY heavy!)

We want to be able to deliver the best possible album for all of you, so we are cutting no corners and sparing no expense to be certain that you'll be pleased with the end results!

The campaign will end on Christmas morning, so please help us have a happy holiday season! Thank you to everyone for their support! If you cannot contribute, please spread the word! Cheers!
