I originally found out about North Carolina’s Permanent Midnight back when I was doing the PDF versions of the Loucifer Speaks zine and I’ve been keeping an eye on them ever since. “Forever Never II” is the most recent track I’ve heard from the band and it’s most definitely not a disappointment.
The anger-filled vocals rip over the top of aggressive guitars, bass and drums – while a ridiculously catchy keyboard line weaves in and out of the mix. I’m guessing it’s a keyboard anyway… whatever it is, it works.
“Forever Never II” is a track that’s full of energy and is impossible to ignore. A real thrash/metalcore inspired gem.
