Welcome to a walk on the darker side of Christian music. I am not aligning Under Midnight with anything remotely occultic or demonic, just that their recent album 'Void' is many millions of light years away from the kind of 'Praise Him On The Harmonica' type of Christian music that finds itself colouring the background of many Christian charts over Sunday lunch. To call this Chicago-based band hard-edged would be a masterpiece of understatement as their work is never unfocussed, even if it is sometimes obscure. The album mixes a great deal of metal and industrial elements with many ingredients from club-dance music, but having said all this 'Void' never commits the sin of being over-produced. Consumed with the fear that mega-bytes are taking over the world this band have some very interesting observations and almost prophetic insights into our age of communication. The opening track "Lie To Me" welcomes us to "Dystopia", a world where the need for superficial gratification and momentary sensation rules. The greatest strength is the poetry of lyrics, here we see Under Midnight's part in a message revolution that dates back to U2. The greatest weakness is that all the tracks sound the same. I found myself wanting to experience something new on the 'Void'. It's new, it's creative and it's not at all safe. I look forward to seeing the band evolve more.

Very good and interesting album. Unafortunately, there aren´t similar jobs in this country.
I will make an industrial and christian rock band, in spanish -and english, why no?- for a contracultural and christian choice for rockers (If God likes it).
My English is a little English, Excuse me, but "Nice to meet you".

Yeah...

Void remains one of my favorite albums of all time. Lie to Me is an accurate description of the corporate/governmental situation we are all invoved with. Void is a great song should anyone wishing to investigate the cry of the searching heart. "Come on and make me feel, Come on, please be real...." Killer cry out. It hits deep. Love these guys. Id love to hear a comeback album and some new stuff. They were ahead of their time, Im sure they'd be right up to date. espeially since 911 and the things that have happened since then.
