In 1983, Heavy Metal Shock Rocker Lizzy Borden devised his own brand of Metal in Los Angeles, California, in the midst of a dark and thriving new era in music as the genre was on the verge of taking over the world. Musically, Borden was emphatically influenced by 1970’s Glam Rock led by David Bowie, a New Wave of British Heavy Metal in Judas Priest, and the Shock Rock theatrics of Alice Cooper and Kiss. Over the last few years, while touring the world, Borden recognized the passionate young fans attending his shows, singing along and going nuts. Borden decided he wanted to make new music for those new fans, something they could call their own. Borden set out to create what would be his first album in eleven years. Producing the album himself, with Joey Scott as co-producer, Borden wanted these new songs to really shine, so he based the creative process around the atmosphere of the lyrics. Late at night, Borden took to his North Hollywood studio, alone with his thoughts, and conceived the songs that would bring My Midnight Things to a stark fruition. A multi-talented musician, in addition to vocals, Borden performs all the guitar and bass on My Midnight Things, while Scott contributed on drums, and Marliese Quance Mildenberger played a good portion of the keyboard tracks. The end result, My Midnight Things, built around the theme of Love, is a collection of music with an attractive aura that bites without warning. Sonically tight, My Midnight Things contains a well polished, glossy Power Metal sound with a touch of Industrial Rock effects, heroic guitar, and a seething use of keyboards. Vocally, Borden recorded his vocal tracks using layering which added a stunning presence to his voice. An impressive effort, My Midnight Things is a concrete dose of vivid Heavy Metal with dramatic and expressive lyrical content. Profoundly alluring, all the way through, the music of My Midnight Things is the type of album everyone can relate to as each track will reach you in some way. Possessing a strong talent for both music and lyrics, Borden has not lost his edge, in fact he has only gotten better. Fans of Lizzy Borden will be pleased to hear the Metal veteran’s best work yet.
