DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present Gathered Under Open Skies, a special split mini-album between Germany’s FIRMAMENT and MIDNIGHT PREY, on CD and 12” vinyl formats.

Gathered Under Open Skies is indeed a special gathering, bringing together two forces that have become something like flagship bands for DYING VICTIMS: old “newcomers” FIRMAMENT and the reunited MIDNIGHT PREY. This special mini-album includes two brand-new tracks from both bands, totaling 23 minutes of vintage rock/metal moodiness.

FIRMAMENT continue their ascent following their widely acclaimed We Don’t Rise, We Just Fall debut earlier this year, having largely risen from the ashes of speed metallers Tension but bringing a different approach with them. Here, with new vocalist Marco, the five-piece further flesh out that velvety vision, taking turn-of-the-‘80s hard rock (and even a touch of equally early deathrock) down roads much more melancholic and emotive. You might even shed a tear while rocking out to their two fistbangers here; wherever you wanna go, FIRMAMENT will take you there. And tears may’ve been shed when MIDNIGHT PREY initially called it a day in 2020, but as of last year, the power-trio are back in action and, this summer, released a two-song tape to pick up right where they left off with their modern-classic Uncertain Times LP. Those two songs are provocatively titled – “Black Cat” and “Sword and Shield” – and between them, MIDNIGHT PREY keep that clean-yet-dirty surge that’s equal parts punk, rock, and metal but totally unique. And considering the epic lengths these two tracks go to, the future suggests more splendors to come…

Graced with gorgeous cover art, Gathered Under Open Skies is a borderless realm where hard rockers, punks, metalheads, and general weirdoes can all roam. FIRMAMENT and MIDNIGHT PREY care nothing for genre limitations, and together invite you into their idyll.
