Markus Midnight’s “Death at Midnight”: Music review

With beats and synth lines that seem to draw on the best of moodier 80s Depeche Mode and New Order, mixed with elements of Nine Inch Nails and gothy darkwave synth acts like Dernière Volonté, Markus Midnight is exceptionally listenable, even if his vocal abilities are less than stellar and are more Soft Moon than Dave Gahan, couched in echoey distortion and more spoken word that melody.
“Death at Midnight” is his 2nd album, released in 2014. The album cover is terrible: a cheesy portrait of Markus holding a skull, floating in the clouds above a New England wooden church, replete with melodramatic drippy font for the album title. It’s a disservice to the music within.
