Formed in 2007, Midnight Realm has risen from an amateur home project to an internationally recognised modern melodic metal band. Initially a home studio venture by founding guitarists Daniel Russell, Stephen Traut and keyboard player Alan Bestwicke, the trio were joined by various live musicians until 2009 when Bestwicke left the band to move across country. At this point the group relocated to Newcastle hiring keyboard player John Dalziel in the summer of 2009, and finally bassist James Carter & vocalist Liam Posselwhite in 2011. The band released their début EP ‘Polarissima’ to critical acclaim in March of 2012. The record features drummer Alex Rüdinger (The Faceless, Conquering Dystopia, Threat Signal) with critics citing it as “Some of the best metal to come out of the north east since Venom” and “An impressive demonstration of how metal has to sound in the future”. Session drums were handled by Stephen Cross through till May 2012 when Mortimer Chang drummer Patrick Deans was named a full time member of the band. In summer 2013 Midnight Realm announced they were taking a hiatus to focus on personal lives and other projects, however by July 2014 the group had revealed that they had once again been writing, with former keyboard player and founding member Alan Bestwicke returning to the group as their 7th member. On 22nd September 2014 "The Rebuild), the first single from their upcoming release was released exclusively via Metal Injection. The song features guest vocals from Chris Clancy (Mutiny Within) and a solo from Bloodshot Dawn guitarist Benjamin Ellis. The band is set to release their first full length album at some point in 2015.
