Sleep Deprived Music Review: Midhaven

Of the Lotus & the Thunderbolt’s artwork by indie artist Gaurav Basu (aka Acid Toad),

How does the universe know exactly what we are looking for sometimes? I didn’t even know that I was looking for Of The Lotus & The Thunderbolt. I would only be happier if I happened to walk to their stage during a live show. Is there an age limit on following a band around the world? Are there any positions for a den mother or something?

The album is the latest release from heavy metal trio, Midhaven of Mumbai, India. I think their sound is a good mix of progressive rock and metal. They remind me of While She Sleeps with slightly less screaming and more of a variety of drums. My personal favorite songs on the album are “Primal Song” and “Zhitro.”

The album is based on a theory of time. Time is an interesting subject to so many people. People could discuss time in a million different ways. Midhaven wanted to base their album on a certain aspect of time.

“Not clockwork time, but universal, cyclical time,” the band says. “We’ve grown up with a belief system that has repeatedly told us that things that have happened will happen yet again, and again, and again. Time is seen as a continuum, and there are more universes than just this one. These are subjects we’ve debated and discussed from time immemorial. From the ancients, right down to us, this is how time is experienced where we come from. So naturally, when we started discussing lyrical concepts, time is something that all subjects were ultimately pointing toward. We were acting from an awareness that in this grand circuit of the cosmos, the self is constantly recreated in every moment. It’s not just about time, it’s also about a very personal experience of that time, through the aeons as life itself. It ultimately boils down to how time chisels to perfection the one universal soul that finds itself echoed in every living being. For reasons not entirely known to us, it felt as though time channeled itself through us for the creation of this album. We were merely conduits in this process.”

I would like to listen to Midhaven at whatever festival they will be playing at or at a glamping destination.
