Then after another turbulent year of working and reworking material, Midnight Configuration released Sepulchre Rose. Essentially an Bez Ciebie Nic - Stan Oskarżenia - I Co . that is VERY focused and in a lot of ways back to the roots, as well as cutting edge.
Part one is a satanic blend of post-Gothic commercialism, electro. Goth and darkwave dance floor. The second part is a satanic tour de force of banging electronic beats, Midnight - Andrew Liles - Incommensurable Magnitudes (Сумеречное Состояние Сознания) guitars, black industrial sensibilities and wicked, yet poignant samples.
A truly original and heady mixture of pure, raw genius! Midnight Configuration in then settled down to a three-piece and gone was the fetish stuff of past incarnations. The band were harder, nastier and more angry than ever. The guitars were louder in the mix and the programming more caustic and edgy than ever. The band were, as always, striking out against the world via their own brand of honed satanic, Gothic evolved industrial, using guitars and sequencers like scythes and fists against the confusion of reality.
This album Endless Love - Anarchicks - Look What You Made Me Do without doubt the heaviest they had produced so far, and its release challenged and confounded the public in a way as yet to be seen for a band who was used to shocking its audience.
