Format: Audio CD
Middian is the latest brainchild of former YOB guitarist/frontman/songwriter Mike Scheidt. For all those who don't know YOB then stop reading this and go find one of their records right now. If you consequentially haven't been compelled to seek out the rest of their back catalogue then there's no point reading on.

If you're already enlightened in the mystical way of YOB then I will continue.
Since Mike Scheidt was the mastermind behind YOB and now Middian also, the two bands aren't, as you'd expect, going to sound too different. There's still Mike S' unmisakeable guitar tone and dual vocal attack, slow, plodding doom tempos and crushing riffs. Yet YOB's music was almost spiritual and mystical in some psychedelic textures and passages. Whereas Middian are just evil.

The opener, Dreamless Eye, whilst not being particularly fast, is far more brutally heavy and aggressive than anything YOB ever put out. Scheidt's vocals are backed up by Will Lindsay's hardcore screams who also handles bass. This sets Middian apart immidiately from YOB as a completely new and revitalised beast.

Whilst being heavier and much more aggressive than YOB, Middian have forsaken the subtle amount of melody which made YOB so special. There's somekind of spark missing somehow. It's difficult to pin down. Middian don't have the psychedelic mysticism which was quite an integral part of YOB's overall aesthetic and have forsaken it for brutality.
This will not be a bad thing for most and certainly doesn't hamper the power and skill behind the songwriting, don't get me wrong, Age Eternal still is a great album, there's just an awe that surrounded YOB, for me at least, that has been lost at the birth of Middian.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different name, different band...duh!!! 4 April 2007
By punkgato - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
so Middian is Mike from Yob's new band...there are some strong similarities, and some distinct changes. First, this is obviously doomy and heavy, but the heavy psychedelic guitar nods are really toned down on Age Eternal. The sound overall is much more bleak and desolate, with more in common with serious gloomsters like Asunder, Buried At Sea, and the like...dark and menacing at times with brief respites of meloncholic melodies. Mike's trademark high pitched vocals are still very present, with the low growls there as well. Overall, the album is doomier but maintains familiar themes visited on the Yob records...recommended!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars long live MIDDIAN ... death to MIDIAN 27 Dec. 2007
By Self Induced - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
go out and buy this CD now while you can, since its going out of print as a result of the pending lawsuit on the band Middian.
5.0 out of 5 stars Doom of the the Highest Order 19 May 2010
By Corum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Out-of-print, almost unavailable, this record crushes almost anything else in the metal genre. Sample the track "Age Eternal" wherever you can find it--it's amazing!
Then order this CD fast--they aren't making anymore! [Middian was sued into nonexistence by a band with a similar name--a travesty.]

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 26 Dec. 2007
By Doomantra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album rules. Please don't get this band mixed up with the bunch of money grubbing, day-labor, white trash Madison, Wisconsin band who spells their name with only one D.

You see, this band has actually put out an album AND toured outside of their own state. Amazing! Not to mention has members from YOB, a highly influencial doom band from several years prior.

The CD? It's pretty good too! I highly reccomend it. That is, if you're not into crappy Wisconsin sports-bar metal bands who have tribal tattoos.
