Blindside - About a Burning Fire
[quote]Having gotten their start in Stockholm, Sweden under the name "Underfree" during the first two years of their career, Marcus Dahlström (drums), Simon Grenehed (guitar), Christian Lindskog (vocals) and Tomas Naslund (bass) eventually changed their name to Blindside upon the release of their second demo in 1996. Being a regular in the Christian heavy metal scene of Sweden, Day-Glo Records eventually followed with the release of Blindside's self-titled first album in 1997. After a distribution deal with Tooth and Nail Records, the Empty Box EP came out the following year. The Thought Crushed My Mind followed in early 2000. Two years later, the band released Silence, their first for Elektra. Tours with Hoobastank and P.O.D. followed in September and October. [/quote] But now the new album has been released, it is called ‘About a Burning Fire’. The formation from Sweden again found his way after the last album ‘Silence’. This album really inspired me because of the unique vocals and awesome music. I was really curious for this new album. Will they follow their roots or use a different style on this album. Luckily enough the first song let me hear the band still followed their great sound. The band successfully made a very good album, compressing its aggressive, at times bellicose vocals and blur of blistering guitars into still meaty, but safely melodic chunks of meaning. Later on the album the sound is more and more different according to the previous album. I can hear that the band did some experimenting. And they did this successfully. The song ‘All of Us’ is different from the rest of the album, it is a mix of Radiohead and Hoobastank. I wasn’t used to this sound but they had a tour with Hoobastank so maybe they got influenced. A highlight on the album is ‘After You’re Gone’. This song is really energetic and the drums are great in this song. The vocals are still typical for this band. Everything that is great about this band can be heard in this song. For me Blindside got more mature and this album will be in my CD player a lot this next weeks. The album is a must for each heavy rock fan. Line-Up: Marcus Dahlström (drums) Simon Grenehed (guitar) Christian Lindskog (vocals) Tomas Naslund (bass) Tracklisting: 1. Eye of The Storm (4:02) 2.
