If you were to judge after how the first track starts, you would think that the entire album is out of this world: a voice that starts out calm and explodes throatily after a few harmonies, oppressive rhythms, from the slow limit up to the aggressive bar, all in a sombre atmosphere, sinister and full of mystery. This is pretty much BLINDEAD’S start. As you go further into the profundity of the album you discover repetitive elements, some monotonous, others that go by unnoticed. It is obvious though that ISIS, NEUROSIS or CULT OF LUNA are sources of inspiration and the music that the Polish band is playing is elegant, a different kind of Post Metal, slow but at the same time brutal, a music that leaves no space to hope, or to the light, it is more like it that the shadows would go by as homely characters within this type of music. A band with talent, but one that should detach itself from the usual patterns and to insist a bit more on originality, as it seems it has the aptitudes to do it.
