||Oddly enough, Blind
Myself now have 3 albums and 1 EP under their belts with relatively
little attention. “Worst-Case Scenario” would be their
third release and is a very well-produced effort. It contains 12 tracks
with around 45 minutes of highly progressive metal/noisecore. Blind
Myself remind me of earlier Neurosis with more of a Swedish sounding
metalcore style crossed with say- Katatonia. They are certainly not
like any metalcore band that I've heard before this, if you'd even
call them that. The Hungarian quintet have a very sophisticated sound...
a very fresh approach to the table. Take for instance, “Left
Hand Paints” (track 3), it starts like Killswitch and then the
music goes slightly doom/death with the Neurosis vocal-style. Assumably,
Black Sabbath has shown their effects on this newcomer as well. Daniel
Ivanfi is an outstanding drummer too! He can pretty much go from blast-beat
or double kick to slow-paced hi-hat breaks with virtually no trouble.
Every member seems to be comfortable with one another. They do seem
a bit too skeptical, though. What I mean is that it seems like they
don't know if they want to be more melodic or more up-tempo. Maybe
another album or two will answer that. Regardless, Blind Myself have
popped-up and out of the European underground ready for the world
to heed their presence.
