Blindside - Blindside (DRT Entertainment) - Back
The self-titled Blindside record has been re-released for your listening pleasure. Originally release in 1997, this is their rockin’ hardcore debut album. Their approach sounds almost as if Rage Against The Machine and Weezer were mixed with a hardcore band. Not only are the original twelve tracks remastered but this disc features original demos of “Liberty,” “Superman,” “Stolen, “ and “Forgiven.” Those songs were previously available only in Stockholm, Sweden as a limited edition. I’ve always found it refreshing to hear music digitally remastered, not that the production was bad before, but why not listen to an album that is more crystal clear? “Lars” Marten is back to freshen this disc up. One more added attribute to this re-release is vocalist, Christian Lindskog, designed new artwork for this special release. This CD should be tempting even for those who have the original release. With added tracks, artwork and their distinct sound, there is something for everyone on this disc.
