Blindside - Silence LP 2002

What is it?
Swedish hardcore and Christian metal 'also rans' provide no nonsense rock blockbusters without any hint of religious undertones.

Why should you listen?
It basically does what it says on the tin; it's a quality hardcore/metal album. After initially flirting with limited Billboard chart success when this was released they have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by drifting into relative obscurity. It's a travesty of justice listening to this LP which possesses powerhouse guitars, melodic vocals and a little early screamo for good luck. Every track is a winner and you can purchase it for a penny on Amazon if you are lucky.  

What's it like?
It's like a really great rock band with no gimmicks, affectations or ambitions to sound like Blink 182.

What's the best song?
"Time will change your heart" is a bit grungy, a bit screamo and not at all Christian.

Who does it sound like?
Like a grown up version of the current crop of Kerrang bands.
