you thought all good stoner rock was released on labels, eh?
Well, guess what - you're wrong! Blindman's Buff is one of the
best fuzz metal bands I have ever heard, despite the fact their demo
comes from the very depths of obscurity, all the way on the other end
of the globe (Belgium, that is).
All three of the tracks on this demo are superb. Not only do
they show promise, but they also manage to completely rock out; this
cd borders the line between "demo" and "ep".
The first track, "Utopian Dream", is a fine example of
Blindman's Buff's talent. Rocking along with awesome fuzz riffs,
stoned vocals, and steady drumming, the track completely tears up,
blasting forth with the power of thrash yet the sensibilities of
fuzz. At one point in the song, the band diversifies the mix by
throwing in a little bit of industrial stylings, all to good effect of
Directly following that comes "Will-o'-the-wisp", which
succeeds in being more accessible than "Utopian Dream", yet
doesn't sacrifice the stoned fuzz-power that the band carries out so
well. After that comes "9 Days Wonder", which is more
of the same, but, of course, that is by no means a problem.
Blindman's Buff is a great band - while all of their songs may
buried under tons of fuzz, they're still completely rockin' and as
catchy as all heck. If you're into fuzz metal, you'll dig this.
