Blind Race Seeing Red Review Normally when I go to review a new CD I read the bios first. On this occasion, work and deadlines meant I listened the albums a good 3 or 4 times before I even bothered to unpack the blurb.The fact I listened from start to finish so often was a good sign from the first to the last chord, I was transported to the early 90’s heyday of the Seattle grunge sound, the depressive dirges of Nirvana excluded, transporting me back to mushroom inspired chill outs of old. The best of Soundgarden and Alice in Chains were reborn in the intense riffs and vocals of Blind Race, tempered by the gentler acoustic Mediterranean riffs that have made Ill Nino and Breed 77 such massive live draws. Hailing from Ontario, Canada this distortion fueled four piece have the honesty to admit they are inspired by such luminaries as Alice In Chains and Soundgarden, whilst adding a Latin style to the acoustic guitar of some of their gentler tracks. The first track of the CD, “Seeing Red”, with its flowing wall of distortion interweaving with megaphone twisted vocals harked back to the heyday of the 90’s, with the shouted barking of Tommy Geraldes lending a modern slant to the delivery, a style guaranteed to attract the new Kerrang audience, whilst offering enough nostalgia to keep old grungers happy.  
Blind Race Metal'N'Roll Concert Concert review: Blind Race - metal'n'roll at the Velvet Underground Toronto Metal Music Examiner Costas, guitarist of Blind Race Photo credit: myspace.com/blindraceinc Yesterday, at the Velvet Underground, 510 Queen Street West, Toronto-based Blind Race threw a metal'n'roll concert that made the women scream of joy and the audience cheer. Blind Race is vocalist Tommy, Costas on guitar, Natalie on bass and Stelios on drums. Most of the band's music is written by Costas, ”I write the music and that sets the direction for where the songs are going to end. Then Tommy automatically writes the lyrics,” Costas explains and continues, ”normally, I will not tell Tommy what I was thinking when I wrote the music, but somehow he always comes up with lyrics that express exactly what I was feeling when writing the music – we have an almost spooky mental connection.” Yesterday, Tommy also had a great connection with the audience at the Velvet Underground. The crowd got really engaged in the concert when Blind Race played their metal cover version of Elvis Presley's ”Hound Dog;” a fine version spiced up with a little bit of heavy guitar and double pedal bass drums.

SEEING RED ALBUM COVER

Normally when I go to review a new CD I read the bios first.
