Blindead

Blindead was founded in Gdynia, Poland in 1999 by Michal Zimorski (Zima) - bass and Mateusz Smierzchalski (Havoc) - guitar. A few months later, Marek Zielinski (Deadman) - guitar, Konrad Ciesielski - drums and Patryk Adamczyk - vocals, joined the band. It was a casual project made for pleasure rather than a professional band. Besides, in the same time, Havoc became the guitarist of Behemoth and it was his priority.

Blindead was founded in Gdynia, Poland in 1999 by Michal Zimorski (Zima) - bass and Mateusz Smierzchalski (Havoc) - guitar. A few months later, Marek Zielinski (Deadman) - guitar, Konrad Ciesielski - drums and Patryk Adamczyk - vocals, joined the band. It was a casual project made for pleasure rather than a professional band. Besides, in the same time, Havoc became the guitarist of Behemoth and it was his priority.

Initially, the group, under the name of Incorrect Personality, recorded a demo material. In 2002, the band decided to record their first album with Arek "Malta" Malczewski in Hendrix studio and in Tower studio in the city of Wroclaw. However, the session wasn’t finished because the singer Patryk Adamczyk decided to leave I.P.

Searching for a new frontman took over a year. Finally, in the middle of 2003 Patryk Zwolinski (Nick) showed up. By that time he was a member of Neolithic. Due to his voice tone and excellent contact with the rest of the line up, he turned out to be perfect for the frontman position. Definitely it was a breakthrough for them. Two months later, the group under a new name, recorded a demo, entitled Dig For Me.

After his farewell tour in United States, Havoc left Behemoth, to devote playing in Blindead. From this moment, the band was playing regular rehearsals. The outcomes came immediately, as the style of the group developed.

In January 2004, another line up change took place. One of the founders, Michal Zimorski, decided to leave the band because of differences with the band's musical direction. His function was taken over by Brovar, known from co-operation with Behemoth, Immemorial and other bands.

In July 2005, in the city of Debica, Blindead recorded six tracks with help of Janusz Bryt, in his Screw Factory Studio. These songs belong to the first long play of Blindead, entitled Devouring Weakness. The album was released on 5th July 2006 by effort of Empire Records. Shortly after Brovar decides to leave because of his job as tour / stage manager which took up most of his time. Piotr 'Zvierzak' Kawalerowski took his place.

The debut album received good reviews in several magazines and web zines, which helped them to get on the first tour all over Poland with Hermh, Hell-Born and Massemord.

During the work on new material the band decided to search for a person who would be responsible for the samples and soundscapes. After a couple of weeks, Bartosz Hervy (Agonised By Love) was invited for a jam in the rehearsal room. He got into the material pretty fast and became a session guy for the recordings of the new album which took place in August 2007 once again in the Screw Factory Studio with Janusz Bryt as a co-producer. The band invited a long time friend Waclaw 'Vogg' Kieltyka (Decapitated) for a guest appearance. He recorded an amazing accordion solo for the song 'Phaze II: Phenomena'.

November 2007 brought another tour in Poland, this time with the leaders of Polish experimental grindcore - Antigama and Nyia. Hervy was still on board as a session musician, but that was about to change shortly after that tour. The band was sure that he was the right person so they asked him to become a full time member.

At the end of the year Blindead got an offer from Tomek Jurek (Deadline Agency / Shortcut by that time, currently Asymmetry Booking) to put one song on the promotional compilation, Shortcut To Polish Music, along with the bands Riverside, Behemoth, Antigama, Nyia, Proghma-C and many others. A couple of months later Tomek invited them to play as a support act for The Ocean and then on two shows with Cult of Luna.

After that gig the band signed a new record deal with Foreshadow Music and Deadline Records.

Autoscopia: Murder In Phazes came out in Poland on August 18th 2008. The worldwide release was set on October 2008.

Blindead released their first EP, Impulse in 2009, which consisted of 3 songs.

The group's latest album is Affliction XXIX II MXMVI, released in Poland via Mystic Production on November 26th 2010. « hide
