Blindfold (Bel) promo (1992)



The guys gave me this tape when I sat down with them for the interview for Tilt!#7. I knew them quite well because 3 of them were co-volunteers at the Vort’n Vis. I had even been in a band together with Hans (Verbeke): I borrowed him a bass and an amp so he could join ‘Yuppies’Death‘ in ’88. After that he went on to sing for ‘Rise Above’ and then became the guitarist of this band, together with Sacha (Baelen; drums) & Wim (Vandekerckhove; vocals) from Menen – both ex ‘Pietje Roze Konin’ en de Zeven Gèssprietjes’ (Pete the Pink Rabbit & the Seven Grass-blades) – and Jan Maelfait (bass, ex ‘Spirit Of Youth’), from Roeselare.

The tracks on this promo are the same that appeared on the Sober Mind Meditation 7″ that Edward & Jeroen of Warehouse recs released. Musically they combined power and emotion, intimate and touching: “strong, uptempo melodies with a firm lick of crunchy metal”…

  1. Always liked ‘Blindfold’, from the first 7″ on to their last LP/CD, for the very simple reason that they were different from any other bands around at that time. Even when the H8000 thing was coming up they didn’t jump on the wagon and kept doing their own thing. Muchos Respectos even to this day!


  2. In my opinion the 7″ was fully payed for by ‘Blindfold’ but pressed under the name Warehouse because we were gonna take care of the distribution. I suspect that Edward made that deal, it’s all a bit blurry for me.
