"COME AND GET IT"
BLIND RACE started out in 2005 as a few friends jamming together and by 2007 were a
full blown band. These guys are definitely a Metal band, but they don't really fit into one
sub genre of Metal. They take influences from Classic Metal, Traditional Metal, Thrash
Metal, Groove Metal, Alt Metal and Progressive Metal to create their sound and style.
These elements are smoothly meshed together and the styles flow and inter mix with each
other with easily. The majority of their sound would be based in a Modern Metal style,
like a lot of the stuff that would get played on Rock or Metal radio stations. They then
build off of this foundation. They take some old school and new school Thrash Metal
which is very dominate in the guitar work. The drums also have this as well as some
grooved out Metal elements. The drumming of Stelio Kentros reminded me a lot of Dave
Lombardo from his SLAYER & TESTAMENT days. The addition of keyboards into their
music really adds a different element and gives the band that extra something to make
them shine brighter than a lot of the other Metal bands in the scene. Tommy Geraldes
reminded me a lot of ALICE IN CHAINS mixed with STONE SOUR. If you are a fan of
bands like GODSMACK, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, ALICE IN CHAINS,
STONE SOUR & newer METALLICA then your going to love BLIND RACE!
