Blindside

The title given to this article is incorrect due to technical limitations. The correct title is blindside.

blindside is a hardcore band from Stockholm, Sweden. They formed in 1994 as "Underfree" and kept that name for two years before releasing their debut EP in 1996. All members are Christian, and it is evident in their lyrics ("I thought about Your love"; "I caught a glimpse of Your eye"), among countless other examples.

In 1997, Solid State Records got a hold of the EP, and signed blindside to a record deal. The first album, which was self-titled, was released to American audiences. In 1998, Tooth & Nail Records issued a new EP, titled Empty Box.

In 2000, A Thought Crushed My Mind was released. It was their final album for Solid State, after lackluster sales of the two albums. P.O.D. soon started endorsing blindside (actually, they were doing so since 1998) and signed them to Elektra Records under the imprint, 3 Points.

2002 saw the release of blindside's next album, Silence. It generated minor hits in "Sleepwalking", "Pitiful", and "Caught a Glimpse". In 2003 they toured with Hoobastank in support of the album.

Then in 2004, About a Burning Fire was released. It has generated a minor hit in All of Us. In late 2004, it was announced that blindside were leaving Elektra Records per the band's request.

In 2003, the Warner Music Group was sold to private investors, and employees lost jobs as a result. Therefore, the label couldn't support them anymore. Thankfully the Blindside Union and P.O.D. Warriors are doing more than enough to help out. blindside sold out five of the shows they headlined this Summer (2004).

However, the headlining tour was marred by a couple of incidents. First, their tour bus crashed, and was in disrepair, so they were forced to rent a van. Second, their last show in Bartlesville, OK had to be cancelled. They went in to a restaurant after their show in Dallas, TX, and when they came out, they found every thing in their rental van stolen, including their passports and whatever money they had.

First, their tour bus crashed, and was in disrepair, so they were forced to rent a van. Second, their last show in Bartlesville, OK had to be cancelled. They went in to a restaurant after their show in Dallas, TX, and when they came out, they found every thing in their rental van stolen, including their passports and whatever money they had. Many of the Burzum albums feature illustrations by the Norwegian 19th century artist Theodor Kittelsen (1857-1914). However, the headlining tour was marred by a couple of incidents. Vikernes has renounced any connection with black metal and heavy metal music in general. blindside sold out five of the shows they headlined this Summer (2004). The Filosofem (1996) album was released to the public after Vikernes had been imprisoned. Warriors are doing more than enough to help out. Both albums rely only on keyboards and - in Vikernes' own estimation - are not related to the black metal genre.

Thankfully the Blindside Union and P.O.D. Vikernes has released two Burzum albums from prison: Dauši Baldrs and Hlišskjįlf. Therefore, the label couldn't support them anymore. He has expressed interest in Neo-Nazism and has written several books dealing with his worldview. In 2003, the Warner Music Group was sold to private investors, and employees lost jobs as a result. Vikernes was formerly a member of the far-right extremist group "Hvit Arisk Motstand" ("White Aryan Resistance"), and was once involved with the "Norsk Hedensk Front" ("Pan-Germanic Heathen Front"). In late 2004, it was announced that blindside were leaving Elektra Records per the band's request. Vikernes is suspected to have taken part in various other crimes, and was believed to have been planning another church burning at the time of his arrest (police found 100 kg of explosives in his home).

It has generated a minor hit in All of Us. Currently, Vikernes is in prison for the murder of his former friend and fellow musician Ųystein Aarseth (Euronymous of Mayhem), as well as the arson of several ancient Norwegian churches. Then in 2004, About a Burning Fire was released. He has stated that the "message" of Burzum can be found in the lyrics of the first song of the first album (Feeble Screams From Forests Unknown); that following lyrics act as footnotes. In 2003 they toured with Hoobastank in support of the album. Vikernes claims that the intent to create this fantasy world came from dissatisfaction with the real world. It generated minor hits in "Sleepwalking", "Pitiful", and "Caught a Glimpse". Each LP or CD, he claims, was designed as a kind of "spell" in itself, with each beginning song intending to make the listener more susceptible to "magic", the following songs to inspire a "trance-like state of mind", and the last song to carry the listener into a "world of fantasy" (dreams, for the listener would fall asleep - Burzum was supposed to have been evening music).

2002 saw the release of blindside's next album, Silence. Vikernes has described Burzum as a kind of "spell" or recreation of an imaginary world tied in with Pagan history. soon started endorsing blindside (actually, they were doing so since 1998) and signed them to Elektra Records under the imprint, 3 Points. Vikernes' music is generally considered to be characterized by hypnotic repetition and simple yet profound song structures; this trademark sound has been present on Burzum's black metal and synthieval albums alike. P.O.D. Musically, Burzum has progressed from primitive, raw black metal to classical-influenced ambient music characterized by minimalist tendencies and dark atmospheres. It was their final album for Solid State, after lackluster sales of the two albums. Much of Burzum's later work focuses on Norse legends, especially his most recent two ambient albums: Dauši Baldrs, which deals exclusively with the legend of the death of Baldr, and Hlišskjįlf, which recounts the death of Wotan and the approach of Ragnarok.

In 2000, A Thought Crushed My Mind was released. As he continued to release albums, Vikernes' attraction to Norse mythology and Pagan beliefs became more and more apparent. In 1998, Tooth & Nail Records issued a new EP, titled Empty Box. Some of Burzum's early songs featured titles like "En Ring Til Å Herske" ("One Ring To Rule"); however, Vikernes later explained this to be a reference to the Rheingold of Norse mythology rather than to Tolkien's works. The first album, which was self-titled, was released to American audiences. Burzum's early music shows a moderate Tolkien influence; for example, the name Count Grishnackh is taken from an orc character called Grishnįkh in Tolkien's works. In 1997, Solid State Records got a hold of the EP, and signed blindside to a record deal. Varg intended the Burzum project to be an anonymous effort, which was the reason behind his taking the name of Count Grishnackh.

All members are Christian, and it is evident in their lyrics ("I thought about Your love"; "I caught a glimpse of Your eye"), among countless other examples. Vikernes remained with Old Funeral for two years, deciding in 1991 to create a solo project instead, in which he could write and record a "more original and personal type of music" (some consider Burzum to be a progression of the band Uruk-Hai, for several of the same riffs are used in Vikernes' compositions). They formed in 1994 as "Underfree" and kept that name for two years before releasing their debut EP in 1996. Uruk-Hai's drummer and bassist, Vikernes claims, were neither serious nor talented musicians, but this was not the case with the members of Old Funeral (who eventually went on to form the notorious black metal group Immortal). blindside is a hardcore band from Stockholm, Sweden. In 1989, Vikernes broke away from Uruk-Hai to join the death metal act Old Funeral. Sleepwalking, Mainstream rock tracks, peaked at #31. Tolkien.

Pitiful, Modern rock tracks, peaked at #36. R. Pitiful, Mainstream rock tracks, peaked at #18. R. 2004 - About a Burning Fire. Uruk-Hai is the name for the orc race of Middle-earth from the works of J. 2003 - Silence. In 1988 or 1989, Varg Vikernes formed a group called Kalashnikov (named for the Kalashnikov assault rifle), which eventually changed its name to Uruk-Hai.

2000 - A Thought Crushed My Mind. Aarseth, known better to some by his stage name of Euronymous, played guitar for the well-known Norwegian black metal band Mayhem. 1997 - Blindside. Vikernes and his project were instrumental in the crystallization of early black metal, much of which is due to the infamy attributed to Vikernes since the murder of his rival Ųystein Aarseth. Marcus Dahlstrom - Drums. Vikernes is currently serving a prison sentence in Trondheim, Norway for murder and arson. Tomas Naslund - Bass. It was formed by Varg Vikernes (born Kristian Vikernes), under the name of Count Grishnackh.
