BLINDEAD was formed in 1999 as a “fun” project for bassist Michal Zimorski and guitarist Mateusz “Havoc” Smierzchalski. Over time, the band became a more serious endeavor and after several lineup changes the group signed a deal with Empire Records. Their first album, “Devouring Weakness”, was released in 2006 and was followed by 2008’s “Autoscopia/Murder In Phazes” via Deadline Records.
During 2009 BLINDEAD played shows in Poland, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany and Hungary.
