ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sweden has given birth to some of the best heavy metal over the few years, and Blinded Colony will be the next to follow in those footsteps.

The Haunted, Soilwork, In Flames, and Children of Bodom, Blinded Colony is the representation of the next breed of aggressive metal. With adrenaline-laced guitar rhythms, atmospheric synthesizers, and ripping vocals, Blinded Colony creates a distinguished harmonic aggression that hits you harder than a size 16 combat boot-to-the-face.

Formed in January 2000, by guitarists, Johan Blomström, Tobias Olsson and original vocalist Niklas Svensson, Blinded Colony was known as Stigmata. By 2002, the band had released two demos, Painreceiver and Tribute to Chaos. Tribute to Chaos caught the attention of Italy-based Scarlet Records. Coinciding with their newfound record deal, the band officially changed their name to Blinded Colony. Their full-length debut, Divine, was a testament to their work ethic, self-produced and released in 2003 on Scarlet Records and received full, proper, distribution in Japan through Soundholic Records. Blinded Colony and Scarlet Records parted ways a year later. This also marked ushering in of new vocalist, Johan Schuster. whose powerful, throat-tearing screams and soaring, clean vocals caught the attention of US based record label Pivotal Rockordings, who immediately took note of Schuster’s vocals and the energetic boost he brought to the band as a unit.

Blinded Colony began the recording process of their second full-length album, Bedtime Prayers, in the spring of 2006. The band choose once again to work without a producer and to record the album themselves at their home studio, SoundPalace. Not only was this a decision to keep out influence from producers and others, but, it was a decision that would present Blinded Colony’s music in the most organic form possible. With song titles such as “In Here”, “Need”, “Aaron’s Sons,” and “Bedtime Prayers,” in addition to the two singles, “Heart” and “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” Blinded Colony have their sights set on breaking out of the Swedish underground and into the global metal scene. The band also used online sites and services such as Myspace, Helgon, and Garageband to promote their new music. With music videos planned for the songs, “Once Bitten Twice, Twice Shy” and “Heart,” Blinded Colony intend to not only assault the listeners musically, but also visually with all videos to be directed by director Thomas Tjäder (In Flames). The first video from Bedtime Prayers, for the song “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” will hit your television and computer screens in later this winter.

It’s a feat of Blinded Colony’s own determination and vision that they have established themselves with a unique sound, without falling into the bottomless pit of Swedish copycat clone bands. Their drive to succeed has already landed them on the same stage with international acts such as Hammerfall, Dark Tranquillity, Evergrey, and Mercenary. With their Pivotal Rockordings worldwide debut geared for January 12 in Europe and January 9 worldwide, Blinded Colony plan to lead a path of aural and visual destruction through European tour in early 2007. Don’t be surprised when Blinded Colony breaks through as a household name.

Epic
Blined Colony lays heavy rifts that echo back to the days of At The Gates but mixes it with some of the epic choruses that Soilwork perfected. The song "Heart" is as beautifully constructed as it is addictive. Love it.

Very good CD, it sounds like New Wave of Sweddish Death Metal, a mix of In Flames (of Come Clarity), Soilwork, Darkane but original ideas! Good clean vocals and good growling! A+++

NO WORDS CAN TRUELY DESCRIBE
THE AGGRESSION OF THE GUITARS, AND THE MELODIC THEME ARE JUST TOO UNREAL! THIS ALBUM IS ONE MROE REASON WHY SWEDISH METAL IS JUST AMAZING. THE VOCALS ARE BONE-CHILLING, AND RAISE HAIRS, HIS SCREAMS AND CLEANS ARE THAT OF A GODSEND. I'D COMPARE BLINDED COLONY'S SOPHMORE ALBUM TO SOILWORK'S NATURAL BORN CHAOS... AN ALBUM THAT MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE TO IGNORE WHAT IS GOING ON... LIKE MENTIONED BEFORE, THE AGGRESSION IS JUST OVERWHELMING, I CAN'T BANG MY HEAD ENOUGH! GOOD PURE SWEDISH METAL - WITH A GREAT MESSAGE!

Kicks Sack, get it, or you are a disgrace to the metal community
Definetly ground breaking, I can tell a lot of hard work was put into the making of this album. Anything this good deserves the credit. If you like bands like In Flames and Soilwork, this is an album that is a must get. This album competes with In Flames and Soilwork easily. Great job Blinded Colony
