Blindfolded And Led To The Woods
Combining elements of death metal, grindcore and mathcore, Christchurch based BLINDFOLDED AND LED TO THE WOODS have been tearing up stages across New Zealand with their frenetic live shows for the last four years.
After forming in early 2010, the band quickly rose to internet fame after appearing on a TV show performing slam death metal in front of kids. Shortly after in January 2011, the band independently released their first EP “Armed to the Teeth with Jellybeans”. The band spent the rest of the year touring up and down the country promoting the release which culminated in sharing the stage with Psycroptic in October 2011.
Fast forward to 2014, where the band reconvened at STL Audio in Wellington under the microscope of producer Troy Kelly to record their debut album “My Vaseline Diaries”. This album due for release in November 2014 represents the past three years of the bands existence with ten ball-crushing songs packed from start to finish with blistering heavy riffs, insane time signatures and no time to rest.
