BLINDEAD is a band from Gdynia, Poland formed by Michael "Winters" Zimorskiego (bass) and Mateusz Smierzchalskiego (Behemoth - guitar) in 1999. After a few months Mark Zielinski (DEADMAN - guitar), Konrad Ciesielski (drums) and Patryk Adamczyk (vocals) joined the band. Initially this was more of side project for the members since they had commitments in other bands. In 2011, the band was nominated for a Fryderyk Award in the category 'Album of the Year – Heavy Metal'. Blindead are one of those rare bands that craft complex and dynamic material, yet often go unnoticed within the overcrowded prog metal scene. They try to distance themselves from the rest of the pack by shedding some of the traditional song structures so often overdone in metal, in favor of a captivating style that is both complex and unique.
