Biography

There are at least two bands called “Blindside”.
1. Band from Stockholm, Sweden.
2. 90s Straight Edge Hardcore band from Pennsylvania, USA. Members went on to form Stillwater and Atari.
3. Band from Australia (1992 - 1995) that appeared on the Summershine label.
4. Straight Edge hardcore band from Belgium.

1. Blindside is a / band from Stockholm. They formed in 1994 as “underFree” and kept that name for two years before releasing their debut EP in 1996.

In 1997, Tooth And Nail Records got a hold of the EP and signed Blindside. The first album, which was self-titled (Blindside), was released to American audiences. This album had quite a raw, feel and was well-received by fans of P.O.D. and Mr. Bungle.

In 1998, Tooth And Nail Records issued a new EP: Empty Box.

In 2000, A Thought Crushed My Mind was released. This album explored a harsher, more hardcore side than the band’s debut, and vocalist/chief lyricist Christian Lindskog also voiced his pain of missing his wife, Elina, while touring. Due to lackluster sales of the two albums, it would be Blindside’s final album for Solid State. P.O.D. began actively endorsing Blindside 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 such as “Sleepwalking”, “Pitiful” and “Caught a Glimpse”. In 2003, they toured with Hoobastank to support the album. Some fans consider this their best work yet, as it perfectly meshes Christian’s beautiful vocal melodies with the band’s dramatic, crunchy instrumentation.

    They are not a christian band you muppets! Its a big misconception. They have stated that themselves long ago also. Stop the nonsense and enjoy their awesome music! They fucking rock!

    Such a strange, yet great band. They kinda became like Thrice meets Celldweller on the latest album.

    I liked "Swallow" from the NFSU OST until I found out they are a christian rock band.
