Blindfolded and Led to the Woods - MNZ Interview: The Distorted Transmission 021: Blindfolded and Led to the Woods

11 Oct 2021 // An interview by Will Stairmand



Christchurch Metal Juggernauts BALTTW had a chat about their insane album that dropped earlier this year... the artwork, the songwriting and recording process and the postponed tour. Like the show? Help it grow with a like on their page. Cheers



 

About Blindfolded and Led to the Woods

Blindfolded and Led to the Woods formed from the dissolving band Sacrament which featured members J-rad (guitars, vocals) Stuart (guitars, vocals) and Tim on drums. Just before the end of Sacrament, Jazz also joined the band on 3rd guitar, changing their sound dramatically. Once the decision was made to end Sacrament once and for all Stuart began writing the first songs for Blindfolded.

After getting down half a set the band decided to recruit a vocalist, and the songs were becoming too complex for J-Rad and Stuart to continue singing over, so the decision was made to ask friend, Stace Fifield to join. He accepted and immediately gave the band a new feel and sound with his black metal high screams and brutal low growls. The band played thier first show at Als Bar on April 9th, 2010. At this show Stuart was approached by Nick Smith, and he made the offer to play bass for Blindfolded. The band talked it over and decided to give him a shot... Nick learned the whole set in 9 days and went on to play his first show with the band, nailing the performance securing his place as bass player for Blindfolded and Led to the Woods.

In the next stage of BALTTW Jazz was relieved of his duties in the band, and they continued to advance as a 5 piece, travelling the country destroying crowds young and old. 2011 saw Blindfolded and led to the woods sign to Swimming with sharks records USA, not bad for some drunken dudes from CHCH, New Zealand.

Brought to you by Will Stairmand from The Distorted Transmission, the 'Getting To Know You' series of videos has been created to introduce people who, in their own special way, make the music scene function. Bands usually get the limelight but without promoters, venue owners, studio engineers, photographers, videographers and the rest of the framework, we'd all be pointlessly jamming in garages forever.
