Notable: The band's next show will be a 35-minute acoustic set at Brass Monkey Saloon. Wade said the band is looking forward to shaving their sound.

Quotable: "It's kind of fun to break our songs down acoustically, because we do a lot of stuff with effects," Wade said. "When you break it down to the acoustics, you get to hear the base melodies that underlie everything."

"ROCKEYEZ.COM Demo Review"




Release: 2006

Reviewer: Brian Rademacher

Blind Rhetoric

Alternative, rock, whatever you want to call it, Blind Rhetoric is a legitimate prodigy in the vein of Silverchair and Crowded House. Brian Wade has that uncanny vocal style which mellows the heart the same way Neil Finn of Crowded House engulfs your senses. The music is full of rich sounds that will dazzle any listener. “Riot” is an amazing song that is written well and has the peaks of punctuation that is bottled up and explodes at the precisely the right moment… brilliant! One of the high points is “Better Hell” which has powerful chords with a variety of directions, going from echoes of The Edge of U2 to traditional alternative. All the songs on “Clockwork” have a good vibe and should have Blind Rhetoric signed in no time. Good luck guys. - ROCKEYEZ.COM

Blind Rhetoric is a four-piece, alternative rock band from Baltimore, Maryland. Blind Rhetoric emerged onto the Baltimore music scene in the summer of 2005. Our first studio demo, Ellipses, was released in July of 2005 and our first EP, Clockwork, was released in March of 2006. We have been steadily building our fan base with a combination of intense live performances and poignant songwriting. We’ve never been about proclaiming our greatness or tooting our own horn. Instead we like to let our music speak for itself. We are all perfectionists at heart, and we work long and hard to make our music as good as it possibly can be. We drive ourselves with passion and dedication. We are a band that matches our music with our work ethic. Music isn’t our hobby or our night job. Music is what we do.
