"Metal Hammer review"

Metal Hammer Magazine

“With a grunge-inspired melodic rock formula and a singer who sounds like Eddie Vedder, you could be forgiven for thinking Mind Gone Blind are a Scottish Pearl Jam. However, this is no bad thing, especially when every song delivers hooks in abundance and oozes soul from every orifice.”
- Metal Hammer Magazine


"Big Cheese Magazine review"

Big Cheese Magazine

“Hailing from the North East of Scotland, this fragile quartet are a breath of fresh air from all the questionable thrash and trad metal facsimiles I’ve encountered, they play melodic rock, tipping its hat towards the 70s and 80s without bumping into the AOR behemoths, yet there dingy production forces comparisons to grunge innovators Pearl Jam and others of their Ilk”. “Their song writing talents in particular outshine many of their more immature competitors, one to watch”

"Pure Metal UK review"

Pure Metal UK
“…from the first track to the last this album hits you right between the eyes with excellent vocals and guitar rifts from days gone but brought straight up to date with the unique sound of MGB.”
“What becomes apparent from the outset is that this is a band that can play good old Rock 'n' Blues with the best of them but, although similar in style to bands both old and new, have a sound of their own.”
- Pure Metal UK

Bio

An Eclectic mix of musical influences including Metallica, Pearl Jam, AC / DC and Free has enabled Mind Gone Blind to develop their own style of music which can best be described as “emotionally charged melodic rock music”.
January 2008 saw the band sign a one album deal with Ipswich based rock label RISING RECORDS and from that their debut album “LIARS & PREACHERS” was produced. The album was released 27th October 2008 in the UK and in Europe on 8th November 2008. Early reviews are very good both at home and abroad.

As well as playing their fair share of Scottish venues – supporting the likes of Nazareth, The Grim Northern Social, Dead Men Walking and Hayseed Dixie - the band has played many local festivals, bike rallies and charity gigs over the years and also donated a track for a forthcoming compilation album in aid of the Archie Foundation, raising money for Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s children unit.
