BLINDMAN is one of the few authentic hard rock bands coming out of Japan. They have just released their 8th studio album titled “Blazing Crisis”, 2 years since their previous release. “Blazing Crisis” portrays a dynamic and grandeur sound of powerful melodic tunes. This first class album not only satisfies the BLINDMAN fans, but has the potential of pleasing global rock fans still not familiar with the music of BLINDMAN. Tatsuya Nakamura, the guitar player of the band, appeals greatly with his melodic guitar performances filled with spirit. Also the producer, songwriter, and mastermind of the band.
Released at the end of 2018, "Reach For The Sky" is the new album by BLINDMAN, a really good Japanese band not well known outside Asia but a leading Melodic Hard Rock act in their country.Among Blindman's mentioned influences are Journey, Rainbow, Blue Murder, etc, and you can hear all of them in "Reach For The Sky", all done with their own touch.Just listen to opener 'Strangers in the Night', a pumping melodious rocker with a Journey's circa 1983 feel; driving keyboard swirls and soaring vocals. Killer tune.Active since the Nineties and with 9 studio albums under their belt (and 2 live), "Reach For The Sky" is the band's second record with new vocalist Ray and drummer Shun Minari. Ray is a revelation, a guy owner of a husky and soulful set of pipes.Second track "Now or Never" is just another excellent melodic hard rocker with traditional organ providing a classy sound and some great guitar work.'Survive' shows the classic hard influence via a racing yet melodic rhythm, same with the Rainbow meets Blue Murder 'The End of My Dream', another highlight.'Blue Moon' is a quite original semi-ballad / midtempo - not your typical song in this vein, atmospheric and melancholic. A more muscular rocker appears with 'Roll the Dice', with a John Sykes / Blue Murder touch, bluesy and very well arranged.The title track is driven by a sharp riff yet there's very melodious verses and a catchy chorus, then closer 'Angels Ladder' is the proper ballad on the record, which reminds me of the '80s German metal bands doing this type of tunes."Reach For The Sky" is a really solid classy melodic hard rock album by Blindman, a band that if nobody tell, you'll guess hails from America or Europe. There's great musicianship, fine arrangements, a very good accent-free vocalist and polished production.All songs are strong and melodious, perhaps the only downfall is the cover of the Crystals' 'Da Doo Ron Ron', a silly pop song that according to the band, they wanted to record to reach a wider audience.Anyway, this doesn't distract the quality of "Reach For The Sky", from a talented band to keep an eye on.
