Awesome Re-issue of the superb debut studio disc from BLINDSTONE (a super-sonic, way-kool power trio from Denmark) featuring 13 tracks (64 Minutes) of mega-awesome, powerful, dynamic, killer, bluesy/funky, soul-powered, retro-70s heavy guitar power trio rock that cuts hard and deep with tons of groove, feel & vibe. "Manifesto" is an amazing, classic, timeless, bluesy heavy guitar statement.

BLINDSTONE features Martin J. Andersen on guitar & vocals, Jesper Bunk on bass and Benjamin Hove & Anders Hvidtfeldt on drums, each an amazing player in his own rite, contributing greatly to the overall style & sound of BLINDSTONE. The band works like a well-oiled riff machine of classic proportions with an emphasis on strong songs & musicianship. BLINDSTONE is all about the rock. As an added bonus, the Grooveyard "Manifesto" Re-issue disc features 3 brain-damaging, awesome, new unreleased Bonus Tracks including a bad-ass, killer, heavy cover version of "Gonna Be More Suspicious" by Robin Trower that features the Grooveyard�s own "grOOveDaWg" guesting on guitar. This amazing, deep Trower cover jam plus the other 2 killer Bonus Tracks will blow your heavy guitar mind and are worth the price of admission alone.

Martin J. Andersen is an amazing, gifted, bluesy axeripper with a killer, hard-assed, funky vibe. Andersen is a major riffmaster who gets down on the guitar with the best of them and lays down one awesome heavy riff after another, complete with righteous, get-down, Hendrix-inspired, rippin� leads on the "Manifesto" disc. On top of being an outstanding riffmaster on the guitar, Brother Martin also delivers awesome, clean, soulful, powerful, melodic vocals all over the place which add to make "Manifesto" a mind-blowing, memorable, killer heavy guitar power trio musical ride.

The BLINDSTONE: "Manifesto" disc is HIGHLY recommended to fans of JIMI HENDRIX (tune into their awesome version of "Are You Experienced"), ROBIN TROWER, FRANK MARINO, TOMMY BOLIN, EDDIE HAZEL (FUNKADELIC), KING'S X, RICHIE KOTZEN, STEVIE SALAS, LANCE LOPEZ and to people who dig awesome, hard, funky power trio rock with an emphasis on outstanding bluesy heavy guitar riffage.

Blindstone will rock your world into the next heavy guitar dimension with their solid, hard-assed, bluesy/funky, supreme "Manifesto" power trio groove.

If Freedom's Calling taps that nostalgic bug, invest in the band's first record Manifesto recently re-issued by Grooveyard records. A superb collection of 13 songs, the 2003 release combines covers and originals that mapped out the musical direction for the Danish three-piece. Of the self-penned numbers "Wasted Days," "Somewhere" and "Unifunk" with their rhythmic riffs, reflective lyrics and 70s tempo cast a long shadow over the whole record. The guitar sound is chunky with a slight distortion.The bass and drum grooves are thick and dirty and with the guitar coming in on top ignites a combustible. A stripped down "Temple Trippin'" burns with Deep Purple heat waves while "Say It Ain't So" is pure George Clinton funk. The more melodic "Open up Your Heart" and acoustic "Sleeping Alone" come close to Wishbone Ash in emotion and solid brilliance. The cinematic instrumental "By Grabthar's Hammer" is pure guitar overload with lead and rhythm tracks pile on top of each other. Three covers are added to the original recording including George Clinton's "Funkadelic Medley", Frank Zappa's bizarrely entertaining "Dirty Love" and Robin Trower's six-minute, deep cut "Gonna Be More Suspicious" featuring Grooveyard president Joe Romagnola.

A few months ago I received - like so many times before - an e-mail newsletter from the American record company Grooveyard Records, and to my big surprise I saw that they had released an album by a Danish (!) blues rock band. Now what the hell was this? No less was my surprise when I clicked my way to the label's website to listen to the stuff and practically got blown off my chair by the title track, Freedom's Calling. It goes without saying that the disc was in my mailbox a few days later and at Frisbee speed found its way to my CD-player where it stayed for quite a while. But how can it be that a Danish release of this caliber - and one that has gathered splendid foreign reviews at that - can pass completely unnoticed here in the duck's pond [a popular expression for Denmark], where one usually has a good sense of what's going on beneath the surface? And who are Blindstone anyway? The answers lie with Martin Andersen, the band's singer/guitarist, who was so kind as to do an interview with HiFi Review.
