Blinded by Faith - _Veiled Hideousness_
(Tuxedo Productions, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (5 out of 10)
If you can't pick out the Cradle of Filth influence in this band from the first few seconds, may I suggest that you get your ears examined? Quebec-based band Blinded by Faith are talented musicians stuck in a rut. Their music is full of emotions and assembled with some very nicely organized melodic pieces; it is just that once the band hits its stride with the black metal attack they come off sounding like a carbon copy of CoF. It is a shame, but they bring nothing new or varied to the black metal scene. Maybe that was planned? Maybe not. Whatever the case may be, Blinded by Faith play melodic, keyboard-driven black metal that sounds like second-rate CoF at times. If that is enough to turn you on, then so be it. If it doesn't, cover your ears and move onto the next disc in your CD collection.
