Mephitis - _Blinded_
by: Paul Schwarz (3 out of 5)
What can I say? _Blinded_ ain't a bad five tracks of music, it's nicely played, quite well produced, but ultimately lacks being special. Generally great or good demos partake to some degree of one of two things which makes them good, in my view. They can be original or they can excel in their chosen, albeit often cliched, style. _Blinded_ uses a mix of screeching (black metal-ish) vocals, a pounding rhythm section and mostly repetitive, thrashy, mid-paced riffs to get its 'point' across. The problem lies in the fact that _Blinded_'s 'point' is not the kind which is going to produce a revolution or a nostalgic riot: it just carries you along, like most of modern politics' evidence of hope for the future, though.
