Blindmunkee is the agit-rock quintet of G (Vocals), Mik (Bass), Stu (Guitar), Adz (Drums) and Lem (Vocals) from Melbourne in Australia.
Raking gouges out of societal dysfunction Blindmunkee offer an engaging sound best describe as hip-hop metal. Guitar welts emblazon the wall, as the bass and percussion bound around the room switching between grinding grooves and rumbustious lashes as a half spoken lyric ties the disparate elements together.
The audience is not left in a state of confusion, rather left wanting more, as Blindmunkee deliver an out-put that immediately on hitting play, makes perfect sense. The sneering rage captivates the listener as the quintet deliver their tracks that contain both melodic themes and out-right rancour and the body is left in the unusual space of head-banging whilst jiving.
Establishing an ever growing presence in their home country with their fiery live performances it will be interesting to see if Blindmunkee are able to transfer that to wider international audience and to help with this I hope they find some time to release more material as the tracks, whilst often focussing on National and Local issues, have a global relevance.
