Blind Idiot God  


An obscure instrumental trio, Blind Idiot God was one of those bands content on doing their own thing, likely not caring one bit whether they ever made it as rock stars. As with many other all-instrumental groups, their influences often ranged far beyond metal and thus their style is difficult to pinpoint, with shades of spacey interludes, art-noise-rock, math metal, etc., all competing for space. Like other bands in this ballpark (two others that come to mind, by no means soundalikes but vaguely similar in what they were trying to accomplish, are Praxis and Don Caballero), Blind Idiot God is a risky bet -- very rarely mainstream, sometimes capable of pure excellence, other times hit-or-miss.
