On the back of their last release, Nothing To Lose, British alternative rockers Cyanide Sundae wanted to develop further and make the best possible album of loud and fast songs. They are a 3 piece hybrid of alt-rock and metal and many bands have inspired each of them to deliver the music they have create (a lot 90’s grunge and alt-metal!) on their new album Blinded Generation.
The band’s sound and work progress has always been raw and with high energy and they wrote about 6 of the songs in two weeks; it was very organic, felt right and was in keeping with the attitude for this constantly evolving band.
For the album’s artwork, the idea was to have a fractured eye with the reflection of today’s news and social media and the way it programs into your head. Hence the title Blinded Generation. Cyanide Sundae’s front-man, Paul, with help from an artistic friend (Alan Walsh), designed the cover and artwork.
All in all, Blinded Generation is an in-your-face guitar noise-fest containing heavy rhythm, pounding drums, and distorted bass combined with angst ridden and intense vocals. Blinded Generation is a musical roller coaster of anger, fear, love and hope and is a soundtrack perfect for a chase scene, a fight scene, extreme sports, or an underground rock club.

“Can’t Run, Can’t Hide,” is an interesting number, a slow start, but with the darkness brewing throughout, it lends itself well to the theme of the album. “What Can I Do,” a monster song, with a thumping riff. “Cycle By Design,” moves and roars into being with some seriously good fret work. “Let Me Out Of Here,” shifts and fuses together, with brain and brawn. “Dead End Desire,” is a filter without stop. “Born Ready,” a bluesy heavyweight. “Under This Disguise,” is a softer song, with a thumping melody under the play. “Bleed,” brings the heaviness back, with a strong barnstorming riff. “The Rebound,” snorts its way into being, with some snort heavy riffs. “Better Now,” a dark number with some interesting melodical work. “The Hatch,” slows things down bringing to bear some true passion and anger. “Rage,” a snort ripping monster …read more
