European henchmen BLIND TO FAITH’s A389 Recordings debut, Under The Heptagram, is out now, the hymns captured on the brief but brutal one-sided 12” EP unloading a tremendously menacing and dangerous blend of punk-infused metallic contempt. Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Nails, Integrity), the EP bears an etched B-side and was released in a limited run of 666 copies. Featuring members of Rise And Fall, Reproach and Dutch cult legends Insult, BLIND TO FAITH fuses crushing influences from metal giants Celtic Frost and vintage death metal with depraved hardcore anger and morose punk persuasion of GG Allin and Eyehategod. A true soundtrack for a burning world.
Today, VICE’s music entity, Noisey, helps bring BLIND TO FAITH’s cult works into the mainstream, streaming the entire Under The Heptagram EP RIGHT HERE.
BLIND TO FAITH will take to the streets of the UK mid-month, joining American tyrants Nails on the Campaign For Elimination UK Tour. From November 13th through 16th the two bands will bring their combined absolute hatred to Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol and London.

“A long plodding awakening of an intro guides the listener into a trance until a thick hardcore riff breaks all focus. The d-beat extravaganza, complete with dive bombs and thunderous drums, pounds the speakers… Colossal low end brooding riffs and rhythms motivate this evil spawned. 4.5/5” – New Noise Magazine
“One look at the cover of Under the Heptagram and it’s clear, Blind to Faith like Eyehategod. But Blind to Faith take influence from a far wider range of bands, including Integrity, Celtic Frost, black metal, and much more on their latest EP…” – Noisey
“…three of the most authentically vicious tracks you’re likely to hear this side of the end times… see if you can resist flying into a murderous rage.” – Tight To The Nail
“Short but savage, Under the Heptagram, is an angry, barbaric teaser that makes me crave more. Absolutely sick. Highly recommended. 90%” – Absolute Hell
“Benelux bruisers Blind To Faith’s latest release, Under The Heptagram is a worthy addition to the D-beat-meets-Dismember trend that has emerged in recent years… the 3 tracks of vicious hardcore on offer here put Blind To Faith far ahead of the snarling pack.” – Echoes And Dust
