Their debut album, the dark and foreboding The Fabric, garnered praise across progressive community, who described "…an incredibly diverse and accomplished, exceptional debut album..." and called them "…nothing short of a UK Prog Supergoup" ( Prog Magazine ).
They quickly cemented a reputation as a high energy, must-see live unit and were signed up to play the Isle of Wight Festival, as well as winning the Best New Band award from the Classic Rock Society.
The songs are imbued with a true emotional depth and range, from introspection and angst, to excitement, anger and venting socio-political frustration. Whether through the direct, fearless songwriting, or the nuanced, inventive musicianship, Halo Blind explore creeping paranoia, soul-searching spirituality and everything in between.
With tripwire lead guitars, twisting bass lines and innovative beat work, there’s a lot going on both above and below the surface in their music. Powerful and complex, yet completely accessible, Halo Blind make cerebral music that rocks.
