The Bay Area Legends BLIND ILLUSION (with ex members from Heathen, Possessed, Primus and current members from ex-Heathen and ex-Death Angel) will be back in Europe 2023.    

Blind Illusion was formed by-15 year old Mark Biedermann, along with drummer Bret Hern and bassist Les Claypool (PRIMUS!). The band's earliest sound had been musically rooted as progressive metal, with Biedermann citing as his main inspirations Rush, King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Van Halen and Jethro Tull. However, external input from later musicians, many with ties to the Bay Area thrash scene would add a Thrash Metal direction to the band. In 1983 live recordings traded by fans with songs like "Death Noise", "Darkness", "Kamikaze", "World That's an Illusion", "Helter Skelter (Beatles)", and "Concerto" were part of their set list. Blind Illusion had already released 2 demos by 1983. During this period, Blind Illusion played extensively with bands such as Exodus, Testament, Death Angel, Metallica and Possessed playing shows throughout the area throught the 80's. Mark Biedermann took over vocal duties in place of former singer Dave White who left the band to join Heathen and released a third demo Trilogy of Terror that was produced by Metallica`s guitarist Kirk Hammett.
Blind Illusion was touring and recording new music in 2019.
Fronted by the band creator Mark Biedermann on Lead Guitar and Vocals, and featuring Doug Piercy of Heathen and Anvil Chorus on Dual Lead Guitar. With rock solid Bay Area music scene veterans Erik Cruze on the Drums and Tom Gears on Bass. Blind Illusion would like to thank our record label World in Sound Music and Thomas Tegelhutter of Head Bangers Open Air Festival for bringing the band to play in Europe for the first time in history in 2017. Due to rave reviews at the HOA, Oliver Weisheimer brought the band back to Europe to perform at the Keep it True Festival in 2018 for another epic show. With brand new songs and an EP we are once again heading back to Europe to play the Heavy Metal Maniacs Festival in the Netherlands this coming 21st September 2019!
