Interview With Adam Frakes-Sime Of Hellblind

Hellblind, the exciting new project from long-term collaborators Mark Clayden (Pitchshifter) and Paul Fletcher (Romeo Must Die, This Is Menace), released their debut EP ‘A Plague On All Your Houses’ on March 23rd 2022 on Revenger Records via Cargo.

Formed in 2021 due to their frustration with lockdowns and cancelled shows, Clayden and Fletcher made a pact to conjure up the heaviest music they’d ever written; and boy have they succeeded. 

Combining the throat of Stampin’ Ground (Adam Frakes-Sime), arms of Romeo Must Die (Will Romain), fingers of This Is Menace (Paul Fletcher), eyes of Pitchshifter (Mark Clayden) and scars of Outside the Coma (Charley Olsen), if Hellblind were a witches brew, you’d expect something dark, unnerving and heavy. But the coming together of these scene veterans has spawned an unholy alliance with a difference.

It was my pleasure to have this interview with the amazing Adam Frakes-Sime, talking about the release, and much more, Check out the complete Interview on the YouTube video below.
