Blindead 23 is the new project headed up by Mateusz “Havoc” Śmierzchalski, whose name you might recognize from the Thelema.6 or Zos Kia Cultus-era of Behemoth or his previous project Blindead. Śmierzchalski is joined by Roger Öjersson (Katatonia, Tiamat), Patryk Zwoliński (ex-Blindead), Maciej Janas (Ketha), Vinicius Nunes and Paweł Jaroszewicz (Antigama, Obscure Sphinx, ex-Vader, ex-Decapitated).
We’re thrilled to debut the project’s new single “Toward The Dark,” whose music is nothing short of a solemn march toward a starless oblivion. Lyrically, Śmierzchalski touches on his journey toward sobriety after a suicide attempt and the long road to recovery. On a personal note, we’d like to congratulate Śmierzchalski for working on getting better, and we’re really excited to see where this project goes!
“For the past 2 years I was putting myself together after a suicide attempt caused by a long manic episode which led me to heavy substance abuse,” said Śmierzchalski. “A mixture of therapy, sobriety and treatment brought me back to life both on a personal and creative level.
“‘Towards the Dark’ was born after many hours of phone calls between Roger Öjersson of Katatonia and me during the therapy and rehab I was going through. He was such a good friend and support to me. That’s where the inspiration for this band was born. A few months later we had a demo of an album written and now here we are releasing the first results of this new artistic path we call Blindead 23 with you.”
