Blind With Rain marks the final evolution of Aaron Geis' musical vision. The debut E.P. titled, "The Chemical Window", completed in September 2005, cemented his art with a new and experimental sound that is immediately both tender and severe. Its long-awaited, 2008 follow-up, "A Transmission of Data in the Static", assaulted new ground in the Industrial Rock and Electro-Industrial genres.
"...the music here is nothing short of excellent, with clever beat programming (not in the pain-in-the-ass virtuoso sense of the word), great use of reversed vocal samples (see, even the oldest recipes can bring good results when you're talented), and there's a level of melody-crafting I hadn't heard in ages."

2009 added three new releases to the Blind With Rain catalog: the instrumental EP, "Stillness and the Memory", the digital single for the song, "Again", and lastly the "A Transmission of Data in the Static" remix album, "Pressing Data with Digits".
With a name inspired by Dante Gabriel Rossetti's nineteenth-century poem, "The Portrait", Blind With Rain carries its origins well with the careful marriage of classic, industrial themes and pulsating instrumental pieces with an enormously broad selection of experimental layers and vicious hooks. The sound is at once distantly familiar and distinctly unique with shattering vocal tracks that pierce the subconscious and demand its submission.
