History

French Canadian metallers Blastfame released a full-length in late 2001 via Montreal's Neoblast Records. The album was produced by Jean-Francois Dagenais of Kataklysm at ZSound. The cover was illustrated by SV Bell.
Roy had also handled the bass upon formation, although at the time of the recording of 1999's Shadow demo one Jonathan Deslaurier had been the band's bassist. Blastfame has played live with other local acts like Kataklysm and Neuraxis.
Chartrand left the fold in the autumn of 2002.

Reviews

BLASTFAME - ABSTRACT EVOLUTION - NEOBLAST
Blastfame song after Blastfame song bores me. The moniker should have been a clue to the the nature of a band that can hardly do anything interesting. Blastfame is a monotonous act which fails because the singer has weak growling, the songs maintain the same tone and the bass drums are cursed with a weak and rattling sound. The guitarists attempt a couple of solos and different tones on the rare occasion, but on the whole fails to provide adequate cover for the rest of the proceedings. The lyrics read like the script to an Atari computer game and are fairly standard. Given how Blastfame is not a poser or K&F band, it is not appropriate to label them as irrelevant. As such let us say Blastfame is situated at the very bottom of the relevancy pole and should only be considered once one has bought the better bands of the speed and death metal genre.
