    Ok, here's my stretch. The Pixies. Wave of Mutilation cover features a metalish blob like the pic, Black Francis also has the letters abrain. I said it was a stretch.

    Also, Frank's surname is Black.

    Pixies would be very cool. And timely...

    DD/MM/YYYY?

    Clue 1 was a black square. DD/MM/YYYY released an album of the same name, Black Square.

    Reading about Johannes Trithemius, his most famous work was placed on "Index Librorum Prohibitorum" for nearly 300 years but deleted off the list shortly after 1900. The album Black Square was released in Europe on the Deleted Art label in Europe.

    Barani - an honourable title given to the warriors or kings in ancient Tamil Nadu. One member of DD/MM/YYYY is Matt King.

    I cannot find a "blowfish" connection... yet.

    I would consider this a major band, but it's not one of the legendary holdouts along the lines of AC/DC, Metallica, Beatles, Pink Floyd, etc -- the ones that always get requested and we can never offer good news about.

    I want to be careful here, as I don't want to give anything away, but this is not an indie pack -- it's a major-label artist with a successful career, multiple albums, and a fan base.

    Blowfish has served its purpose. It was the encryption algorithm needed to decrypt the hidden image. No further relevance.

    yeah, blowfish, johannes and the black box were just clues to decrypt the hidden image.

    As i understand things, we currently have 3 clues:

    distorted image
    black
    B a r a n i
