Already being talked about are the powerful quintet named Tainted Nation. Assembled firstly in his head by Pete Newdeck, it wasn’t too long before this aspiration became a stark reality. Drummer of Eden’s Curse – Pete had been busily writing and demoing material with friend and also Lionsheart Guitarist Ian Nash, putting together an album of powerful commercial yet modern heavy material. The twist being that this time Newdeck had sung. This material was given an overwhelming thumbs up by friends and music media collegues to the point where Newdeck and Nash wanted this to take a further route.
Having bonded a friendship on the Stratovarius/Firewind/Eden’s Curse tour with Firewind powerhouse drummer Mark Cross, Newdeck quickly approached his first choice Cross – Mark wanted in without question. He was overwhelmed by the identity of the music along with his surprise of Newdeck’s vocal ability and talents.
Pontus Egberg – bassist of The Swedish sensations The Poodles was also enthused by the fresh sound and what this band had to offer. Again he wanted in and soon after with the addition of a fifth member on second guitar, with Joel Peters this formidable line up was complete. The band announced the line up in 2010, with their intentions to complete recording as soon as possible.
The debut album F.E.A.R. was released on January 25,2013 and gained great interest within the media. Having already given interviews to media and radio stations. Recorded in Athens, Stockholm and Tewkesbury England, produced by Pete Newdeck and mixed by none other than Dennis Ward, who’s list of stunning album mixes and production is endless and widely talked about.
Say’s Pete: ‘I feel lucky to have had such jaw dropping contributions to this album-by everyone involved . It has grown into something that we, as a band are extremely proud of’.
Press are already alikening the identity to Sixx A.M., Shinedown, Bullet For My Valentine along with many past and classic influences, with a strong commercial vane running right through the middle. The band’s aspirations are to get out live and start the talking!! ‘We wanna show everybody exactly what we have to offer and why we believe so much in Tainted Nation’ says Cross.
At present Tainted Nation are busy touring across the UK and Spain in October. Ttheir first Video of the song “Loser” was released in February and a second clip is also underway.
