UK-based modern hard rock band TAINTED NATION recently inked a deal with Massacre Records. The band’s debut album, F.E.A.R., will be released on January 25th, 2013. Check out the album track, 'Loser', streaming below:
Upon the band's signing to Massacre, vocalist Pete Newdeck stated: “This is a very exciting time for the band. We feel it an honour and a privilege to be signed to Massacre Records and we look forward to forging a strong working relationship together. The band is very hungry and keen to make an impact with what we feel is a strong and powerful debut album and in turn, we aim to hit the live scene with all guns blazing. It excites me to be involved with such a line up of talented musicians who are highly motivated and focused. This is only the beginning… 2 pints of milk, a loaf of bread, 20 cigarrettes, condoms, bacon, bananas, milk, sausages…”
The group, which recently signed a worldwide management deal with Germany’s Rock N Growl Management, consists of the following musicians:
Pete Newdeck – Vocals (EDEN'S CURSE, GRIM REAPER, KILLERS, STEVE GRIMMETT)
Pontus Egberg – Bass (THE POODLES, LIONS SHARE, ZAN CLAN)
Ian Nash – Guitar (Steve Grimmett, LIONSHEART)
Mark Cross – Drums (FIREWIND, OUTLOUD, HELLOWEEN, KINGDOM COME)
Tainted Nations’ music can be described as a commercial, modern and powerful sounding rock mix.
A sample of the song 'Dare You' can be streamed below:
Pete Newdeck, UK based drummer, singer and song writer, who is mostly known for his work with Eden’s Curse and bands like Grim Reaper, Killers and Steve Grimmett, started writing songs with band mate and friend Ian Nash, also Steve Grimmett’s guitar player in 2009.
Being on tour with Eden’s Curse supporting Scandinavian band STRATOVARIUS and Firewind in May 2009 on their UK tour, Pete and Mark Cross, drummer of Firewind at the time, also Outloud, ex-Helloween, Kingdom Come), became close friends and talked about the idea of forming a new band, only this time with Newdeck as the lead singer.
Newdeck’s vocal abilities were truly convincing and in spring 2010 Pontus Egberg, bass player of Sweden’s rock sensations The Poodles, completed the lineup.
Newdeck, Nash, Cross and Egberg, recorded their debut album in the UK and mixed and mastered it in Germany under the supervision of Dennis Ward, producer of many successful international artists and Tainted Nation was brought to life.
