A three-minute video teaser for “F.E.A.R.”, the recently released debut album from U.K.-based modern hard rockers TAINTED NATION, can be seen below. The CD was made available on January 25 via Massacre Records.
TAINTED NATION, which recently signed a worldwide management deal with Germany’s Rock N Growl Management, consists of the following musicians:
* Pete Newdeck (EDEN’S CURSE, GRIM REAPER, KILLERS, STEVE GRIMMETT) – Vocals
* Pontus Egberg (THE POODLES, LION’S SHARE, ZAN CLAN) – Bass
* Ian Nash (STEVE GRIMMETT, LIONSHEART) – Guitar
* Mark Cross (FIREWIND, OUTLOUD, HELLOWEEN, KINGDOM COME) – Drums
Commented Egberg: “For this [teaser video], we wanted to show that we do have fun playing rock’n roll! We all feel the same pleasure working together with such great chemistry.”
Added Newdeck: “There was no expense spared making this creative masterpiece of a teaser clip under the supervision of Cross. It oozes class! In all seriousness, we are having a ball and blown away by almost every album review. So far, so good.”
“F.E.A.R.” was produced by Pete Newdeck and mixed/mastered by Dennis Ward.
Newdeck, who is mostly known for his work with EDEN’S CURSE and bands like GRIM REAPER, KILLERS and Steve Grimmett, started writing songs with bandmate and friend Ian Nash, who also played guitar for Grimmett, in 2009.
While with EDEN’S CURSE and supporting STRATOVARIOUS and FIREWIND in May 2009 on their U.K. tour, Pete and then-FIREWIND drummer Mark Cross became close friends and discussed 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 the spring of 2010, Pontus Egberg, bass player for Swedish hard rockers THE POODLES, completed the lineup.
Newdeck, Nash, Cross and Egberg recorded the TAINTED NATION debut album in the U.K. and mixed and mastered it in Germany under the supervision of Dennis Ward, producer of many successful international artists.
TAINTED NATION‘s music is described in a press release as “a commercial, modern and powerful-sounding rock mix.”
