F.E.A.R.!

Pete Newdeck, UK based drummer and singer/songwriter, mostly known for his work with Eden's Curse, Grim Reaper and former Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Dianno, began writing songs with long term friend and guitarist Ian Nash of the Steve Grimmett Band in 2009.

Whilst on tour in the UK with Eden's Curse supporting Finnish Power Metal legends Stratovarious and Firewind in May of that year, Pete first met Firewind drummer Mark Cross (Outloud, Helloween, Kingdom Come) and the two became close friends. Soon ideas were swapped between them and the talk inevitably led to the formation of a new band, except this time with Newdeck swapping drumsticks for a microphone!



Boosted by the backing of Cross and producer Dennis Ward, Newdeck relished the challenge and his new found confidence in his vocal abilities soared. In spring 2010 bassist Pontus Egberg, of Swedish Glam Rock sensations The Poodles, completed the line up.

Newdeck, Nash, Cross and Egberg recorded their debut album in the UK, whilst it was mixed and mastered in Germany under the supervision of producer Dennis Ward (Angra, Krokus, House Of Lords, Pink Cream 69, Unisonic) and TAINTED NATION was born! TAINTED NATION's music can be described as a commercial, modern and powerful sounding rock cocktail.
