Tainted Third Studio Album "Into Temptation"

New Zealand Metal Weights TAINTED announce their long awaited 3rd album release “INTO TEMPTATION”

After a prolonged engagement, Christchurch Metallers Tainted are pleased to finally announce the release date of their highly anticipated third studio album, "Into Temptation" as the 1st of May 2015 .The Boys have once again teamed up with Producer Clint Murphy (whom produced their 2nd album “Carved and Created”) to create what they say is their best work to date, and for all those that have waited patiently for this album to be released will be treated to a new era of Tainted that will indeed deliver into a new realm.

Pre-Sales are available to hungry fans on their online merch store (http://taintedmerch.bigcartel.com/), with an extremely limited time hand pulled, editioned print made by their very own Slim. Printed on heavy weight, cotton rag archival paper, if looked after properly, it will stick around longer than your very mortal body.

Along with the album announcement, the boys have released their second video from the cycle, "Within the Crucible". The video, featuring footage shot while recording "Into Temptation" at Quicksand studios has been self-produced by Slim.  This is the second video Slim has now self-produced having released in late 2014 the video for “bleed for Me” as well.

The Axe Attack

With The Axe Attack announcement today a lot of people have been contacting me to ask if Paul's show will be coming over to us now that he has confirmed it will not be returning to the Rock. First off let me say I would LOVE to be able to say "YES!!!" and I would personally move mountains to make it happen if he told me he was keen, but I have to say that as of tonight I have no news to offer on this topic. However I'm certain that The Axeman has an ace up his sleeve, so I am confident that NZ's number one Metal DJ will be back on air real soon, and if it's not with us then we hope it is with an organisation who will keep his show's high profile intact and recognise/celebrate its critical value in promoting the NZ Metal scene. Cheers, Brendon Adam, Station Manager, metalradio.co.nz
