All from heavy and groovy riffs to melodic and swelling melodies.
Tainted Black is a five piece band from Stockholm, Sweden,
that like to take chances and explore the lore of true
hard rock and is inspired by classic acts such as Metallica,
Black Sabbath, Guns N' Roses, AC/DC just to name a few.
Originally founded in 2011 in the suburban town of Tumba,
which is located south of Stockholm. The guys played their
first live shows in 2017 and were getting great feedback
from audience and other bands as well. They recorded a cover
of Foo Fighters "The Sky Is A Neighborhood" together with
the band Carpet Dime. It was a great collaboration and
spawned new creative energy. They signed on to participate in
Emergenza festival, which is a contest for unsigned bands.
By a total of more than 40 bands, Tainted Black went on to
come 3rd place in the finals. After the contest the band
found new energy to take what had been done on stage to the
studio, and they were ready to record their debut album.
They decided to record in their rehearsal room.
The road was long and hard but through blood, sweat and tears
they finally finished the 9 original songs in the summer of 2019.
"We are very proud of this album, it feels like it became the
perfect statement of what this band is all about. It is dynamic,
heavy and have enough diversity to show our creative side."
Their debut album ”Tainted Black” was released 20th september 2019
