Taunted Issues End-Of-Year Update

California metal act Taunted has issued the following year end update:

"Well, with everything changing in the world it's a constant battle for everyone to keep their lives positive and keep banging away to stay above water. We wish everyone a great 2010 and hope life is better for all. This being said, we must say that it was a great year for Taunted and we thank EVERYONE for staying true and supporting us. After our 'ZERO' cd we knew we had to come up with a follow up CD that was better and stronger than 'ZERO'. Hence the writing for 'BLEEDING BLACK' begin and the journey was great to say the least! Writing, recording, and all of us in the TAUNTED camp sharing new memories was quite the life experience for all of us. Once we had a hand full of songs written we begin performing some of the songs live which was satisfying to hear the progress of the songs and the fans responses were good.

"The recording at Trident studios was professional and relaxed but Juan really pushed us and we also pushed our selves trying to get the best disc we had ever done. From early responses. and reviews it seems we succeeded. Every bands hope is to make a CD that stands on its own yet reflects the over all feel of the brand of music they put out. We definitely stayed true to Taunted and also put out a different breed of CD than prior recordings. We have performed some great shows and shared the stage with some good friends again and put a stamp in the bay area scene as a band that has fun, shows a work ethic that resembles an athlete, and always knows that we are here doing what we do for all of YOU.

"We feel blessed to be able to do this with all of you. Luckily the new CD was released towards the end of the year so we still have a lot of great memories to create and share with all of you in the months ahead. In 2009 Taunted was also blessed with the addition of new guitarist Matt Gower and bassist Pete Aguilar. They have brought the exact sound that works with Henry, Joey and Jacques. The table is set for us to have one hell of a ride! The 'BLEEDING BLACK' journey has just begun so look for more local shows, festivals, and TAUNTED's first tour ever to commence in 2010! We have already begin preliminary song writing for our next CD and we plan to have another new CD released by the end of 2010! The future is bright and we look forward to seeing and meeting all of you in the year ahead. THANK ALL OF YOU that have listened, bought, shared, supported, written about and spun the disc on radio. STAY METAL! KEEP IT KILLER! AND LETS ALL BLEED BLACK IN 2010!"
