Oh my, but art is long and our life is fleeting" (Goethe`s Faust)
TAINTED is inspired by the classic tale of Faust,
the man who drives himself to damnation in his search for true enlightenment.
TAINTED is dedicated to all the false prophets of this world..

TAINTED is darker and more electronic than the acclaimed debut album 7summers7winters (2013). The album is shaped like a German Song Cycle and draws inspiration from the Franz Schubert lied «Gretchen am Spinnrade, in which he portrays the mental and emotional turmoil
of one of the characters.

The album spans multiple genres, combining art rock with classical, pop, electronica and just a touch of the blues.
