Tempered Mental's first offering, 2004's 'Honestly', introduced the band as a talented young outfit with a bold progressive quality. The trio were received as an exciting exception in an era of derivative four-piece nostalgia.
The trio's full-length debut 'The View From Here' three years later then claimed discerning pockets of a larger rock audience lost in the tidal wave of post-grunge and emo and tens of other what-have-you modern rock strains.
The second studio album 'Pax Automata' in 2012 saw the band emerge even more themselves and showcase a truly futurist intent. As the world around them grew harsher Tempered Mental's sound had only gotten grittier, and evolved even further into a self-mastery and autonomic sweetness designed to inspire.
With the upcoming album 'III' it has perhaps come time for Tempered Mental to endeavour to leave a lasting impression on devoted listeners and establish themselves in the hearts of rock believers everywhere.
