TNA— we all know what the acronym stands for. Southern sleaze-metal mavericks from Memphis, Tennessee, started out as a cover band, but soon turned their collective attention to writing originals, influenced by everyone from Kiss and Aerosmith to Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. TNA focused on delivering heavy hitting riffs that got straight to the point like a sniper’s bullet. No time for bullshit, no time for fluff. TNA wanted to rock, they wanted to groove; they wanted to prove they weren’t posers, so they tore into every dirty dive and club throughout the continental United States with relentless energy, fine-tuning their chops until they were, in the colorful words of bassist Michael Gumm, “so tight you couldn’t drive a toothpick up our ass with a twenty pound sledgehammer.” TNA features Guitarist Wayne Swinny for major label act SALIVA and was recorded, mixed, and produced at the legendary Ardent Studios which has recorded the likes of Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, George Thorogood, The Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan, Stevie Ray Vaughan, among many others.
