Tarnished existed from 2003 to 2005 with Paul Wolfe, Rob Smiley, Shon Sampson, and Buzz Brown. Tarnished was formed from the ashes of Dazed, a Kitsap County metal band.
We had a heavy Sabbath / Soundgarden type groove metal sound. Rob Smiley's vocals had some incredible power, and that really complemented the solid wall of guitar, bass and drums being laid down by the band.
We did a four song demo, got some airplay on European radio, and some airplay on American internet radio.
Personal life issues brought the band to an untimely end, but Paul and Buzz are still hoping to revive the beast with some new players.
Paul is currently playing with Stabbingback, based out of Marysville. Buzz is restoring classic muscle cars and doing custom guitar and drum painting. Rob and Shon are doing life as usual
