Pete Mac – Lead singer, guitarist and songwriter of Irish based Alternative Rock/Grunge outfit Paradox. Not your typical Singer/Songwriter Pete Mac has branched out from his band Paradox and taken his Alternative/ Grunge melodies and musical frustrations to his acoustic guitar.

The results can be heard on a self-produced solo album titled 'In Limbo'.

'In Limbo' is a collection of songs that date back as far as 2003, 14 songs written at different times, in different places over the space of 5 years. All music and lyrics are composed by Pete Mac. All instruments (Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Tambourine) are performed by Pete and he's also responsible for the production of the album. Tracks 5, 13 and 14 were recorded June 2005, Cork, Ireland on an analog 4-track home studio live. Track 9 is taken from Paradox album 'Sacred', recorded January 2004 at BPM Studios, Cork, Ireland. All other tracks were recorded throughout 2008 in Berlin, Germany. 'In Limbo' is an album of many moods, emotions, each song bringing across a different vibe. From the political outbursts of 'Corporate Pollution' to the atmospheric ambience of 'In Limbo', followed by the melodic waves of 'No Words' to the dischordent chops of 'Bury the World', 'In Limbo' takes a different musical direction from any previous Paradox sound.

Track Name: Pete Mac - Corporate Pollution (Solo)
Well it's a sweet system with no solution,
Breathe in Corporate Pollution.

Standardise what is all the same
Analyse what is all in vain
Paralyzed by authority
A pretty picture society where do I stand?

But it's a sweet system with no solution,
Breathe in Corporate Pollution,
A mind prison of self illusion,
Breathe in Corporate Pollution.

Advertise what we must obtain,
Compromise for financial gain,
Patronise the minority,
A pretty picture society we're doomed,

Your government swore your patriotic scars,
I ask what for?
Your government wore your patriotic stars,
I ask what for?
What for?

Interest rates up 20 per cent
(corporation world domination)
Defecating dollar bills
(corporation world domination)
We must rage war for your security
(operation scare the nation)
Crossfire naive society
(corporation world domination)

Starve the System!!
