BAD AS Join Sliptrick Records
While ‘hard rock’ is the foundation of BAD As (formerly BADASS), the depths of their music expresses a crossover of genres including metal and prog, taking influence from legends such as Metallica, Megadeth, Whitesnake and DIO. With little more than a year’s worth of action, the members themselves have history and are no strangers to the music world.
The first line up teamed up in 2016 to create an outstanding new metal band, originally called BADASS (and for a short period called Ardityon). Within their first year, the band unleashed the debut album More Pain, More Gain and through their relentless promotion and fast-growing fan-base, they caught the attention of journalists and promoters.
In April 2018, original member Alberto Rigoni took the tough decision to find new members for the group and to start writing a new album and in May of that year, the young and very talented singer Mattia Martin and drummer Marino De Bortoli joined the band with Alessio “Lex” Tricarico remaining on guitar. On November 30th 2018, BAD As released their second album Midnight Curse which received extremely positive feedback from the worldwide press. The band promoted the album with a tour across Europe.
