John Jeff Touch, the band’s singer, shared the first studio update:
“BAD AS new album “Fight The Demons” was born when John Jeff Touch (rock & metal singing expert/ songwriter/producer) joined the band in 2022.
Alberto Rigoni and the rest of the band already had new musical ideas. John and Alberto decided to create an album more radio friendly that will show all their technical skills in a more commercial way, without losing the power and the aggressiveness of the previous ones.
“Fight The Demons” is a combination of classic rock / prog and new metal. This album has powerful, aggressive and mellow vocals combined with modern heavy riffs, powerful drum and bass rhythms.
A really powerful album made up of 11 exceptional songs. Bad As can’t wait to perform it live to their audience!
Fans of Dio/ Metallica / Megadeth/ Devin Townsend/ Whitesnake shouldn’t miss it!”
Alberto Rigoni adds, “We are very happy with the production and with the songs, for us they are killer!”
More details TBA, stay tuned!
More on BAD AS
While ‘Hard Rock’ is the foundation of BAD AS (formerly BADASS) works, 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 as BAD AS, the members themselves are world renowned, and are no strangers to the music world. Read on to delve into the intricacies and formation of BAD AS..
Well-known rock vocalist Titta Tani (Takayoshi Ohmura, ex DGM, CS’s Goblin), metal bassist Alberto Rigoni (solo artist, Vivaldi Metal Project, TwinSpirits), guitarist Alessio “Lex” Tricarico (HorsePowerOverload, Four Roxx Down) and amazingly talented drummer Denis “Denzy” Novello in 2016 teamed up to create this outstanding new metal band, originally called BADASS (and for a short period called Ardityon). Who within the first year of establishment have unleashed their debut album ‘More Pain, More Gain’ and through their relentless promotion and fast-growing fanbase, they’ve caught the attention of journalists and promoters..
In February 2018 with a second album ready to be released the band decided to split. In April 2018 Alberto Rigoni took the decision to find new members (except for guitarist Lex) and to start writing a new album. In May young and very talented singer Mattia Martin and drummer Marino De Bortoli joined the band and “Midnight Course” and “Crucified Society” have been released worldwide. Moreover the band supported legendary guitarist Vinnie Moore tour around Europe in Autumn 2018.
In 2022 singer Mattia Martin left the band and Greek singer John Jeff Touch joined (winner of various European Artists Awards and collaborations with bands such as Deep Purple, VISION, S.I.N., COSMICRAY, Sanny X etc). Fourth album is now going to be produced and it’s to be released in 2023 along with promotional live shows in Europe.
