BAD AS Sign With ALPHA OMEGA Management, Announce New Line-Up!

ALPHA OMEGA Management has a huge pleasure to announce the signing of 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. Currently the band is composing a new BAD AS album. More information will be revealed soon.

Comments the band:
“We are proud to announce that our band BAD AS has just signed with the stunning management agency ALPHA OMEGA. We are both really excited about this collaboration. More news coming soon!”

ALPHA OMEGA Management adds:
“Just recently we had a pleasure to announce our long-time friend, Alberto Rigoni, as our new team member! And today our joy is double welcoming his versatile band BAD AS to our roster family! Their upcoming album is outstanding and will confirm the fact that BAD AS is here to stay!”

Furthermore, BAD AS have just recently announced their new singer and drummer, completing so the band’s line-up:

“We are proud to announce that our new singer will be the young (22 years old!) but really talented Mattia Martin, from Italy. Mattia started playing guitar at the age 7, being part of various cover bands in his region and starting already to give life to his voice in some bands. Then, at 20, he started taking vocal lessons and collaborating with various band such as NightDive. He also recorded choirs for band such as Temperance and Kalidia. His voice is inspired by singer such as Ronnie James Dio, Jorn and many others… melodic and aggressive at the same time.”

“We are glad to announce that Italian drummer Marino De Bortoli has joined the band and we are now ready to kick ass! Marino started learning drums at the age of 12 and he has more than 30 years of experience. Marino has played with several bands also touring around the world (for example in Russia and Ucraina with Le Basour). He is now currently working as session man, drum teacher and of course as BAD AS human drum machine!”
