The band announced: "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." The band also added: "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!"
While hard rock is the foundation of Bad As, the depths of the 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 album with More information to be revealed soon.
