talian metal group BAD As re-enter the ring with their 3rd full-length album Crucified Society released worldwide on March 17th via Sliptrick Records. With their young, fascinating capable talent on vocals, Dio-alike Mattia Martin, deliver an immense well working mix out of the genre’s proved, traditional elements with a highly crispy, decent modern touch!
Here’s what the band had to say about the release; “We have tried to produce something new in our ears and, we hope, numerous listeners. The genre of the band has had some changes compared to past albums. The band started their musical career inspired by the trash metal with names like Metallica and Megadeth, passing through more melodic and alternative genres such as Alter Bridge and Disturbed and mixing it all with something more sparkling like the Whitesnake and Queensryche. With this album we are trying to move forward with a step that we hope is worth being recognized and listened to. During the production a lot of things happened inside the band, both good and bad personal things for everyone. So many of our reflections have been expressed and we fully see ourselves within these passages. We are happy with our songs and whether emotional or pissed, we write about everything we live and feel around us.
Metal is an iconically strong genre, but to write it you don’t just have to be angry, on the contrary, personally I think we have to “survive” a little or suffer and then take out something really powerful in the music! Music is not formed only by musicians and genres, but from personal lives, happy and sad occasions, this is what gives it it’s real merit.
The cover depicts a future society that we can define as cyberpunk, those who show off do it big! And as you can see from the image itself, the people underneath the cross don’t try to save the crucifix, but cover it with videos and photos to be used to get noticed .. also to say “but look at that kind of jerk” but the concept final is visibility. It fully epitomizes what the song that gives the title to the album says.”
