Biography

Brasilia - Brazil (2007 – present)

The band started in May 2007 in Brasilia - Brazil with the formation of 2 guitarists (Thiago Campos and Marcelo Seabra), a bassist (Felipe Campos), and a drummer (Caco Gonçalves). The group had no idea what would come out of the blend, and made no effort to pre-establish any specific genre to follow. The goal was to meet inside a rehearsal space, jam, and write original songs with everyone’s ideas, hence the name “Bad Salad”.

As the first song started being developed the band found itself marching towards the heavier side of rock, which wasn’t really a big surprise considering each member’s influences.

Shortly after a draft of the first song was done, guitarist Marcelo Seabra left the band for personal reasons.

Caco, Felipe and Thiago continued on as a power trio, and for the following months of 2007 wrote many songs over the weekends.

By this time it was safe to say Bad Salad was a Progressive Metal band. Long songs, heavy riffs, odd arrangements and time signatures, instrumental sections, and all that good stuff.

The term progressive metal is being thrown around like crazy these days. So how to separate Bad Salad’s sound from the millions of bands who define themselves as being part of this mainstream unfriendly yet increasingly growing genre of rock music? Well, for starters, Bad Salad’s music has strong personality. Each song is unique, and scars you with it’s identity. They’re like olives, or anchovies, for example. Like it or not, you will know what it is when you taste it! Another quality that stands out in the band’s sound lies in the rhythmic section. Bad Salad’s music is very hammering! At times it almost feels like a full-throttle construction of a building.

    Definitely more than just DT worship! Sure, the vocalists voice haunts of James LaBrie, and there's a few of those moments where the keys and guitars run up and down DT style arpeggios and licks, but these guys have more than enough of their own style to promote.

    basically Dream Theater worship, although with a vocalist who actually has some hair on his balls

    quite the headstart for the former split screen tribute guys. debut is already more fun than a lot of recent genre releases by more established bands. its only audible "weakness" are moments of very clear resemblance to their idols (which shouldn't be a problem for people who like prog metal gods too). also, bad salad is a great bandname to shout at concerts. kudos to them!

    Incredible debut! This is so inventive; I think it's rewiring my brain little by little as I listen along. The end of Crowded Sky is mind-blowing.
