Badland

BandRockClassic Rock

Original songs with searing melodies and exquisite guitar work, bathed in wonderful keyboards and underpinned by a rhythm section that can truly be described as "powerhouse". From the ashes of eighties NWOBHM legends "Scorched Earth", augmented by Midlands musicians of the finest calibre, "Badland" have arrived just in time to re-ignite the dying embers of real rock music.

Biography

Badland fuses together the timeless talents of six great musicians to form a band playing original rock songs saturated with searing melodies and exquisite guitar work, bathed in wonderful keyboards and underpinned by a rhythm section that can truly be described as a powerhouse.

“I guess we're what you would describe as a classic rock band, if that doesn't sound too up ourselves! It's pretty much all our own compositions (with a couple of covers for the live show). Some of the numbers were written over twenty years ago, with others in the past few months since we came together as Badland.”

Personnel, starting from the foundations are Terry 'Drumdude' Boazman on drums; Roy 'Stackheel' Smith on bass guitar; ‘The Rodfather’ Rod Bloomer on keys; Dave ‘E’ Matthews on guitar and vocals; Martin ‘The Maestro’ Ratcliffe on lead guitar and the lacerating larynx of Dave Cooper on lead vocals.”

Unashamedly rooted in the tradition of the great UK rock bands of the 70’s & 80’s, but with a contemporary edge, Badland bring their own unique brand of music to your neighbourhood . . . make sure you're there to welcome them!
