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. Some of the grooves are very tribal/ethnic. There are many fun poly-rhythmic games between the instruments. 2008 and 2009 were inactive years for Bad Salad. They had an album's worth of material, but the band was incomplete as a trio.
They knew a keyboard player would have to join the team, aswell as a vocalist later on. Unable to find the right guys to complete the lineup at the time, and having other important things to do stacking up, the band was put on hold. In January 2010 Caco, Felipe and Thiago resumed BS activities. 2 years down the line, more mature and educated, they were set on finally making an album, with or without a keyboardist. They scheduled writing sessions everyday, and revised every single song from the 2007 sessions, making sure they were up to their new (ever evolving) standards. After unofficially talking about the idea for many months, César Zolhof (keyboards) joined the band full time in March 2010, completing the band's instrumental lineup. In the period of April 20th to June 20th 2010 an online Vocal Tryout was held to search for the final missing member of the band. A section of one of our unreleased songs, which goes by the working title #8 "Susto" (later to be named 'Crowded Sky'), was put on youtube in order to promote the tryout internationally.
Dozens of entries were received and reviewed by the band, some of them quite worthy. In September 2010 the band happily announced the "winner", Mr. Denis Oliveira. Read more on Last.fm.
