Well, we are a band from Quebec city born in the ashes of Bombnation. we know each other for many years now, got lots of bands together and we wanted to play some death metal,so we start Badass Commander!
2.How would you describe your musical sound?
I would say old school death metal with thrash and grindcore influences!
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Violent things, feeling and badasses things!
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Badass Commander'?
We say in rehearsals that our riffs go to be badass, so we thought we needed a badass name and one day Jack asked me hey commander press record while we were recording new riffs and the name came out after a gool laugh!
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We didn't played any shows yet with that band, so it's kinda hard to describe it yet but we are 3 guys from various bands that we played together, so the chemistry is already there. Expect some drunk guys playing old school riffs!
6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
Record launch in Quebec city in may, planning to play around the province of Quebec and eastern Ontario someday.
7.The mini album was released on PRC music, are you happy with the support they have given you so far?
Of course we are happy! I know Remi for a little more than 10 years, hard working man, at the begining we were planing doing a demo tape with this recording, when I sent some songs to Remi just to have is impression and he answered with a record deal! Remi released many of our previous bands (Bombnation, Striver, Mesrine, Fistfuck...) so we know what it's all about dealing with him!
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of old school death metal?
So far, we only have 2 songs on the internet, we have a few good feedbacks from friends and a few people, pretty shure things will be better when the E.P will be out!
9.When can we expect a full length and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
A full lenght album is in the works, we have 4 or 5 songs written. It will be in the same veins as the E.P with maybe a little more NYC influence.

The early death metal bands like Grave, Entombed, Dismember, ect. Early grindcore like Repulsion and Crust like Disrupt and Extreme Noise Terror!
