The machine gun rap flow of the band’s two MC’s can be heard on all tracks, rapping in English on a variety of topics, from pressing social issues to more light hearted ones, such as graffiti and touring. Album is mastered by Tony Lindgren of Fascination Studios, Sweden, known for working with Metal and Pop-Music giants from Amon Amarth and Kreator to Billie Eilish.
Boltcutter Vlad: ““Bad Accent” in the record’s name stands for what we see as an internationally recognizable dialect shared by those not afraid to expand their horizons, travel to new places, meet new people so they can get things done, survive, stand for the right things. A lot of times the society unjustly labels them as “undesirable elements” or “suspicious foreigners”. This album is a collection of Anthems for the Bad Accent brother and sisterhood to bang their heads to.”
Ski Mask G: “On the new album we are combining the sound of previous two records while adding new vibes. We are bringing back punk and hardcore beats with beloved “heavy metal guitars”, but many tracks will still retain heavy electronic elements, and all of that with a twisted flavor of Moscow Death Brigade. We call it Circle Pit Hip-Hop.” The headlining Tour in support of “BAD ACCENT ANTHEMS” album release starts in France on April 9th and includes 34 dates across Europe, UK and US including Berlin, London, Paris, New York and Las Vegas. MDB will hit many famous venues such as Le Gibus in Paris and Festsaal Kreuzberg in Berlin. After the Tour the band opens the summer Festival season and will play such famous festivals as Roskilde (DK), EXIT (SRB), HELLFEST (FR), FUSION (DE) and many more.
