Disco. Metal. House. These three words form the mission statement adopted by the dance powerhouse experience that is Bad Dagger. Bursting onto the scene in 2012, Bad Dagger began with Cameron Reel (music production, synths and bass guitar) and Eddie Roodvoets (drums, samples, and triggers). This duo stunned and entertained audiences with there unique brand of Disco/Metal/House or Electrosexymetal, as their style has been called. Extremely danceable, this act has a tendency to switch gears without warning. This makes it possible to touch on a wide array of genres in each set. Bad Dagger makes use of this versatility with relentless passion and energy.
In the fall of 2016, Brice Jones (guitar) was added to the lineup. Without knowing how a guitar player would fit in with their style, Cameron and Eddie were immediately floored by the element that Brice brings to the music. Brice’s instincts and artistic taste were spot on right away, adding a crucial ands melodic balance to the band. Although they have similar influences in music, each member has a unique taste and sensibility. This helps add to the evolution of the unique brand of music they have developed.
Bad Dagger – The world’s original innovators of and only true source for pure, high-grade Electrosexymetal
