Behind the project

The Mad Duck project was born in 2016 with the purpose of recording the material composed in fifteen years by Stefano, bassist, and Luca, guitarist.

The only fixed collaborator of the band is Davide Merletto, ex-former professional singer of Daedalus, Planethard and now with Strive.

Tyger watches the collaboration of Francesco La Rosa, drummer of M-pire of Evil, Extrema, MEGANOID and Thought Machine.

In November 2017 came the first record, Braggart stories and dark poems, in which were selected the pieces closest to the sound of the metal scene in the eighties and early nineties.
