Anthony DeMore was the founder and lead vocalist of the hip-hop, metal band "A-D." With lyrics driven by socio-politically and environmentally charged themes, the band found a new level of heaviness when David Tarica was added in 1989. In the 1990s, with Tarica's monster guitar riffs and DeMore's potent raps, the band quickly became a Bard favorite. After graduation, the AD lineup changed and they moved to New York City securing a record deal with Rage Records. They toured all over Europe and recorded two CD’s before splitting up in the late 90s. According to David Tarica, "Crazy World, Deadzone, World on Fire, Whole House Panicked, and True Side were all written at Bard, but were significantly reworked for the album." He adds "the songs that best represent our time at Bard are maybe Deadzone or Whole House Panicked" (which are featured below). [Email 2009]
