Biography

MALA IN SE is a frenzied detour from the normal world of rock and metal. The band de-constructs concepts from a large cache of musical genres, yet they’ve concocted a truly unique sound and vision.

The foundation of Mala In Se’s sound begins with the (un)usual guitar, bass, and drums. Then it becomes dense with layers of samples, feedback, and auxiliary percussion. Lastly, lyrics are delivered in numerous, unsettling ways via shrieks and yells.

Mala In Se’s self-titled, debut album (2010) shifts from enormous amounts of physical energy to teardrops of minimalist soundscapes. Tempos go from blindingly-fast to a sluggish crawl before you can even count the meter. This band is a genre-bursting amalgamation of post-punk/thrash/avant-garde/nosie/math-rock and new age, with a little nod to free jazz in a live setting. What holds it all together is confident musicianship that allows the listener to just accept what is happening. Nothing should be over-analyzed.

The term ‘Mala In Se’ means “wrongs in themselves; acts morally wrong; offenses against conscience.” It is a concept that spews from the band’s lyrics which focus on subjects such as animal testing/animal cruelty, back-room deals and government conspiracies, environmentalism and self-awareness…
