Biography

Opus Däi (pronounced “die”) cultivates a rich and varied aural landscape that is as vast and epic as the bands history. The band creates a space where diverse sounds blend into a singular musical force. Driving and aggressive, yet gentle in spirit, there is an epic grace that stokes the fires burning brightly from within Opus Däi. Drawing on influences from Led Zeppelin and Jeff Buckley to Pink Floyd and The Mars Volta, Opus Däi weaves a broad musical tapestry, painting a picture with superlative musicianship and beautifully crafted songs. This is the hallmark of the newly formed, yet years in the making, Los Angeles based band.

After releasing a five-song EP entitled “Actum Procul” (recorded live at the Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood) Opus Däi quickly became a must-see live band with a diverse and loyal following, having played over 500 live shows and having shared the stage with System of a Down, Dredg, Linkin Park, Fair to Midland, The Apex Theory and Sevendust to name just a few.

Touring relentlessly for nearly 2 years in support of their debut LP “Tierra Tragame” the band finally returned home in fall of 2007, eager to work on new material. However due to rising tension between members and growing musical differences, the band parted ways with long time vocalist Chris Paul Basso and touring newbie Ryan Collier. Where this might appear as a major set back to some, Opus Däi quickly charged forward. In less then one year, Opus Däi not only rebuilt the band, they wrote an entire new set of material, recorded and released a new EP and toured the entire West Coast… Twice! - All within one years time!
