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 the band’s sound is the (un)usual combination of guitar, bass, and drums, then it becomes dense with layers of samples, feedback, and auxiliary percussion. The band’s playing often 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.

Mala in se: wrongs in themselves; acts morally wrong; offenses against conscience.
