Dies Mali~ "cursed days"
cc.1400, from Anglo-Fr. dismal, from L. dies "days" + mali "bad". Through the Middle Ages, calendars marked two days of each month as unlucky, supposedly based on the ancient calculations of Egyptian astrologers. Modern sense of "gloomy, dreary" first recorded in Eng. 1593 in reference to sounds.

Thundering yet accessible, dark yet inspiring; somehow dichotomy be damned DIES MALI makes it work.

Evolving around the core unit of frontman Zoran and drummer Mark, DIES MALI underwent the standard changes that every developing band works through: a shifting lineup, shuffling band names, and a growing sense of confidence and capability.

After hearing Zoran – a classically trained pianist – play at a party, Mark approached him about starting a project. The young band put together its first demo, and realized it was something that could stick. However, finding the other pieces to the puzzle held DIES MALI back from putting together a true full-length debut – until now.

After spending a number of years in Chicago’s fertile local scene, the band is ready to spread its wings nationally with its debut, "Mourning Portraits".

Roughly half the songs on "Mourning Portraits" have been rattling around Zoran''s head for quite a while, with the remainder of the tunes being new pieces. However, even the old dogs are being taught new tricks by the finalization of DIES MALI''s lineup, with the most recent additions - native New Yorker S.L.A.V.E. and Chicago rocker Bane - revitalizing and adding twists to the earlier material.

While the band has a clearly industrial aesthetic and has performed at gothic festivals in the Midwest, the band prefers to classify itself more as ‘dark synth rock’ than anything else, and goes the distance to make sure the music also has an element of humanity to it.

Musically, if it’s hard and heavy, there’s something DIES MALI has drawn from it. The band has earned comparisons to not only acts like Orgy and Rob Zombie, but gothic and electronic pioneers such as Bauhaus, Gary Neuman, and Killing Joke.

“I’ve always been a fan of darker stuff, from older bands like Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and Soundgarden to more modern ones like Marilyn Manson, Korn, and Type O Negative,” Zoran says. “Anything that’s heavy and has a dark feel, I’ve always been attracted to.”

With its sights set on 2008, DIES MALI is ready to prove its mettle and step things up a notch – actually, a bunch of notches. The band is road-ready, and is looking forward to presenting the material from "Mourning Portraits" to the masses.

The days of disaster are coming, and they’ve never sounded quite like this!
