Thundering yet accessible, dark yet inspiring; somehow dichotomy be damned Dies Mali makes it work.
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.
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.
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.
