Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Omnia Malis Est is a one man band studio project created from the mind of Uruk-Hai (founder and mastermind), in Lucania (Italy) december 2006.
Ideas and arrangements were conceived between 2004 and 2006 when “La Rivolta Delle Stelle” came out, self produced demo of raw black metal with some electronic inserts.
Later in 2007, was published “Fides” first EP edited from "Il Male Prod." web label in the hands of Porz (Malnàtt).
Omnia Malis Est stops for 6 years where Uruk-Hai focuses on various projects and bands: guitarist for NEFERTUM with the album “Revered Lames” with whom shared the stage with the best metal bands outside. Guitarist for MODUS DELICTI, grind brutal death metal band from Milano with members from Septycal Gorge, Vomit The Soul ecc. Guitarist for Infernal Angel (italian black metal act). Singer in STEFANO ZANI'S PROJECT thrash death metal band from Brescia with members from Thetra, Endless Pain, Illogicist, Cadaveric Crematorium and in the end, a new one man studio project born with the name A TREE (rock depressive black metal) out with the album Fn-2+Fn-1=Fn.
After achieving lot of experience and skills, in Febrauary 2014 the project OMNIA MALIS EST come back with the intent to black metal in the best way. Then signed with the japanese Hidden Marly records for the first full lenght VUTELIU.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Omnia Malis Est, in 2015, plays WARLIKE BLACK METAL: epic, melodic, extreme black metal without compromises. About the influences i would say: Spite Extreme Wing, Mork Gryining, Malnatt.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Because its METAL in the best way. Impressive, full of pathos, well producted and performed. Nothing is left to chance. If you need power and melody in an epic melodic black metal sound: Omnia Malis Est first album VITELIU is the best choice
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
First demo cd was released in 2005 (La Rivolta Delle Stelle) and an EP named FIDES was released in 2006, received well by public and media. But those are very old pieces, first full lenght VITELIU out in 2015 its totally different, extremely professional, it came out after a long period of maturity in which I got to do a lot of experience in various bands.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Omnia Malis Est is a one man studio project, no live performances.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Omnia Malis Est focuses on historic themese, the whole last (and first) full album VITELIU its about Samintes. VITELIU is an historical reconstruction of the Samnium’s tribes in the south of Italy, lands that gave birth to brave fighters and fearless soldiers.
A reflection on the will of annihilation sets from Rome to his greatest and most feared enemies: Samnites.
An album that redeems centuries of struggles against Rome's expansion attempts. Behind VITELIU, behind the whole Omnia Malis Est project, there’s a single person, with the help of professional musicias (Davide BrutalDave Billia of Antropofagus, Septycal Gorge, Hour Of Penance, Putridity) , Gabriele Gramaglia (Summit, Thy Solace) and they did an awesome work.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
There are lot of plans, after first official lyric video, we are making a drumcam video of our talentuous drummer, then another video for VITELIU promotion and in the year 2015 VITELIU will be released by Hidden Marly rec. distribuited in Europe and Japan, so check it out!
