Heavy Metal Band
Malo De Dentro was formed in 2005 in the Phoenix, Arizona area by guitarist Chuck
Simoes and drummer Sixkiller. After recruiting Ben Litke as Malo's front man, they
began to implement their musical ideas and sound. With the addition of guitarist
Jerry Loomis and bassist David Chaney, the band was able to achieve their ultimate
goal of a tight, heavy sound with a touch of a tribal backbone that brings out the
"Malo" in them all.
The Rebirth Of Metal
In 2007, the band took a short hiatus to work on other projects. Sixkiller and Chuck
worked on a blues-based rock project, while Ben and Jerry joined up with Burn the
Herd. In November of 2007, Sixkiller and Chuck had decided to head back to the studio
and revive Malo, along with Dave back on bass. In 2008, Joe Bertucci was added on
vocals, taking Malo to a whole new level. Joe's vocal style is a perfect match to
the Malo sound.
In late 2009, the band decided to take another short hiatus to focus on their full
time lives and get their respective "houses" in order. After 6 months though, Joe,
Chuck, and Sixkiller decided to fire things back up; picking up The Phantom
on Bass. Malo in 2010 will bring new material, working with even darker, deeper
sounds and more creative juices will flow once again.
The new "Evil Within" CD is available now, and features 9 songs from Malo De Dentro.
New pictures will be coming soon. Here are the members of Malo De Dentro:
- Joe - Vocals
- Chuck - Guitar
- Jerry - Guitar
- Phantom - Bass
- Sixkiller - Drums
The name Malo De Dentro comes from the Spanish meaning of "Evil Within". Listen
and you will hear why it is the perfect name.
