Feeling a bit camera shy


Malignant Theory was first founded in the late summer of 2010. Three of the members, Joey Hartman, Dianne Hartman, and Steve Goobie, had been working vigorously together for almost two years, under another band. After playing countless shows and recording an E.P, this band would be derailed due to band conflict.

Joey, Di and Steve had devolped a strong drive together as musicians that would
not all...ow this unfortunate turn of events to stop their passion for music. The three decided it would be best to move on and create a whole new breed of monster.

The first person they contacted was an old friend of Di and Joey's, Jamie Santo Domingo. Joey and Di had worked with him in the past and knew his creativity and drive were exactly what they needed. They didn't, however, expect Jamie to come prepared with an arsenal of vicious and slammy riffs.

The four worked together endlessly over the next few weeks, Jamie on guitar, Di on drums, Goobie on guitar and Joey on vocals, to come up with a few songs and a band name. By this point Goobie decide to try something different, so he called up a friend of his, Shawn Daniels. He brought Shawn in to check out a jam, as a guitarist which he had had previous experience with and moved to fill the open bassist slot. Shawn quickly learned the two songs in the first practice, while Goobie discovered his apparent calling on bass. This would result in: Malignant Theory.

Determined to hit the groud running, Malignant Theory got together almost every day in the next two and a half months. The progress was amazing as these five musicians quickly learnt they had probably the most driven group they would ever work with. The ideas seemed to flow through each member with ease and the outcome was far better than expected.

Only three months in and the band was ready to play. With six songs complete and more on the way, Malignant Theory was defining a name and a sound not familiar to the local scene, but influenced by every end of the musical spectrum. Malignant Theory's music is aimed to reveal the monster in all of us, and help harness the strength to over come all our struggles.

2011 looks to be a promising year for the MT camp, are you ready?
