Malik / Bio

Malik is a hard hitting rock band from SLC, Utah. Their style on and off stage beats with a vintage strength unmatched by any modern day music. Malik lives and breathes the roots of rock and embraces that power to a full step above anything in the area. Watch out for these guys, they're a freight train that just started rolling

It all started with drummer Toren Wallengren and Vocalist/Guitarist Oskar Buie. They have been playing in bands together since their 7th grade year. Now in the middle of high school, these guys have written countless songs together. They got their start in the metal scene, seeing that's what everybody else was doing. After holding their own in that scene for a year or two, they both decided they weren't well suited for the style. Right after deciding to make the big switch, these guys boldly entered a statewide contest to determine who would open for 30 Seconds to Mars when they came through town. Malik submitted their music, and it was chosen personally by radio staff, venue staff, and the members of 30 Seconds to Mars. They won the contest beating out over 80 bands who were all just as eager to enter and win. Since then, Malik has been constantly writing, recording, and jamming to fine tune the sound of the music. Their goal is to have a sound that's well liked by the older generations who are into classic rock, such as Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, and Van Halen, and mix it with a modern day touch to really appeal to modern day audiences
