Evanescence mixed with Enigma goes Kate Bush.....enter: XANIMA.
Anima is new original music, with beautiful melodies, perfect
grooves and excellent sound design. It's all a creative combination
of pop-rockelectronica with elements of symphonic mixes. It's
dark, light, fantasy, heaven and hell...
does a band go about creating new music? This question should
be asked of X Anima, for on their new album they have created,
not only new and innovative music - but also keenly individual
and inspired songs. The lyrics tell stories of mysteries in
modern times, such as the mind of a serial killer, the phenomenon
of poltergeist, Jonestown - the power of the spirit and mind
and the life after death. By uniting a voice which is ranging
from an airy sound to rocky -sometimes almost operatic - combined
with electronic synthesizers, a mean electric guitar with
heavy riffs and ethnic sounds - X Anima has created music
- which in their own classification could be called art rock/electronic.
Anima started as a project in February 2007. At first it was
created and only existing in cyber space - but later on it
turned into a live band with excellent musicians turning the
story of X Anima live.
