Imagine Evanescence mixed with Enigma goes Kate Bush.....enter: XANIMA.
X 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...
How 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.
X 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.
