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...

 

XANIMA..'INSIDE WARRIOR'

(Lion Music) Reviewed 1st June 2009

Imagine Evanescence mixed with Enigma goes Kate Bush.....enter: X Anima. The band's nucleus is Pelle Händén who handles keyboards, programming, and is the composer - the female voice is provided by Jade Ell, who is also involved with the lyrics, piano and all vocal arrangements. We have here beautiful melodies, perfect grooves and excellent sound design. It's all a creative combination of pop-rock-electronica with subtle doses of symphonica. It's dark, light, fantasy, heaven and hell... and all that makes up 'Inside warrior', Xanima's debut release. 'The Deeds and the Damage' gets proceedings underway, and from this track alone, one can tell that this isn't your traditional rock or metal fare. But so what, I like it! 'Caged' is pretty cool too, while a couple of my faves on the album so happen to be the bouncy 'Born Into This Skin' and the equally bouncy 'The Essence Of Being'. Other cool songs on this record include 'Soaring' and the awesome and atmospheric title track. Lion Music (well done Lars) has hit on a winner here, that exibits crossover potential - even in the UK market. I like this very much and although not traditional rock or metal, for anybody who is open minded with their music, or is most certainly into the above mentioned acts and similar, give it a try, you will not be disappointed. A cool record! 9/10 (Reviewed by Dave)

XANIMA..'INSIDE WARRIOR'

 I have to admit that I was a bit taken aback when I first started listening to the CD, but it only took me until about halfway through the second song to realize that this is really cool. The above mentioned comparisons are pretty accurate, but the band adds their own groove and vibe to the material that is presented here. The rock solid groove of the opener The Deed and the Damage sets things in motion on the right foot. It's a bit of a subdued track, but it is a good song and the high point are definitely
the smooth vocal delivery of Jade Ell. Caged is next and it has a pop feel to it, with a harder edge - I could really see this coming out as a single, it has a definite up-tempo feel to it and this was one of the highlights for me. Poltergeist keeps things going and there is a dark vibe that goes with the song. Other highlights include In The Lens mSoaring The Essence of Being and
Exodus.Xanima includes some really great vocal harmonies throughout Inside Warrior The vocals of  Jade Ell are very strong and at times she reminds me a bit of Shirley Manson of Garbage. Xanima are a band that came as a bit of a shock to me (in a positive way). Overall, Inside Warrior is a very impressive debut that is quite different from many the current crop of female fronted metal bands. The band are reportedly working on album number 2, it should be interesting to follow the progression of this promising new band. A solid debut.
