The Swedish progressive rock outfit Xanima featuring Jade Ell on vocals and Pelle Händén on keys — have released their second album Prototype: Homo Sapiensis — which describes the complex journey of a soul.
Xanima is a strong live act with a powerful stage performance, including dancers and actors adding to the live show experience.
Xanima create an exciting combination of pop, rock and electronica — with elements of the symphonic.
On the opening track “Mantra” the main voice is like a cool spineless waveform eel. It is slinking towards your bare heart.
Jade’s voice is so soft and so purring that you believe you are invited to play. But this is dangerous. Because she is painfully beautiful and an ice-cool killer.
The vocal fastens around your vulnerability — as the charming succubus takes her serpentine tail to lash out with a lethal sting.
Guitars create drama and apprehension. And the synth reaches into your mind to rip open your fears.
But it is the witch that you will fall for. She will beckon you into her world.
While she attracts the world’s evil, she will not be led astray! How about you?
