The members of the quintet Anima Mundi must have heard a lot of Rush, Yes, Starcastle, Camel and Kansas during their musical socialization. Symphonic Rock forms the core of their very own music. The fact that they come from Cuba never shines through in their sound art. Only the singer with his accustomed pronunciation of English notices that the band does not come from the Anglo-American culture. But otherwise? Prog at it's best, which Anima Mundi present on their fourth studio album. Since the also glorious predecessor "The Way" from 2010 a lot has happened with the band. Emmanuel Pirko-Farrath got into the ring for the former singer Carlos Sosa, who, according to the current sound of the five-piece, often sounds like a fairy tale and in some places even lovely, thus sounding softer than his predecessor. But please don't misunderstand: Anima Mundi don't play kitsch. Instead, their music is full of virtuosity and dynamism, which they already proved in the summer at the Night Of The Prog and at the Burg-Herzberg-Festival, from which they emerged as a great discovery. A high of globalization!
