The Anima Virus project was born in 1996, after the dissolution of the preceding band, â€The Vacuumâ€, in which Aurelio Gioia was singer and guitarist. The sound of the band was near to late seventies post-punk tradition :early Christian Death, Cure, Bauhaus.
Currently Anima Virus project enriches his sounds with electronic nuances close to latest Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp and to the electro-punk californian scene like (Vanishing,Sixteens...)
Anima Virus was born by the way of a sound research aimed at actualize and personalize the literary and philosophical topics of the ancient classic culture utilizing a musical electro-rock code which contains a marked attitude to introspective contents, and some themes concerning the social alienation. The hard and acid, but at the same time tuneful and charmed sound (thanks to a great evocative peculiarity) makes oneself clear in a powerful composition owing to its natural tendency to the electronic experimentation united to love for the Californian gothic-death-rock.
