It’s not an easy task for new bands to be easily recognised thanks to a specific sound. Find your identity is probably the hardest task for musicians and for some it takes even years of experience and experiments. The fact that CORANIMA formed only three months ago and already have a powerful and unique sound is the clear sign that we discovered a band with incredible potential and everything it takes to stick around for a long time in the scene and in the hearts of many. After receiving airplay from many radio stations, more than 60 features on different Spotify Playlists and a constantly growing fanbase, the trio released a brand new song called “VIVAMUS”, an empowering nu-metal track twisted with modern elements and characteristic sounds of those legendary bands such as Linkin Park and Breaking Benjamin that made us fall in love in the first place with this energetic genre. Hard workers, talented and with the perfect mindset to become a big act in the future. Absolutely fantastic.
