Experimental metal band MINIPONY presents their new album AJNA. The second production of the Ecuadorian group in which a sound and compositional evolution is distinguished after the release of their debut album. An organic and engaging sound accompanied by a deep excursion in the melodic and rhythmic aspects with insane vocals, the result is already one of the most important productions in the South American metal circuit. Songs that lyrically touch on themes of respect for animal life and human unconsciousness represented in cynical metaphors, result in a deep and direct concept. Recorded at Joe Duplantier's Silver Cord Studio, mixed by Jamie Uertz and mastered by Johann Meyer (Gojira). The group was formed by Amadeus Galiano (electric guitars), Emilia Moncayo (voice/sampling) and Filippo Brandrimarte (drums) in Bologna, Italy, in 2012 maintaining this lineup until the return to Ecuador. In December 2016, the band was joined by Carlos Sánchez, the actual drummer of the band, in 2017. It is an experimental metal project influenced by math, breakcore and Latin music that mixes polyrhythmic structures with minimalist guitar riffs. Emilia and Amadeus initially created the band with the idea of making a thrash metal band, however, it evolved into a somewhat different style. Complicated grooves as well as aggressive and suddenly demented vocal lines resulted in an exposition of Latin American rhythms in their most brutal form. The project is essentially a mixture between thrash, djent and experimental metal. In 2017 the band signed with the record label Subsound Records and released their first album Imago.
