FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Imagine a haunted jack-in-the-box filled with skeletal remains and pounding beats - combining the raw energy of electronic rock and alternative hip hop with the lyrical prowess of a serial killer in overdrive. Animositi’s experimental approach in blending multiple musical genres creates a distinctive sound - urban industrial.
“Grinding, sonically and lyrically, and even vocally. This is a sort of sound answer to the dark web. Shall we call it “urban industrial”?”
- Daniel Flores (Editor-in-chief for Rolling Stone Argentina)
Lost Angels, CA (November, 2023) - Emerging artist, ANIMOSITI, is set to challenge the retro music trend with a modern-day twist on the stagnant 90’s sound of current underground edm, hip-hop, metal, and electronicore acts. ANIMOSITI is the genre-defying artist you shouldn’t miss.
ANIMOSITI was formed during lockdown. With the world in turmoil, ANIMOSITI found solace in a sonic journey that is reflective of distress, wonderment, death and cinematic, subjective art.
After releasing a few epigrammatic and anomalous rock-influenced dance singles, ANIMOSITI unleashed a series of bizarre interweb videos for various other tracks tangentially.
Never labeling himself a “musician”, Animo$iti prefers the term “Unfortunate Artistic Entertainer”.
In October, 2023, ANIMOSITI released the Hallowed Mix of the urban-industrial bad guy anthem Lead Villain, from the EP VILLAIN, along with it’s accompanying, ground-breaking horror-themed music video (https://youtu.be/WVtlbT6V4kY?si=eDc1vAeLVmDerwr9 ).
“It’s an industrious track with a pertinacious sound and style and a sui generis quality.”
- Chris Redjam (AW Radio)
October also saw the global release of ANIMOSITI’s missing first full-length album, Sound of the Beast: Evolutions Book 1.
In November, 2023, ANIMOSITI released a cover of an Ol’ Dirty Bastard/Wu-Tang Clan throwback - Shimmy Shimmy Ya.
In 2024, ANIMOSITI looks to unleash a film inspired by the track, When I Get You…
ANIMOSITI’s sonic landscape blends elements of Electronic Rock, Industrial, Hip-Hop, Underground Sample Culture and more to create a unique post-genre sound that is both electrifying and enigmatic.
With concept-driven, thought-provoking lyrics combined with disturbing visuals and an overdrive vocal that’s hard to forget, ANIMOSITI is the monster in your closet that's here to stay.

"animositi wow! push n pull is great. really love the band name as well." - United States
"this is cool as fuck. i really like the bells and whatever youre using to create that beat creates a very interesting aura. im immediately hypnotized by the rhythm in a way that this sounds like a soundscape from an lsd trip ive had in the past. it quickly takes a dark turn to more of a bad trip as soon as the menacing vocals come in but im sure thats what you were going for. the fuzzy industrial sound of the electric guitar is fantastic too. its almost like ministry or nine inch nails with death metal vocals. either way this is really unique and out of the box and i applaud you for being original and putting a lot of personality into this piece. cool ass music video too. rock on \m/" - United States

"Super sick song! Love the energy and vibes here a lot..."- United States
"This is a great industrial piece. Well balanced mix, pro production, bangin' song structure and arrangements. Very effective vocal performance - it's original and brings something new to the genre. The closest thing I can think of is Otto Von Schirach. I'd love to see how this translates to a live performance. The video is great too, no complaints there." - Germany
"damn this is creepy as hell. nice work. straight up" - United States
