Animamortua is a Maltese metal band influenced by various styles such as thrash metal, power metal and speed metal. Formed in June 2015 by ex-Relicuia members Juan Xerri (vocals), Clayton Cini (guitars, also Thy Legion drummer) & Josef Bray (drums), they rounded out their first line-up with Steve Azzopardi on bass and began to write material and quickly found their own style where they incorporated melody in the guitars and topped it off with powerful melodic vocals.
Between October and November of the same year they recorded their 3 track EP at XIR Mobile Recording Studio by the capable hands of Clayton Cini.
By the end of 2015, the band assumed a stable line-up, which saw the addition of guitarist Emanuel Portelli from Victims of Creation.
The band is currently working hard to finish their debut album, which is targeted for release in 2017.
