VAJRA is a breathe of fresh are as far as music goes. The band hails from non other than
New York, the melting pot of America. This doesn't surprise me at all after listening to
"PLEROMA". The band was founded by Annamaria Pinna while she was living in India.
She is the main composer, singer and multi-instrumentalists. Their music would probably
fit into the Alternative Rock genre if you had to put it somewhere, but it's a hell of a lot
more than that. They blend together exotic Middle Eastern influences with dark Modern
Rock and Gothic Metal elements. The music has a really dark vibe to it, but in an upbeat
sort of style. I hear so many influences all through out. There are touches of Classical,
which mostly comes through in Annamaria's vocals. If you were to take parts of DEAD
CAN DANCE, NINE INCH NAILS, LACUNA COIL, Sarah Brightman, SIOUXIE
AND THE BANSHEES, THE GATHERING & EVANESCENCE and added in some
Middle eastern sounds you get VAJRA. This was an unexpected delight! I could see
VAJRA becoming very popular the more this music circulates! And they deserve it!
