"ANTIPODA Surprises!"

It surprises! ANTIPODA's new record marks a very high point in Colombia's strong sound evolution. Without a doubt it's one of the most outstanding records in 2008 in our country. The band explores, finds and identifies with a proposal in according with a new world. The album is dense, strong, atmospheric and metallically concieved with the present day in mind. It's an important piece for those who look for new sounds. You just got to have it!!

"In our country good rock can be made"

In our country good rock can be made and an example of it is ANTIPODA, a band from Bogotá that perfectly knows how to conjugate the "oposites" in order to evolve to the highest of musical creation.

A different alternative that demonstrates that rock in my town does indeed have a promising present. - JACOBO CELNIK -- Musical Editor for "Cambio" and Comcel's "Voz a Voz" magazines


"ANTIPODA took advantage of the planet Earth"

ANTIPODA's new work teaches us that you have to go to a musical explosion's source in order to shape a real and competitive sound, and to go beyond the simple local sound plan, which doesn't offer many comparison parameters. ANTIPODA took advantage of the planet Earth in order to offer (here in Colombia) a sample of present day's best rock sound. Keep rocking!

"1 rock + 1 metal = 0 Radical"

Manifesto is the result of combining Colombian metal with the virtuous production of Daniel Bergstrand, producer of In Flames and Meshuggah.
ANTIPODA returns to their homeland to prophesy with a refined Scandinavian sound, but with Latin essence.

Bio

Antípoda is an Alternative Rock project born in 1997 in Bogotá, looking forward to establish its music among young people worldwide.

The band expresses its music from within the context of a Colombian musician, his vision, cultural background and musical influences along with an avant-garde European production.

Even though the band members are professional musicians from Universidad Javeriana, ASAB and Universidad Nacional de Colombia, most of these rock related projects started in a garage and ANTÍPODA is not the exception. Their persistence and discipline have allowed them to become from a juvenile dream into a world-class Rock band.

FROM BOGOTÁ, THE CAPITAL OF COLOMBIA, comes the rock/metal band that after more than 10 years has become a musical and cultural sensation. ANTÍPODA reunites musicians, mentalities and characters and have more than a decade performed, toured, recorded and appeared throughout the music scene.

Their desire to produce an album with the highest artistic standards has led them to Swedish producer, Daniel Bergstrand, known for work with world-class bands such as Meshuggah, Soilwork, In Flames, Strapping Young Lad among others.

In a series of recording sessions between January and February of 2008 at the Dug Out Studios in Uppsala, Sweden, Bergstrand directed, recorded and mixed ANTÍPODA’s long-awaited debut album “Manifesto.”

Their successful colaboration reaffirmed the band’s strong commitment and unique vision to present exciting new material that will extend far beyond international boundaries. Fans hungry for artistic perfection can now taste the fruits of their labor with the release of this first single, aptly titled “Beyond.” ANTÍPODA is here… and there’s no turning back. We just have to listen, enjoy and admire.
