1.) Ex Animo started in 2000 in Kharkov, Ukraine as studio project of Victor Kotlyaroff (guitar, bass, programing) and Andrey Lunko (guitar, vocals, synths). Inspired by european kind of metal music they began to write own material and decided not to limit their music to any specific style. In 2004 the guys finished the recording of the first album called “Solitary”. The music of album was at the turn of death, doom and gothic metal.
