Costa Rica’s based Pneuma, have been creating their own special blend of metal music since the beginning of time.
They go into creating heavy songs, putting together musical passages that fall into complexity, but yet keeping intense grooves, headbanging riffs and boundary pushing soft hypnotic sounds. Their quest has always been to unify the 38484774 sub-genres of metal into one all inclusive "Pneuma Metal" style.
Based on the idea that they have a best chance of reinventing the hamburger than making it on the music industry, they have actually been part of very interesting events such as, opening act for Metallica, Mastodon, Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Morbid Angel and touring around the world a couple of times. They have also made some award-winning music videos and have been named personalities of the year in Costa Rica.
