From Bogotá, the capital of Colombia, comes the rock/metal band that after more than ten years of work has become a musical and cultural sensation. ANTÍPODA reunites musicians, mentalities and characters. And for more than a decade they have performed, toured, recorded and appeared throughout the local music scene. Their desire to produce an album with the highest artistic standards led them to the Swedish producer, Daniel Bergstrand, known for his work with world-class bands such as Meshuggah, In Flames, Soilwork, Dark Funeral and Strapping Young Lad.
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 collaboration 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.
During 2012 - 2013, after completing a successful promotion of their album in Colombia, the band moved to Norway / Germany in order to impact the European market and seek new artistic frontiers. The band is now focused on working in collaboration with singers from around the world and releasing all new music through it's YouTube Channel.
