Ainu is a Genoese cinematic sludge/post-doom trio established in 2021. The project stems from the trio’s passion for cinema and their close relationship with the sea, its stories, and its creatures. Their debut album “Ainu” is a concept record that moves between powerful and stirring soundscapes, building up at a slow but steady pace between psychedelia and post-metal. It is an intense, dense and emotional experience that uses the descriptive foundations of seamen and the calls of huge animals to recall the connection between sound and the environment that composes it.
