There are two artists with this name:

1) AINA is a union of over 30 highly skilled musicians and performers brought together for the sole purpose of making a Metal Opera. The concept belongs to guitar player (Heaven's Gate) / producer (Rhapsody of Fire & Kamelot) / visionary Sascha Paeth who took charge of the arrangements, guitars and basses and entrusted Amanda Somerville with the story line and lyrics. Robert Hunecke-Rizzo (Luca Turilli, Rhapsody & Kamelot) also handles basses and guitars plus the drums, and Miro takes care of keyboards, orchestration and various sound effects. The project boasts an extensive cast of famous guest musicians from the Hard Rock and Metal communities, and the singers' roster reads like a Who's Who of the Prog/Metal scene (ft. Simone Simons: Epica, Marko Hietala&Emppu Vuorinen: Nightwish)

The story line is a fantasy saga about love, hate and sibling rivalry, and the album features a variety of musical themes and atmospheres, ranging from speed metal and solid rock numbers to delicate acoustic parts, aerial, 'maiden' vocals, even a boys' choir. On the technical side, you'll hear some powerful riffs, fancy keyboards, guitar solos, sonic drumming, overall catchy melodies and first-rate performances from all involved, particularly from vocalist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath).

AINA's self-titled album comes in 2 cds with a 64-page, beautifully illustrated booklet where disk 1 features the main material and disk 2 contains some single and alternate versions of the same songs plus a few demos. A limited edition of the album contains a 3rd disk: a DVD featuring a documentary on the making of "Aina", a 3D animated clip and some slides and pictures from the album's booklet.

2) Aina has been for years the main band in the Spanish indie/punk scene, and one of the most travelled bands around Europe since their birth in 1995. For that reason, their regular visits to the United Kingdom have somehow culminated with the recording of a Peel Session at the BBC in December 02 as only their labelmates The Unfinished Sympathy had done a couple of months before. The only two spanish bands ever to record at the BBC recorded unreleased and alternative material for the occasion, and in the case of Aina it represented a view along their long career, featuring the suite "Bipartite/Two Questions" from their last record "Bipartite" (BCore, 01), "Ice" from Aina (Bcore, 99), "Spring" from their earlyest era (compiled in "Sevens" (BCore, 96) and the fresh "You shook me all night long" by AC/DC. With this Peel Sessions Aina show themselves as the muscular, powerful and precise playing-machine they are in live appearences and that have left hundreds of open-mouthed kids all around europe for years.
