KARMA TO BURN
With "V", Karma to Burn releases the follow-up to their highly acclaimed comeback album "Appalachian Incantation". The trio from West Virginia remain extremely reliable in delivering first-class stoner rock. "V" celebrates monumental riffs and spirited performances, as the band successfully manages to create a hypnotic sound cosmos with purely instrumental tracks that pay homage to the godly powers of the groove. With "Jimmy D", "The Cynics", and the Black Sabbath cover song "Never Say Die", Karma to Burn lets go of their long-held instrumental tradition in order to welcome a vocalist among their ranks. Daniel Davies (Year Long Disaster) strengthens the killer grooves on these 3 tracks with his unmistakable vocal prowess. This new powerhouse of mighty riffs was produced in Dave Grohl's (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures) Studio 606 by John Lousteau, who allowed each track enough room to breathe, without robbing them of the necessary crunch and thus, creating an energetic live atmosphere rarely experienced in a music industry often driven by cheap imitations.
