“The black metal machine of Karma Violens is fully working and the result sounds consummate; the cold black metal riffs burst out in flames, the galloping rhythm section exterminates everything on its way, the brutal vocals sound harsh to your senses, the whole album could be the soundtrack of the apocalypse.”– Myth of Rock
If you believe in karma then you have to believe that violence is something innate in every human or inhuman being. Karma in the old and now Indian religions is the concept of “action” understood which creates the entire cycle of cause and effect. Violence from the other hand, is inside in each one of us, some people can control it and others cannot, but in every occasion it is a part of human nature. Living in the modern world, all of us can witness violence on the streets and in every aspect of our everyday lives. The combination of KARMA VIOLENS describes the action and reaction of violence, as every action in these brutal days creates a violent response.
KARMA VIOLENS has been active in the Greek metal scene since 2002. The band has shared the stage with some of metal’s biggest names, including Judas Priest, Amon Amarth, Opeth, Fear Factory and Testament.
