Karma To Burn
There are those of us who know. We will forever be known as the "fortunate ones". There are those of you that have no idea. You will be known as the "unfortunate ones". What is it we know that you don't? We know the sheer greatness of Karma To Burn. For those that are unfortunate ones, let me try to educate you a little. Karma To Burn is, without question, the greatest hard rock/heavy metal instrumental act ever to play instruments and make music. Their version of stoner metal/sludgy metal is so good that you don't even remotely miss there being a singer to keep you interested. They've done a couple of releases with singers, but they were failures by comparison to those that were purely instrumental. Their ability to write compelling music is virtually unmatched, even if success has always alluded them in the scope of things. They are as good as it gets...period.
