Karma To Burn

www.k2burn.net

In 1995 ‘KARMA TO BURN’ put instrumental rock music on the map. Hailing from the Appalachian mountains, swigging on hip flasks full of cheap whiskey and 20/20 vodka, ‘KARMA TO BURN’ started their journey with only a backpack full of riffs and a bad attitude for authority.

After signing to Roadrunner Records in 1997, ‘KARMA TO BURN’ released their first album (self-titled). Roadrunner insisted that the album include vocals in order to market the release to a wider audience. The group ultimately gave in and found a vocalist, but the members knew this was a temporary fix. The music they were writing did not need vocals; it spoke for itself. After the album was released, the vocalist was ditched, leaving the band free to pursue their original purely-instrumental vision. This vision paved the way for two seminal and critically acclaimed masterpieces ‘WILD WONDERFUL PURGATORY’ (1999) & ‘ALMOST HEATHEN’ (2001). Each of these records, now regarded as classics, brought the group a steady stream of success and attention.

Sergeant Thunderhoof

https://sergeantthunderhoof.bandcamp.com

Prime cuts of riffs served with a side of tasty psychedelic mushrooms, garnished with a sprinkle of doom croutons.

"a psychedelic riff laden monster that blends Doom, Stoner Rock Hard Rock and Groove Rock. This album is dripping with class. If you want some new riff kings to follow or worship then Sergeant Thunderhoof is the band for you. Brilliant and highly recommended" - SludgeLord

"I could be lazy and throw out names like Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Monster Magnet and so on to try help get across the sound of this band and whilst that would be on the money, The Hoof are so much more than stoner/doom rock. They blend a wonderful space-y vibe into tracks that surprise and delight. This is an unbelievably excellent debut release. One that you will never tire of." - Echoes and Dust

"bombastic stoner-doom, atmospheric post-sludge and post-prog. Quality work" - R.A.I.G.

"commands attention from beginning to end. Zigurat effectively demonstrates the bands diverse influences borrowing as much from thrash, post-metal and space rock as they do from traditional doom and desert rock. Even greater things are bound to follow" - Hevisike
