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 and others cannot, but in every occasion it is a part of human nature. Living in the modern world, all of us can see violence in our eyes, in the streets and everywhere. The combination of Karma Violens describes the action of Violence, because every action in these brutal days creates a violent respond.
Karma Violens is an extreme metal band which has created an amalgam of Extreme Metal (death, thrash, black), combined with Hardcore music lines and idiosyncrasy.
The first musical signs of the band came with the release of the band’s first E.P. called “KATARA” which was selected as “Demo of the month” in the UK’s Metal Hammer magazine in May 2007.
The first album, “Dormancy” was released in 2011. Mixed and mastered at Lambesis studios in California, USA owned by Tim Lambesis (As I Lay Dying). There Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, Winds of Plague, Sworn Enemy) created a massive heavy wall of sound and gave the opportunity to the band to be heard as it should be heavily heard.
Besides the recordings, the priority for the band is to play live with whomever whenever, and wherever, so that the name of the band can reach to as many possible bleeding ears. The band has shared the stage with significant bands such as Judas Priest, Amon Amarth, Fear Factory, Arch Enemy, The Black Dahlia Murder, Heaven Shall Burn, Rotting Christ, Septic Flesh, The Ocean, Darkest Hour etc.
