Karmakanic does not perform live tens of times each year, but when they show up on stage, then their show is simply great and something to look forward too. A live album with the best tracks from their last three albums. It’s a delicious mix of their modern-day progressive rock with interesting keyboard playing, melodic vocals, original guitar arrangements and sometimes delicate jazz flavors. Morgan Ågren is new in the band and he is a real asset.
In 2012 many visitors of ROSfest didn’t know Karmakanic, but compliments about them were all over the net afterwards – “.. they were on fire..” – and they were mentioned as the best band that weekend. This album is a complete recording of their 100 minutes show and does not contain edits or enhancements. So, check out their live reputation yourself. A faithful cover version of Genesis’ Undertow is a nice surprise. Also check out the interesting promo video below with the intro of Do U Tango!
