KARKAOS has evolved into one of the most reputable and celebrated melodic extreme metal acts hailing from Montreal, QC. Unleashing their debut LP “Empire” in 2014 and EP “In Burning Skies” in 2011, this female-fronted band returns in 2017 with their new offering “Children of The Void”, which features new vocalist Viky Boyer, drummer Justine Ethier (Blackguard) and lead guitarist Samael Pelletier.
Recorded, mastered and mixed with Christian Donaldson and Marc-o Frechette at The Grid (The Agonist, Cryptopsy, Neuraxis, Beyond Creation) with keyboards done at Silverwings Studios (Blackguard, Ex-Deo , Distoriam), “Children of The Void” also features collaborations with guest artists Lindsay Schoolcraft from Cradle of Filth and Morgan Lander from Kittie along with artwork done by the immensely talented Marcela Bolívar and layout done by Fred Riverin from I Legion.
“We have been working hard for a long time to be able to give you an album that combines beautiful melodies to our own symphonic signature, groovy and brutal riffs to intensity as well as catchy choruses.” comments guitarist Vincent Harnois.The album is now available on iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify and all major online retailers.
