Karma To Burn - Appalachian Incantation (2010)

West Virginia's Karma To Burn are probably the best instrumental stoner metal band. Appalachian Incantation (produced by Scott Reeder and released on Napalm Records) is their fourth album to be released in their fifteen years existence. And this album doesn't disappoint! Whiskey and weed fueled, beefy southern-fried metal riffing at it's best. Also has John Garcia (Kyuss, Unida, Hermano fame) as guest vocalist on "Two Times" and Daniel Davies (of Year Long Disaster ) on the great "Waiting On The Western World". Apparently, Daniel Davies ( who is also The Kinks' Dave Davies' son) is poised to be the singer for the next album. This is the limited edition which contains the bonus Cat Got Our Tongue E.P. Enjoy!

William Mecum - Guitar
Rich Mullins - Bass
Rob Oswald - Drums

Ah, I love Karma to Burn. Rich sent me some of the newer stuff that they are working on and it is good. Am looking forward to seeing them 5th November again. Instrumental for ever :)

Excellent album I bought as soon as it when out, even better with the Cat got our tongue Ep!
By the way,John Garcia is only singing on the track "Two times". On "waiting on the western world", it's Daniel Davis from Yearl Long Disaster, who will bi the singer of KTB on the next album!

Oops! My mistake. Great singer, though. Can't wait to hear more with him.
