Karmian has checked in with the following update about writing new material for an upcoming album:
"After the great gig in Brescia, we are ready to give you some news about the upcoming album, actually in the songwriting phase. Two songs are already finished. One of them, 'Shadow of the Eagles,' has been played live for the first time last Saturday.
"As we already said, the album will be about the Boii, a gallic tribe who conquered Northern Italy before the rise of the Roman Empire. The first song finished is called 'They Burn.' This song talks about the conquer of Bologne by the gallic tribes defeating the Etruscans approx on 390 B.C. The song, very fast and aggressive, describes the barbaric frenzy that crushed the Etruscans and portraits Felsina (Etruscan landmark of Bologne) put on fire.
"The second song completed, 'Shadow of the Eagles,' talks about the rise of the Romans. The song describes the battle of Sentinum (295 B.C.) that allowed Rome to unify Central Italy. After this battle, Boii and Rome were doomed to meet for the control of Northern Italy.
"Stay tuned for more songwriting reports, we also released a new video (the Twilight of the Thunder God cover, recorded live in Brescia the 8th of February) available below." More...
Bass player Gabriele Gabrieli has now joined Karmian, and the band comments:
"From 1992 to 2000 he was singer and bassman of the death metal band Agony. New priorities in life made them split and he retired from stages, but in 2012 the call of metal was too strong. He started to play bass with Soldiers, coming home to death metal joining Karmian. We are very proud to be again a band of five and to have his experience in!" More...
