Karmakanic launch lyric video for ‘Steer By The Stars’

new album ‘DOT’ out now!


Sweden-based progressive rockers Karmakanic have just released their fifth album ‘DOT’ on InsideOutMusic. To celebrate they have released a brand new lyric video for the track ‘Steer By The Stars’ which you can see here:

Karmakanic main man Jonas Reingold  says:

“This 4 min song stands in contrast to the 30 min epic that is on the album. I like the Yin and Yang philosophy; dark / bright, complex / simple. It has always been a real thread throughout the musical history of Karmakanic. It showcases Göran Edman at his best, Gentle Giantish vocal harmony arrangement with a stunning lead performance. This is also my very first compositional collaboration with my long time buddy Andy Tillison, he also recorded some awesome hammond organ for the track. Start the engines and steer by the stars, it might take you to places never seen before.”


‘DOT’ is the band’s first studio album since 2011’s much-praised ‘In A Perfect World’ and the current line-up includes Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings), Göran Edman (Yngwie Malmsteen), Morgan Ågren (Casualties Of Cool, Frank Zappa, Steve Vai), Lalle Larsson (Agents Of Mercy), Nils Erikson, Krister Jonsson, Andy Bartosh and Ray Aichinger
