KARMA TO BURN To Release 'Appalachian Incantation' In May

Resurrected Morgantown, West Virginia instrumental metal pioneers KARMA TO BURN will release their fourth album, "Appalachian Incantation", on May 11 via Napalm Records. The group's first studio CD in eight years was produced by ex-KYUSS bassist Scott Reeder and contains eight instrumentals chronologically titled from "41" to "48", along with the track "Waiting for the Western World", which features YEAR LONG DISASTER frontman Daniel Davis on vocals. A deluxe edition of the album will include a seven-track bonus CD of rarities and re-recordings.

A cult band with an extensive, highly cherished back catalog, KARMA TO BURN reunited last year after laying dormant for most of the decade and soon embarked upon a reunion tour, including a coveted spot at 2009's Download festival. All this action is captured on the "Live 2009 - Reunion Tour" DVD, which was released domestically on December 15 by Napalm Records, the band's new label home.

Quality video footage (three-camera mix) of KARMA TO BURN's April 18, 2009 concert at the Ravari in Columbus, Ohio can be viewed below (clip shot and uploaded by Digitallive).

KARMA TO BURN split in 2002 after Rich Mullins left to join Texas aggro-rockers SPEEDEALER.

KARMA TO BURN consists of guitarist Will Mecum (TREASURE CAT), bassist Rich "Dickie" Mullins (YEAR LONG DISASTER) and drummer Rob Oswald (NEBULA).
