Karmamoi: Focusing on the human mind and its weaknesses….

Karmamoi - Room 101

In 2008 inspired by old and new progressive rock music, drummer and composer Daniele Giovannoni created Karmamoi, giving life to a musical project that was able to express his idea of music.

2008 – 2011 : The band performed in many shows in Italy and Europe, including the Jimi Festival in France and the Eurosonic Showcase Festival in the Netherlands. At the end of 2011, the band released its first album, simply called Karmamoi (Crisalide). It is the band’s only album with Italian lyrics.

2013 – 2014: In December 2013 Karmamoi released their second album called “Odd Trip” (Crisalide). Odd Trip was a huge step forward into the world of progressive rock. The band changed its sound and its way of writing music. It also saw a switch to English lyrics. The album received some great reviews, and in April 2014, Karmamoi performed at The Borderline in London supporting Curved Air, and at Zanzibar in Liverpool supporting Lifesigns.

Room 101, is the title track of the fifth Karmamoi studio album.  The album is inspired by George Orwell’s 1984. It revisits some of the novel’s themes and concepts, adapting them to the present day and focusing on the human mind and its weaknesses.

Room 101 features the participation of some great musicians, including Adam Holzman, and Steve Unruh. Karmamoi also intend to make this album their first ever vinyl release.

Lyric:

You are a man

You’re the last

You are lost

In your failures and self-destruction

You’re at the end

You’re alone

You can’t oppose

Reality now

It’s our truth, learn,

And come to us

And hate with us

BLAME, SHAME

WEAK BRAIN

HATE LIFE

LOVE GOD

Two plus Two

Adds up to five

We take control purifying  you

And Your Memory

Ripping minds

Wreaking pain

Restoring thoughts

In this room you can

Redeem yourself and pray,

Imploring us

Forgiving you now

BLAME, SHAME

WASTED BRAIN

HATE LIFE

LOVE GOD

YOUR TRUTH AND PAIN

YOUR WAR AND LIGHT

NOW AND FOREVER

NOW AND FOREVER

NOW

Freedom is Slavery

War is peace

Freedom is Slavery

Freedom is Slavery

War is peace

Freedom is Slavery

We will crush you down in a place

You cannot return ever Again

We will crush you down, party is GOD and light

We will crush you down, alone

BLAME, SHAME

BLOWN BRAIN

HATE LIFE

LOVE GOD

YOUR TRUTH IS PAIN

YOUR WAR IS LIGHT

You Cannot Believe

You Cannot Perceive

You Cannot Desire

You Cannot Exist

You Cannot Complain

You Cannot Enjoy

You Cannot Escape

101 Again

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6836 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
