Karma Zero are a band from France that plays a mixture of melodic death metal, deathcore and metalcore and this is a review of their 2012 album self released "Architecture Of Pain".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them, as for the synths and sound effects when they are utilized they bring elements of electronic music to the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine melodic death metal, deathcore and metalcore together to create a sound of their own along with a brief use of soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars they are only used on the last song and they use finger picking and full chords to bring some progressive elements to the recording.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls, high pitched screams, metalcore style shouts, and clean singing hardcore style vocals as well as a brief spoken word part, while the lyrics cover dark and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a s elf released recording.
In my opinion Karma Zero are a very great sounding hybrid of melodic death metal, deathcore, metalcore, and electronic music and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Architecture Is A Lie" "No Answers" "Modern Slavery" and "Ghosts". RECOMMENDED BUY.
