From powerful to ethereal, breathtaking to haunting, Karnataka’s music draws upon many influences from melodic, classic & progressive rock to symphonic cinematic soundscapes.

Karnataka rose to the forefront of new, female fronted rock bands, following the release of five critically acclaimed albums. The Gathering Light, recently won Best International Album at the World Web Awards in Italy.

Secrets of Angles is the new and hotly anticipated album from Karnataka. Featuring eight brand new tracks and showcasing a more dynamic and symphonic direction, the new album propels the band to powerful and majestic new heights. Recorded at Peter Gabril’s Real World Studios and Quadra Studios in London the new album culminates in the 21 minute opus and epic title track, Secrets of Angels.

The album features guest appearances from Nightwish’s Troy Donockley on uilleann pipes and whistles, one of Ireland’s top young harpists Seána Davey and a string section from the Royal Philharmonic orchestra.

“The booming drums, swathes of strings, haughty, harmony-laced vocals and chugging guitar sound more stirring than ever on galloping-across-the-plains anthems like Borderline and Road To Cairo, and symphonic rock fans will surely lap it up. It hits the spot in some style.” Classic Rock

“The Strongest selection of material the band have produced to date. a sense of power and drama hitherto unequalled in their repertoire… Secrets Of Angels is a triumphant work.” Prog magazine

“Karnataka have stepped up to the mark in what can best be described as quite out-standing fashion.” Fireworks Magazine

“Secrets of Angels is one of the best releases of this year so far. 10/10” Powerplay Magazine

“Secrets Of Angels’ is a triumph; an album thjat runs the full gamut of emotions and leaves no stone unturned in its quest to powerfully move anyone who takes the time to sit down with it and listen. Hands down, the band’s finest hour.” Echoes And Dust

“Wonderful” Bob Harris Radio 2

“It doesn’t get better than this… this is Karnataka” Rick Wakeman

“Karnataka’s ‘Secrets of Angels’ is a work of art. This album is incredible. This band should be on a major label and stratospheric.” Rock Report
