Children of the Void
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Karkaos' sophomore album, 'Children of the Void' is a different type of symphonic metal beast. While it has the typical symphonic element that all bands in the genre utilize, Karkaos tend to have their songs be a tad heavier than most of their counterparts. The snarling guitars and throaty, rumbling death vocals take center stage with the clean vocals taking a backing role for the majority of the album. This take on the genre is nice in that it's something a little different in approach but in execution, it still sounds like any of the other bands out there. Fun listen but it's just not anything that really stands out.
