WELCOME ONE, WELCOME ALL, A HEARTY WEST VIRGINIAN WELCOME TO THE KARMA TO BURN PAGE HERE AT ROADRUNNER RECORDS... the following was taken from the Roadrunner UK website, written at the time Karma To Burn's 2nd album was to be released. This should serve to give you a little idea of what to expect... The filthy people involved with this band are all from the foothills of the appalachian mountains and in such have nothing else to do. Meet Richie, Will and Bob. Three all American boys from West Virginia. They like to collect guns and worship Satan. Will (the guitarist) was a male escort who collected stamps. Rich (the bass player) who many have described as 'incredibly gifted', was President of Pennsylvania. No one knows why Rob (the drummer) quit his job as a van mechanic for his child molesting uncle. They are well known for writing bad checks and beating smaller people up when their backs are turned. They are always described as much better than asshole flavored cancer cakes. They don't like vocals. 'Wild, Wonderful... Purgatory' is an instrumental album, born out of the boys' dreams of sex, drugs and rock and roll - and the reality of their drug addled lives. Their music is as loud as it should be and as furious as it possibly could be from the world's most laid back rock stars. As you may notice, none of the tracks have songtitles. I guess the boys couldn't be bothered. The only reason they named any of the tracks on the last album is because the singer was dyslexic and sucked at numbers, but he's gone now. They did come up with an album title though 'Wild Wonderful.. Purgatory' (This comes from the West Virginia license plates, which read 'Wild, Wonderful West Virginia'). The album consists of 8 new songs plus 4 that were only ever released on a 10" EP in the US. Come to think of it, that particular 10" EP was called 'Wild Wonderful & Apocalyptic'. Guess the boys couldn't be bothered to think of a new album title either. But they didn't have to, really. Their music doesn't need to be named, it just needs to be listened to. We're all ready for tonight - how about you shithead...
