Hi all,

Hope everyone had a nice Easter break!

Secrets of Angels has finally landed and the reaction has been amazing! Several reviews have already been posted - full details on the website - but here are a few quotes:

“'Secrets Of Angels’ is a triumph; an album that 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

"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

“'Secrets of Angels’ is a masterpiece and a triumph and something that the band should be extremely proud of, long may it continue.” Progradar

“'Secrets of Angels' - lush melodies, gorgeous vocal harmonies and fantastic use of symphonic backing... a very strong album...The music is luscious.” Lady Obscure

“'Secrets Of Angels' is a smash... the title epic - this in all honesty, is one of the best new music pieces I've heard in recent years. This is an exceptional, near-perfect release from Karnataka.” Prog Archives

The album can be ordered from the online shop.

Recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios and Quadra Studios in London the new album explores themes from despair, anguish and the futility of war to reaching out across cultural divides and culminates in the 21 minute opus and title track, Secrets of Angels. The album features guest musicians Troy Donockley from Nightwish (Uilleann pipes and low whistles), Irish harpist Seána Davey, and from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra - Rachel van der Tang (cello) and Clive Howard (viola).


The Secrets of Angels Tour has been a huge success! The response has been amazing - thank you to everyone who has made it to one (or more!) of the shows. There is still a chance to catch the band on the 3 remaining dates @ Swansea, Leicester and London.
