RockmusicRaider - Karma Rassa - Vesna...Snova Vesna - Album Cover I admit, we do like bands that somehow navigate outside of the proverbial box. Those that will point their music to wherever their artistic urges take them. A journey that gets us to unexpected soundscapes that we did not hear often before. Or never at all.

So – in this light – it is not that we forgot about Karma Rassa and their 2018 record Vesna…Snova Vesna. The time just had to be right to get our juices flowing for such an eclectic Progressive Rock and Metal album.

The band already pretty much got on our good side with [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - My Indigo - My Indigo - Album Cover This is one of those ‘if only’ moments. You see, these instances where you wish that you or someone else would just have taken the path to the right in this fork of the road.

This record kinda floated about the RockmusicRaider office suite [...] Click to raid more!
