MY SLEEPING KARMA have already achieved an considerable status in the music scene by releasing superb albums and playing incredible live shows. The fourth alum "Soma" follows the band’s own individualistic and atmospheric path towards enlightenment. Following the meaning of the album title ("Soma" is the intoxicating drink of the gods), the instrumental Psychedelic Groove Rock of the German quartet enhances the consciousness in a truly hypnotic and bewitching manner. The multilayered compositions move skilfully between heavy rock riffs and enchanting melodic parts with a high level of calmness and beauty. "Soma" is visually complimented by Sebastian Jerke’s artwork that is filled with astonishing details and beauty. "Soma" offers the perfect movie soundtrack to everybody’s own inner journey. Just be warned, you may never want to leave again! Psychedelic Groove Rock!

My Sleeping Karma are very thankful and excited for the opportunity to work with one of the most important record labels in the independent heavy/rock scene.
During several meetings, Napalm´s representatives gave us always the feeling of real understanding in My Sleeping Karma´s musical journey. We were impressed by their open minded thinking as it is surely not usual to give an instrumental psychedelic rock band a chance. The band wants to say a big THANK YOU to all the people supporting us over the years. This step would not have been possible for us without you!
-Keep your good Karma -
04.10.2011 | Thanks London! Thanks Stefan!
some news before we hit the road to meet you all (hopefully) during the Up in Smoke III Tour.
Thank you very much dear people in London! You made our first UK concert ever really unforgettable. It was an amazing night and we promise to come back soon.
Some of you might have read it in the last Elektroasch Newsletter. My Sleeping Karma will release their new album in 2012 on another record label. We took our time for that decision but we feel it is the right thing to do.
We will announce our new collaboration end of next week.
The band wants to thank Stefan Koglek from Elektrohasch Rec. for all his work, his constant support and the good times. Stefan never tried to "bound" the band on his label and we appreciate very much his professional understanding for our next step.
By the way, Elektrohasch will release the sold out vinyl versions "My Sleeping Karma" and "Satya" in the next weeks.
Stay tuned & Keep your Karma
