My Sleeping Karma’s influences are shaped by the Heavy Metal of the 80s and 90s. Bands like Iron Maiden, Slayer, Metallica, Testament, Metal Church etc. were played repeatedly for hours at a time. Early to mid 90s genres like Grunge (Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam etc.) and Prog-Metal (Dream Theater, Watchtower), as well as Stoner- (Kyuss, Qotsa) and Psychedelic Rock (35007) were added to the mix. Crossover bands like Faith No More or lesser-known, but incredible bands like Oceansize or Fishbone tried to blend different styles. On the other hand we also listend to timeless music like U2 and our all-time favorites Tool.
We don’t really listen to more recent releases here at MSK, but we want to shout out the incredible Villagers of Ioannina City from Greece.
