about

Almost two years have gone by since Karakorum’s debut Beteigeuze on Tonzonen Records. Now the Bavarian-based quintet releases their new LP Fables and Fairytales. It’s not another concept-LP, instead this time there are three autonomous long tracks that can’t be more diverse. The music handles the full range from 70s heavy rock to free jazz, from epical melancholy to zappaesque obscurities, but still the band plays their “Karakorum-sound”.

In more than 40 minutes Karakorum invites the listener to a phantastic journey through the width of the Sahara desert or introduces you to some dadaistic fable creatures. It’s not always to be taken serious but if you listen closely you will find several salutes to the quintet’s biggest idols.
