Though they only formed in 2019, Sonic Fuel have established a consistent, edgy sound. Chris Robbins, Burton Akers, and David Hales have a unified sense of ambiance, and this is furthered on “Karma” with the guest guitar appearance of Damon Johnson (Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy).
The Knoxville band know how to handle a big guitar riff, crunching rhythm and grand-and-gritty vocals. Angst prevails on “Karma” as Hales calls out those who hide behind lies. “You say you’re sorry, but it’s just too late,” he commands, and the guitar bursts around him.
Though the track is heavy at the forefront, there is a strong melodic undercurrent that keeps you coming back. Let this song be a rallying cry and a release at once — that’s the way it seems to unfurl from those who created it.
“Karma” is Sonic Fuel’s third single. You can find our past coverage of the band here. You can also follow them on their website, BandCamp, and Facebook page. Check out their Twitter for more music and news.[upme view=compact id=10]
