Kharma Code biography
KHARMA CODE was formed in 2007 as a result of Francisco (Pack) COSANO's determination to create a progressive rock/metal band, a musical style that goes way back in his family, and which has been his main influence from the moment he started playing drums. After several failed attempts to create a project in this direction, he decided to start from scratch with his friend Kike, to whom he encouraged to learn to play bass and be a part of this grand idea. After some time, Carlos REY and Orlando ALEMAN came on board to become KHARMA CODE's first guitar players, a position that would go through several changes throughout the years. They would soon be joined by Joaquín DIAZ on keyboards, who brought great musical and compositional skills to the band and who motivated the band even more to attain a solid and definitive line-up. After months of search, they stumbled upon David ORDAS through the ''Escuela de Música Creativa'', and it became obvious from the very first moment that he had to be the voice of the band.
Within the next year Orlando left the band and was replaced by Sergio RIVAS, but it wasn't until mid 2009 with the incorporation of Nacho on guitars that the band reached the stability they had longed for, and closing the current line-up: Francisco COSANO (Pack) on drums, Enrique MARTINEZ (Kike) on bass, Joaquín DIAZ on keyboards, David ORDAS on vocals and Nacho HERNANDEZ on guitars.

After playing some local gigs in which they covered songs of bands like DREAM THEATER, PAIN OF SALVATION or QUEEN, in 2010 they set themselves to write and record their first studio album ''Secrets Indoors'', released in 2011. Recorded in Oasis Studios, the album brings together the band's broad musical influences melting them into two main elements: Symphonic rock and progressive metal, trying to evoque epic passages, mixing them with crushing rhythms and crazy instrumental moments. Apart from the bands mentioned above, the band refers to SYMPHONY X, NEAL MORSE, TRANSATLANTIC, CONCEPTION, ANDROMEDA, MUSE, AYREON and HAKEN as influences.

3 stars 3.5 stars for sure

Kharma Code, this totally unknown and gone under the radar progressive rock/metal band from Spain, released a quite solid and full of intresting arrangements on their sole album released in 2011 named Secret indoors. This is quite strange that this album gone unnoticed in prog circles, this is very well worth hearing progressive metal bordering progressive rock, with epic passages, instrumental duelings evoking the best of Dream Theater, Shadow Gallery, Neal Morse, etc. The vocalist David Ordás is quite good, delivering some fine melodic lines and fiting perfect into overall music. There is only 4 pieces here, is infact an EP, but pieces are long with the highlight clocking around 18 min, a pure delight for prog listners, like the rest of the 3 pieces. I was very pleasent surprised by this album, even the influences are evident, the instrumental parts and vocal passages are good and very well played, intresting art work aswell. All in all is sad that such good towards great album remaining in the shadow of other names in the genre even the whole package is above many albums with name. Far fans of Empty Tremor, Dream Theater (the'90s period), Hydrotoxin, and bands mentioned above, melodic prog metal with top musicianship. Well woth having.

Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
