Karmic Kick is the brain child of versatile songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rikus Nieuwenhuis. Following the release of the 2010 double album The Skies Between and The Skies Beyond, the handpicked team returned to the studio during the summer of 2011/2012. Working with long term friend and producer Jurgen von Wechmar, Karmic Kick recorded a collection of 15 songs entitled Enter Angels, and the result is a salvo of power groove Rock songs polished by a plethora of melodies and harmonies. The versatality of this unique project invites images of motion and energy.
Karmic Kick's The Skies Between and Beyond is a panoramic past life review, a reflection on life in 2010, and a statement of future intent. The twinned discs find Nieuwenhuis working in two apparently diametrically opposing musical styles, and the result is playful, uncompromising, and introspective. The set presents the listener with an experience remarkable for its breadth and duality. "Between" provides gorgeously lush textures to obliquely spiritual lyrics, while the surface heaviness of "Beyond" hides a wealth of melody and tunefulness. The Skies Between sees multi-instrumentalist Nieuwenhuis doing double duty on drums and guitars, while Sarah Hill provides gorgeously lush textures to his obliquely spiritual lyrics. As on both discs, Leon van der Westhuizen handles bass duties with a serpentine, melodic grace to compliment the piano's heavenly presence. The Skies Beyond presents a harder edge, with Kevin Rule's vocals finding sure footing in Nieuwenhuis' dense, heavy rythms and punchy guitar. The surface heaviness hides a wealth of melody and tunefulness that reveals itself in stages on repeat listens.
A mid tempo, bone crunching giant rock song complete with killer riffs and disturbing lyrical content. Ambiguous, confrontational and deliciously seductive whispered voices reach a chaotic climax inside a hell of chaos riding on the pulse of its own universe. Serious, playful, instantly recognisable, Male Vocals, Rock, Psychedelic Rock
Explosive, fast, aggressive! From it's opening scream this song takes off like a rocket into space. Tempo changes, double bass drums and a fast finger tapping solo combine with power male vocals in a true blood head banger. Great for wrestling, car races, extreme sports, fire, explosions and energy. Male Vocals, Rock, Heavy Metal
Tight riffs and explosive guitars meet great story telling lyrics in angelic female vocal harmonies and power male rap. Dynamic, inspirational and a unique experience as it travels between the caves of darkness before soaring into the light of heaven. Great for radio play and tv advertisements. Mixed Vocals, Rock, Heavy Metal
