French metal rockers Karelia are set to release new album "Golden Decadence" in the UK on 15thApril through Rocksector Records. The album features a guest performance from the legendary Scorpions guitarist Rudolph Schenker on the tracks Keep Watch On Me and The Way Across The Hills. The first single from the new album is entitled Vanity Label.
Karelia are very special guests on Michael Schenker's upcoming Temple of Rock / Lovedrive reunion UK tour in April. Dates include Salisbury City Hall (April 18), Oxford o2 Academy (April 19), Nottingham Rock City (April 20) and Norwich Waterfront (April 21).
Following the release of their self-produced demo and shows with acts such as Kamelot, Karelia signed in 2003 with Drakkar/Sony-BMG and released two albums, Usual Tragedy (2004) and Raise (2005). Early success was evident, especially in Japan where Burn magazine ranked Usual Tragedy #4 in their metal chart. Germany, Russia and Brazil also embraced the band. For their third album Restless (2008), Karelia toured extensively in France with the Scorpions.
Inspired especially by their experiences at the Scorpions shows, Karelia set about writing the new "Golden Decadence" album by combining groove-laden industrial and electronic riffs, melodic, catchy anthems and extremely loud crunching guitars.
