Quick introductory interview.

Interview with Carma.
1. Who are you and how did the band get started?

Greetings! We are Carma, we are from Portugal and we create soundscapes inspired by Funeral Doom, Black Metal and Dark Ambient. Carma was created back in 2011 as a side-project. The original idea was to re-use songs that didnít fit the repertoire of our main band, Everto Signum, but eventually Carma evolved in a full scale band.

2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?

Doom was chosen naturally, since the songs we wanted to re-use were very slow, heavy and melancholic. Then, we experimented blending other styles we liked with Doom, creating a mix of Blackened Funeral Doom and Ambient. Carmaís music is atmospheric, sentimental and pretty dynamic (for Funeral Doom), with the goal to create different moods.

3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?

After our debut album was released, we were invited to play at two biggest Doom events in our country. And, of course, the generally positive feedback we keep receiving for the album itself is also very important.

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

The music of Carma has various sources of inspiration. Among those, three bands would be Abyssmal Sorrow (Funeral Doom influence), Nortt (Blackened Funeral Doom influence) and Burzum (Ambient influence).

5. What are your plans for the near future?

Currently, we are working on the second album. Our main goal is to produce and release the album in the nearest future, then we will see what comes with it.

6. If there is anything you would like to add, the last words are yours.

We would like to wish you and all Doom-Metal.com staff all the best, keep up the great work.
