Founded by Vincent Harnois in 2003 under a different name, Karkaos soon evolved into one of the most reputable and celebrated metal act hailing from Montreal, Canada. Melodic yet heavy, this female-fronted band succeeds in targeting an immensely wide audience thus establishing a vast following within just a few short years. With Veronica O. Rodriguez as their charismatic singer and front woman, the band releases their first E.P. entitled “In Burning Skies” in 2010 closely followed by a professionally shot music video and a live appearance on Montreal’s prestigious Music television Station “Musque Plus”.
Forever evolving, Karkaos parts ways with their dedicated singer Veronica, moving into a more focused and professional direction by recruiting Viky Boyer, a young talented extreme vocalist and musician. With Viky at the helm, Karkaos is ready to embark on new ventures, always pushing forward the boundaries of extreme melodic metal.
In 2015, Karkaos recruits the immensely talented and experimented drummer Justine Ethier (Blackguard, Sykode). With this new lineup, the band will release an even more melodic album named ‘’Children of the Void’’ produced at both respected The Grid and Silverwings Studios.
