Killing Time – Song Stream:



“Laugh At The Fakes” features Everett Mason (Vocals and Guitar), Galen Weir (bass), Kevin Daliri (guitar) and Chris Avalos (drums).
Their debut six-song EP ‘One Night Only’ was released in 2011 and their 2014 follow-up full-length album, Dethrone the Crown, is scheduled to drop this fall on November 14th. Produced by Greg Dawson and mastered by Andy VanDette (Rush, Dream Theatre, Kid Rock, Deep Purple, Bruce Dickenson, Bif Naked) is a “no filler riffs, just money riffs”, as vocalist / guitarist Mason puts it, “the record deals with today’s most newsworthy topics: War, guns, murder and corruption. It’s real, it’s raw and, of course, it’s honest.’
Touring across Canada, the Toronto-based group has built a solid following with music that’s geared to stand the test of time. Heavy, melodic, crushing and catchy – Laugh at the Fakes is all that and more.

“It’s like they are a hard rock band that likes to explore their thrashy-side too. I love it because I enjoy the catchy melodic vocals but at the same time I can bang my head pretty seriously too. You don’t hear albums like this one very often, if at all. I can’t really think of anything that comes close to being like this album as a whole. ”- Rock Music Critic 

“I’ll admit, I laughed at the band name when I first heard it, but these guys are no joke.” –

“Laugh At The Fakes debut EP One Night Only proves that Melodic Vocals still can reign supreme in Metal albums.” – Kingston Music Reviews 

“The first attraction to hit the stage was Rock/Metal band LAUGH AT THE FAKES, from Toronto, Ontario. Those guys play a nice mix of Rock N’ Roll, Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, very old school but with a more polished sounding, and they surely entertained everyone already at Hard Rock Café before 9pm.” – The Headbanging Moose (concert review Indie Week 2014)

Founded in 2009, Karkaos has evolved into one of the most reputable and celebrated metal acts hailing from Montreal, QC. 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 former charismatic singer and front woman, the band released their first E.P. entitled “In Burning Skies” in 2011 closely followed by a professionally shot music video and a live appearance on Montreal’s prestigious music television station “Musique Plus”.

Following a great reception and positive reviews, the band was invited to participate in local competitions and perform with international acts such as Into Eternity, Enslaved, UneXpect and Unleash the Archers. Growing exponentially, the band enlists new veteran members of the local music scene before returning to the studio to record their debut full-length album called “Empire”. With a new solid line-up, the band released the music video for “Depths of Madness” in December 2013 and their debut album in March 2014 to critical acclaim.

Forever evolving, Karkaos parted 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.
