One of Montreal's most reputable and celebrated melodic extreme metal acts KARKAOS is proud to unleash their new music video "Tyrants" off their latest offering "Children of The Void"featuring new vocalist Viky Boyer, drummer Justine Ethier (Blackguard) and lead guitarist Samael Pelletier along with collaborations with guest artists Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle of Filth) andMorgan Lander (Kittie).
The bands comments:
"Karkaos is extremely proud to release its new video for the song ‘’Tyrants’’. This new video crafted by JP Charlebois, known for his work with Ion Dissonance and Slaves On Dope, is the perfect visual vessel to bring this song to your screen by being as brutal, relentless and intricate as the song itself.
We felt that Tyrants was the perfect song to give a second and different look to Children Of The Void. Its powerful meaning can easily be applied to our world and the weird times we all seem to be going through. We need to remember that we will always be stronger united than divided and this song is a testament to people taking the lead when our leaders couldn’t. Make sure to watch it and share it with your friends and pick up a copy of the album or some merch if you enjoyed it."

"It hammers along from the opening whistle, with clean female vocals and growls to boot....a thundering release, and with melody always bubbling under the surface will appeal to a wide range of metal fans, more so those at the heavier end of the spectrum." - Raven Heart Music
"Le groupe a tout en main maintenant pour conquérir le monde, car avecChildren of the Void ils jouent dans la cour des grands. Québec-Métal vous recommande fortement cet album dès sa sortie." - Quebec Metal
"As we’re all the children of the void, let’s raise our horns and bang our heads to the superb new album by one of the most reputable and celebrated metal acts hailing from the beautiful province of Quebec." - The Headbanging Moose
"The 12 tracks of Children of the Void take you on a symphonic journey, a journey filled with pace & intense metal riffs blended with soaring melodies. The mix of female vocals against the death metal growls, the super-fast drum beats, the screaming guitar solos & action packed orchestral elements really push Karkaos to another level. Think the guitar style of Children of Bodom with the brutality of Arch Enemy & the melodic nature of Epica but with their own unique sound." - Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
"the way that Karkaos infuses all of their elements that make it a standout record. This is a band that can strike hard and fast if they want to, and on a number of occasions bring out some rather pleasing, death metal-induced heaviness." - Dead Rhetoric
"Karkaos’ second full-length feels like a gift that keeps giving. There’s always something to get excited about – be it a snarling riff, beaming melody, or a soaring vocal. Symphonic melodic death metal that can move from visceral and aggressive to epic and catchy on the drop of a hat. It contains all the quintessential elements and presents them in a way that still feels fresh and exciting. You won’t find a better example of the style this year." - Dead Rhetoric #5 on Best of 2017 List
"This is massively majestic and leaves a lasting impression and asserts that Karkaos are a band to watch out for." - Dark Art Conspiracy
"Definitely appealing to the symphonic and melodic crowds and hitting extreme metal and metal audiences in equal measure. Karkaos know exactly what they want to be and exactly where they’re going and are likely to steadily receive more attention for their efforts." - Noizze UK
"Ok, here is my first impression : Wow! Karkaos, from Montréal returns with this new album and it's great... The first connection my brain did was Amon Amarth, Karkaos has that powerful sound that makes you ready to go for a journey against stronger forces. All the elements that are added to the music, bring up the word epic in my head. The music is fast and hits hard in all of the songs. I loved this album and will listen to it again." - Re Zine
"a solid album with plenty of horns-to-the-sky crescendos" - Metal Trenches
"the band delivers a very well-crafted alternative for Arch Enemy, at least as theatrical music and a slightly darker approach. Fans of the genre will surely love this." - Lords of Metal
"An album that makes an impact, a great impression. They have matured so much since 2013 and they did an awesome job on this album. They worked two years to make it and it showed. It's one of the best releases of the year." - Metal Temple
