KrashKarma Brings Their High Energy Show to the Wild Goose Saloon in Parker, Colorado 11/26/2021



It is always a pleasure to see my friends KrashKarma when they are on tour. This past Friday night the Wild Goose Saloon in Parker, Colorado welcomed KrashKarma. The Wild Goose Saloon is a brand new venue which opened this past July 9th, 2021. Located just Southeast of Denver, the indoor venue has a 450-person capacity. The outdoor patio has a smaller stage, and can hold another 350 people. The indoor stage is very roomy with an excellent lighting and a quality sound system.

Co-headlining this evening with KrashKarma was the husband and wife duo, Warriors of Light featuring LVictoria (Laura Victoria) and Braden. “Warriors of Light is a faith-base, American Industrial Metal Band”.  They started their set with, ‘Wake the Bride’ and Laura wasted no time showing skills with the guitar and made her way down to the floor to play among her fans. From their website,  “THE WARRIORS OF LIGHT MISSION & MESSAGES FOCUS ON THE ONGOING BATTLE AGAINST THE PRINCIPALITIES OF DARKNESS, FEAR & DESPAIR BY USING MUSIC AS A WEAPON TO SHED TRUTH, LIGHT & VICTORY TO ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.” This can be heard through their vocals and very powerful industrial sound. Both Laura and Braden vocals can be very deep and dark as can be heard in the song, W.A.R. Within their song, Fear Is A Lie, I believe their journey through their music is one of not preaching but informing. Finishing their set with Serpentslayer, which brought an end to a very interesting mix of music and lyrics. This was my first time seeing Warriors of Light, and enjoyed them very much.

After a short break, the stage was ready and so were Ralf Dietel and Niki Skistimas of KrashKrama. Starting their set with ‘Gone’ , from their 2021 album Storm, a night of high energy and fun got under way. Their lighting was set low in front of them, giving them that look of holding a flashlight close under your chin look. Both of them put a lot of emphasis on their movements when they play, so their arms, legs and hair go in many directions which is fun to watch, as well as fun for me to photograph. As the duo moved through their music, they interacted with the crowd and themselves as well. Before during or after any show, you will always see them enjoying their friends and fans. That is a big part of who they are and their fans love them for it. They both share the vocals and the harmonica as well. Ralf can get really going with moving in circles and throwing his dreads as did during the song, ‘Footsteps of a Lemming’ from their 2018 album, Morph. 

Then it’s time for Niki to pick up something a little larger than a drum stick, The hammer with the smiley face on the head. And the song to go with it, ‘Girl with a Hammer’ from their 2021 album Storm. She walks across the stage hammering a cymbal on the floor. Meanwhile Ralf is jumping up and down as his fingers work their magic on the guitar. As the set was winding down, Niki moved to the front of the stage and knelt down while she sang interacting with fans. ‘Tears of Gasoline was their finally song going back in time to their 2010 album, Straight to the Blood. But they did add a little extra ending to their show with Niki moving around thumping hard on her drums while Ralf with crashing riffs to close out their night.

Immediately they came off stage and started mingling with their fans and the new fans they had just made. When I ask people who have seen them for the first time, the response is almost always the same, they are fun and I enjoy their music. And I can’t think of a better reason to catch KrashKarma on tour.
