Customer Reviews

Where do you begin?

This band are nothing short of genius.I have just seen them at Rock City Nottingham-2 hr. drive-and it was possibly the best band performance live I have seen for a while.Sound Awake was the main focus of the tour and an epic purchase this is! Talented musicianship,quality song construction and amazing vocals the whole band are outstanding performers.I gaurantee you will be singing along with Simple Boy and New Day and I dare you not to join in with the opening of Set Fire to The Hive with its frantic off beat non stop driving rhythm.Throughout this album Bass will batter you,Guitars will caress and prod you,Drums will make you wonder and the vocals will make you think and listen more closely.
Truly amazing and it will be a shame if you missed out on this band.BUY THIS...SERIOUSLY!
They have other material than this and Themata and it would be cool to see some of it on i-Tunes.

Nothing short of...


A Lateralis for this generation

This album is a true masterpiece. While tracks like 'Set Fire to the Hive' and 'All i Know' will hook you straight away with their mind blowing hooks, it is the longer deeper tracks like 'New Day', 'Umbra' and 'Change' that will draw into this album, keeping you coming back for more. This album is more than just a collection of songs, it takes you on a journey through a sonic landscape, exploring many different emotions and creating a thick atmosphere. The only other album take make me feel like this is the monolith that was "Lateralis" by the legendary "Tool". If you are a fan of deep meaningful music with lots of atmosphere you will love this album, but don't expect it to hit you straight away

Standout tracks:
Set Fire to the Hive, New Day, Change, Umbra

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Karnivool started out as a high school band in 1997, playing parties around Perth focusing on covers of Nirvana and Carcass with a handful of original songs thrown into the mix. After a year of this, singer Ian Kenny decided to change the focus to purely original material, getting rid of the original bandmembers -- who had been called "a bunch of clowns" around Perth, hence the name Karnivool -- and recruiting guitarists Drew Goddard and Mark Hosking, bass player Jon Stockman, and drummer Ray Hawking...
