Kaj?s final words:So you thought the Australian numetal scene was all about The Butterfly Effect,Sunk Loto,Full Scale and Cog - then think again coz from the Westcoast we find the enormous and powerful quintet of Karnivool!
This band was formed in 1998 and their full length debut "Themata" has been more than 3 years in the making,everyday of this time was worth the effort and the long process coz their metal is as untamed as a vicious Razorback!
With oriental harmonies,intelligent songwriting,pounding rhythms and unexpected chordchanges - Karnivool is the Mad Max of metal,wild and entertaining!
"Themata" also ends just like a horrormovie that opens for a sequel,I can?t wait to hear Change part 2 and it better be soon................

I can't get enough of Karnivool! They are definitely my favourite band. Every other band I listen to doesn't cut it for me any more.

The title track Themata is superb... these guys are on the plane right now to the US and they┬┤re going eat Metallica. This just the kind of intelligence that metal is calling for.

You gotta get this album.. anyone into Tool, APC, Incubus, Metallica, anything heavy and melodic, with wicked changes in timing and if you have an appreciation of well constructed, awesome riffs, and intricate vocals - GET THIS NOW!! Just been released in UK & USA. Do it. Go to their myspace if you are still not convinced for a preview!
