5.0 out of 5 stars Is the the start of all I know, 13 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Sound Awake (Audio CD)
Wow.

Karnivool appeared on a music channel for 4 minutes. I added them to my wishlist and bought them a month later.
In the last week they have been on repeat at work in my ears for seven hours straight.

The guitars have that whine similar to Tool, with hard hitting riffs that you'd expect from Disturbed or System of a Down. The bass has that thrash clicking sound that Korn is famous for, and the drums are so distinct that you won't never forget that they are they. The vocals are powerful, I find it really hard to find a fault.

The five year gap between this and their first album have not changed the sound at all, if you liked that you'll love this.
The average length of song is about 5:30 minutes, which speaks for the ambience and the progressive nature of this band. Every break brings something different, though the time signature changes remain relatively simple.

The final two tracks on the album speak out to how far this band can carry a song. With Deadman being Change Part 1.5 before Change Part 2 begins.

Awesome.
