Karnya is a new progressive metal band from Rome, Italy. With members from Utopia and Zen, their debut "Coverin´ thoughts" is a well arranged album performed by impressive musicians and a strong vocalist in Fransesca Naccarelli. They´re influenced by 70´s prog, modern metal and classical music, I think this lengthy album could´ve been 10 or 15 minutes shorter because it´s quite demanding for the mind to take in such massive and technical parts for more than an hour. Dream Theater warning here! Although I think Karnya sounds more like Circus Maximus, Frameshift and Sun Caged. The title track is awesome and the 15 minute long "A paraphreniac menticede" is a splendid progmetal journey, I think the short piece "Hariel" is really beautiful and the powerful "Where the silence remains" stand out too. A standing ovation for the excellent musicianship once again.
