It´s going really well for the sons of Perth now, Karnivool had their first #1 album on the ARIA chart and they also won their first ARIA award for best hard rock/heavy metal album for "Asymmetry". And since it´s taking so long for Tool to release new music, what could be a better substitute than these Aussie metallers.
This is a safe buy if you´re into suggestive and progressive metal, you can always count on Karnivool being quality for the ears. However, I still think "Sound awake" is a stronger album but that doesn´t mean the new album by any means is weak. It´s not!
I prefer Forrester Savell´s production on the previous albums before Nick DiDia´s more raw sound, I agree that DiDia gave the band a more live-feel to the songs which works.
The best with Karnivool is that you get to discover new things everytime you listen to their music.
