If you’re not a fan of Australian progressive rock band Karnivool, then I find myself hurting on the inside. Their mix of odd time signatures, intricate and sublime melodies, and phenomenal lyrics and vocals put them, at least in my mind, on the same level as bands like Tool and Porcupine Tree. Each release has also seen them grow and evolve, from the hard rock-heavy Themata to the more progressive minded Sound Awake to their most recent release, the artistic masterpiece Asymmetry.
To get a flavor of their music, the band went into the Australian radio station triple J to perform a mellowed out acoustic version of their current single “We Are”. It’s a wonderful rendition and I loved every second of it. Give it a watch below!
