Since they're defunct
Odd.. I don't remember them saying they've pulled up stumps. Last time I checked they were still recording a new album and were about to go on a Sound Awake anniversary local tour, but the latter stopped because 'Stay Home It's 2020 And Counting'.

Ah, you'd know better than me. I had heard something about them putting the band on pause semi-officially in 2017 or so but I could be misremembering.

Still glad to hear Ian on a project like this. Olly is a cool dude in his own right too, obv.

Will check this out. Sound Awake is an inspirational masterpiece that I will listen to for the rest of my life. Couldn't get into Asymmetry at all.

That's Olly Steele of Monuments's solo album? I love Monuments and I love Karnivool, so that sounds like it could be really good. It sounded like a way that Karnivool COULD have evolved if they had released an album now, considering their last album came out all the way back in 2013.

Although I enjoyed Asymmetry, it was nothing remotely as good as Sound Awake... or Themata for that matter. I think Asymmetry was more similar to Sound Awake in some ways, but Themata was just a much more entertaining and engaging album.

Yep, can confirm they should have been touring this year, they were meant to come to the UK for Sound Awake anniversary.

That was cool.

I love Karnivool. I hope to god they're not done, because they're one of the best bands of the last 20 years.

This is my second time hearing this and it's grown on me a bit. Something about the mix or guitar tone is really distracting to me in the beginning.

Since they haven't done anything on years, all of my Karnivool love went toward Leprous. Different, but in the same vein (IMO).

Only listened on a phone so far, but holy hell are those guitars loud. Drowning out the vocals and the drums when they get busy.

I actually like Leprous quite a bit more than Karnivool (even though I've known and listened to Karnivool for way, way longer), but I don't think they sound at all similar personally.
