- Featured Band
The release of Karnivool's full-length album 'THEMATA' marks one of the
most highly anticipated releases for an independent band.
The album itself has been more than 3 years in the making and it's got
plenty to show for it. Capturing a perfect blend of both melodic beauty
and spine-bending rock, this album will appeal to anyone who desires a
truly unique sound. For a band that has done it all themselves, this album
represents the apex of their efforts and endeavours over the last 3 year
slog. With a powerful reputation backing the intensity of their live
performances and armed with a killer release, Western Australia's biggest
buzz band are set to conquer in 2005.

melody, first class vocals and dynamic musicianship." - Xpress Magazine
