4 stars Tool...Mars Volta...A Perfect Circle are real and evident on this 2009 release by Karnivool. It is pretty obvious where their influences lie. Just listen to the 12 minute track "Deadman". Could have fit very well on AENIMA by Tool, or FRANCIS THE MUTE by The Mars Volta. Not to say there is any actual copying going on here! This is great music and compares favorably to the above mentioned giants of Hard Prog. Best tunes: "Deadman", "New Day", and "SImple Boy". Great and interesting compositions with lots of cool buildups to harder sounds and good lyrics and melodies. Everthing a band needs to make it in the world of heavy progging. 4 stars but I may revise it later as I listen to it more. It is a grower...
