Karnivool – Asymmetry

karnivool asymmetry album cover

A bizarre, mellow blend of alternative rock mixed with electronica and industrial elements make up 2013’s Asymmetry, by Australia’s Karnivool. Moods range from a free-floating ambient to an ‘industrial meets emo-pop’ tangent. The oddly sequenced record of longer-length songs seems to take pride in dissonance. There are many quirks and turns written or structured into the mellow, laissez-faire music. Highlight of the record as a whole is vocalist Ian Kenny, who has a nice range and clear delivery. “Eidolon” is possibly the most accessible and enjoyable tune on the disc. Recommended for fans of modern pop, nu-industrial, and alternative rock.
