Best Karnivool Songs

The Top Ten

1 All I Know

Hands down one of their best songs... still like deadman better though

No words to describe the feeling I get while listening to this song! Brilliant.

2 Themata

The best,
Hands down! Period.

Ta-wist and turinin

Killer bass, annihilating drums, screaming freakingly great vocals and awesome consistency throughout the song. This Aussie band deserves more attention, appreciation, fame and respect. Request this world to limit foolish hip-hop and turn to better musical collaboration which exists in every atom of rock (any subtype).

This is the BEST! Just listen to it, you will absolutely love karnivool, because I do, just listen, LISTEN

3 Deadman


I usually listen to this back to back with Change, and quite frankly it's a tough call which one's better. Both have so much emotion and passion. Change has the bonus of sounding like Tool. Yet Deadman takes the cake because in the end it's not only brilliant musically, but incredibly well structured as well, repeating motifs carefully and beautifully like a true progressive metal epic.

Wow. Nothing like anything. Right from the beginning till the very end. This is music

Epic artwork. So many different rhythms and melodies flowing and converging. This is music. Easily their best song.

Incredible, melodic with some of the best vocals of all of their songs

Beautiful song.. Epically structured with highs and lows..

Such a beauty, definitely should be on the first.

It's one of a kind. Never fails to connect you in.

13 Set Fire to the Hive

Simply amazing vocals, guitar, bass, drums, everything. The bass entry at the second bar of the song is epic, and the drum fills with off-time endings going into the chorus are awesome. Their best, in my opinion, and Cote comes close behind.

No idea why this isn't higher on the list. This is prog rock meets metal at it's finest.
