Karnivool is an Australian rock band that mixes the elements of bands like Tool, Meshuggah, and Porcupine Tree. They aren't a groundbreaking band by any means. However, their music is just really good. It is stripped of the pretension that some of their influences tend to have (aka. Tool). I have never listened to their earlier albums, but I know that their most recent Sound Awake, which was released in June 2009 in Australia and February 2010 here in the US, is an amazing album. The whole album carries an anti-religious tone, but it doesn't endorse mysticism in the process either.

If you want to hear some of their music I would suggest watching some of their live performance here: http://moshcam.com/karnivool/metro-theatre-604.aspx

If you feel like only listening to one, I would recommend the last song.

Has anyone else here heard of them?

Yeah I've heard of them because I live in Aus.

My impression was that they were pretty solid for that genre, but I haven't listened to their stuff in any detail yet. I'm into more complex music generally, but I'll give it a go.
