put: "This album kicks some serious butt!”
almost one hour this Norwegian trio delivers one of the most intense and
powerful albums this year. Album number two picks up where their highly
acclaimed debut album "Conspiracy in Mind" left us just 12
months ago. Communic hit the metal scene last year like a ton of
bricks, and what I wouldn't have thought possible has happened with this
excellent album - they have topped their debut album!
obvious comparisons with Nevermore is still at hand, to some degree
because Oddleif's vocals in some areas reminds quite a bit of Warrel's,
but also because both bands brings such a high degree of pure energy
into their music. Throughout the 7 songs on the album - shortest track
clicks in at 6:40 - they keep a very high level of energy, playing some
very aggressive power metal songs.
just to label this power metal is too simple because they bring so much
more to the table - just take a listen to "Fooled by the Serpent"
- pure thrash metal riff attack. It's very powerful and straight in your
face and it makes you bang your head in sheer enjoyment. The album is
packed with brilliant riffs and leads, with progressive parts, with
speed parts, with melodic parts and the list goes on...
a single bad note is at hand here, and the songs have been supplied with
an almost perfect sound by none other than producer extraordinaire Jacob
Hansen in his studio in Ribe. So what are you waiting for? "Buy
brilliant album belongs in every metal fans collection!
