Communic  


The Norwegian trio Communic came together in 2003, two of the three guys hailing from a similar band, Scariot. A year later a well-received demo was released, followed by their debut album, Conspiracy In Mind, in 2005. At their heaviest there's a clear Nevermore vibe, both in the crunchy, almost thrashy riffs as well as vocally -- Oddleif Stensland can't quite match Warrel Dane's power and command, but he comes close at times. At other times these guys relax into a more traditional heavier progressive metal, and Stensland's vocals takes on a more melodic feel. Communic haven't yet forged a unique identity, but Conspiracy In Mind is a solidly executed power/prog metal album, and as this is only their debut album, a fine start to their career.
