4 stars Wooooooa!Even after almost 5 years since this album was released,each time when I made an audition of it,I've got the same reaction!This album kicks ass!It's simply OUTSTANDING! COMMUNIC are,definitelly,the European answer to NEVERMORE-no doubt about it!No matter how hard we try to find other elements in the Norwegian's music,it's more than obvious that they are 200 % heavyly influenced by NEVERMORE!The whole structure of the songs,the drumming double pedal madness and especially the vocalist's organ-COMMUNIC ARE NEVERMORE'S CLONE!And ,what's more important-they are not at all less good thet their models!I even think that on some aspects-the dramatism of the interpretation and the soft presence of the keyboards-are making COMMUNIC's music more deep and profound!Of course,WARREL DANE has an unique voice,but Oddleif's one is suprbe too!This man can transmit unbelieveble emotions and great feeling thru his superbe voice-and this is a major ace in COMMUNIC'S advantage!Not even a weak song-all the album is monolyth-strong as steel-but there are too many mid-tempo songs in my humble oppinion!And there is another attractive element in COOMUNIC's music-the fact that there are long instrumental passages- just look at the timming of each track!Trully impressive the maturity of the guys and their musical vision!I hope in the future they will find a more personal and particular identity in the music-because they are trully to influenced my NEVERMORE under too many aspects!BUT I LIKE THAT!!!!!The production is sensational-top indeed,with a powerful and mazing strength and heaviness!Great artwork too!I think after the minblowing debut album-this second one-is even stronger!Strong 4 stars for a magnificent thrash power progressive album!
