I have recently been listening to this Norwegian metal band's 2nd album, 'Waves Of Visual Decay'... and I have to say I just LOVE 'em... a real surprise to me.
 
Does anyone else (besides JodyLOL) like their albums???

I love the debut album!
 
I got to know them when I had a Nevermore phase...

Damn, if Nevermore started composing such cool and long tracks like Communic do than I would be totally happy.

^^ thanks guys, that's interesting.  I've not got their first album yet.  I was put off by their label as Nevermore clones, which I don't think is fair... but being as they are playing at Cheltenham in March, I thought I needed to check 'em out..
 
...and I think they are really interesting...Clap

Form what I've heard, the debut album is actually better than "Waves..."

At least thats what the press has been writing Wink

I much prefer Nevermore ... Communic are good, but too technical. In my book Nevermore are more progressive (as in "innovative"), while Communic adhere too much to the "technical prog metal formula" ... and Nevermore simply write much better songs.

So: Communic: 4 stars, Nevermore: 5 stars.Wink

Well, I enjoy Nevermore more cuz they have a brutal, intense and awesome sound!
 
Communic doesn't sound that well... But both band have very strong melodies IMO and are actually equally technical... Loomis is quite a shredder isn't he?Big smile

^ sure, Loomis is one of the best. But they manage to not make song structures and riffs overly technical. technicality is great, but sometimes it's a bit uncalled for.

Communic is very tight, I've been listening to 'Waves...' a good deal recently.
I heard they toured with Scar Symmetry not long ago... that would've been a damn fine show.

yes, they did...furthermore, both bands are playing at Cheltenham in March...Big smile
 
 
I have to say, I really didn't think there'd be so many on the site who listened to Communic... I'm most impressed.
