Norwegian progressive/power metallers COMMUNIC, featuring ex-SCARIOT members Oddleif Stensland (vocals) and Tor Atle Andersen (drums), have posted the following message on their official web site:"It has been a really amazing year for COMMUNIC. One year ago we made our first demo and was unknown of what to come, and during this year we have managed to get a great record label and management that is supporting us all the way!!! We have recorded our debut album that will be released early next year — and last weekend we shot a video for the title track of the album, 'Conspiracy In Mind', so things have happened quite fast, but there are still more to come... "Nearest future will be used to promote our new album and we have also started to put together a live set and have already booked some upcoming gigs and are working to get going on a tour starting early next year as well, so hopefully we get around to play allot live to support the album during the coming year. The plan is that Peter Jensen, who also played the keys in the studio will join us for live gigs and tours, so we can recreate the songs as close as possible live. We have also started to work on some new songs, so we are on the move already... "We are really looking forward to see what the coming year will bring for COMMUNIC. COMMUNIC's debut album, "Conspiracy In Mind", was recorded at Hansen studio in Ribe, Denmark with producer Jacob Hansen (RAUNCHY, ILLDISPOSED, ANCIENT, MANTICORA, MERCENARY).
