Chitral "Chity" Somapala, the Sri Lankan vocalist who has previously fronted such groups as AVALON, FIREWIND, FARO and RED CIRCUIT, has announced the formation of a new "atmospheric, bone-crushing power metal" band called CIVILIZATION ONE. Joining Somapala in the group's international lineup are Aldo Lanobile (guitar; SECRET SPHERE), Luca Cartasegna (drums; ex-SECRET SPHERE, MORTUARY DRAPE), Vivian Lalu (keyboards; LALU, SHADRANE), Pierre-Emmanuel Pélisson (bass; ex-HEAVENLY, MALADAPTIVE).Commented Somapala: "If you enjoy, the prowess of early METALLICA/MEGADETH with more electricity than CHILDREN OF BODOM and the emotions of EVERGREY, then you're on for a winner here! This band has it all, and are going to create carnage! Be prepared to get fully blown away by bone-crushing, skull-breaking metal (beware, there is no cheese involved with this). This chapter of metal has only just begun." For more information, visit www.civilization-one.com.
