Tracklist and artwork of new album announced

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Norwegian metalers from COMMUNIC are back with their new album "The Bottom Deep" which is simply breath-taking! The music of the exceptional band from Norway includes many elements from various metal genres. Their grasp for variety of power, melody, and intelligent lyrics with a highly progressive musical approach made COMMUNIC one of the best newcomers for years! If you like progressiv metal, there is no way without COMMUNIC!!



Now, the band announced the tracklist and the artwork of the upcoming album:

01. Facing Tomorrow
02. Denial
03. Flood River Blood
04. Voyage Of Discovery
05. In Silence With My Scars
06. My Fallen
07. Destroyer Of Bloodlines
08. Wayward Soul
09. The Bottom Deep
10. Bonus Track: In Union We Stand

Guitarist and band mastermind Oddleif Stensland commented the new stuff:
"Writing and recording this album has been an amazing - but strange experience. This time we took control over the production ourself, resulting in a more honest and organic sounding album. Never before have I put so much of my own personal influence and privacy into the lyrics and songs as this time. Right now I have a mixed feeling of fear and total excitement as we release the artwork and track listing for this new album. Now there is no return. To open myself this way, exposing my deepest and inner thoughts, in a way I have never done before. Its kinda strange, as it feels like these words and songs came from a part of me that I didn't know about. This is "The Bottom Deep". This is the album that I never in my life thought I had to write – but now I know, this will be a totem in my life – forever!"

Dan Swanö did the mastering on this album, he said:
"It was pure pleasure to work with these guys. The mix was excellent to start with, so I finally had the opportunity to work with gentle strokes rather than the big roller that I sometimes have to use to shape-up not-so-good mixes. Musically I enjoyed it very much. It's not easy to label their music (which is good). If I had to mention something, I get that amazing "epic" vibe of Queensryche 84-88. They definitely add something to the family of progressive metal"

Eliran Kantor made the artwork for the album:
"The first draft of the lyrics from Oddleif made it clear that this is going to be a very personal, dark and vulnerable record - and I wanted the cover to reflect that. The vulture, nature's version of the grim reaper, caresses the dying man, casting a shadow reveling its true intentions and reason for this last visit. I put alot of myself into this artwork, and I think it turned out great"

„The Bottom Deep" will be released July 22, 2011!

Cool cover art. Nice to see something other than a Travis Smith piece. Looking forward to this release.

I'm not crazy about the album cover, but I'm looking forward to hearing a new album.

When someone says it "sounds more organic" what does that mean exactly?

Cheaply done. Wink

I dunno. Less glitzy production and overdubs maybe? No Pro-Tools? Just the 3 guys in the studio, banging away on their instruments to old tape machines. That's my guess.

To me it indicates a better replica of the live sound, or maybe less digital production values or effects.

I haven't listened either, but it's on purpose. If it's a known band and I know I'm gonna get the album (eventually), I try not to listen in advance and spoil the moment.

Same reason I try to avoid movie reviews and trailers if it's a movie I really want to see.

Sounds right fine to me! I love all their albums, they're really frickin' talented. I'm looking for a bit on the heavier side, personally, but I'm sure they'll do anything justice.

The reviews for the new album are starting to tick in, here`s one from Metal Army America:


The Bottom Deep (Nuclear Blast)



Proving that Norwegian metal is not relegated to corpse paint, grimness and blasphemy comes the new record from progressive metal champions COMMUNIC. Not quite a comeback album, but it has been a while: three years since their release of Payment of Existence (Nuclear Blast). In that time they have continued to refine and redefine their sound. They have always identified as a “prog” band, but they clearly still fly the flag of metal high and proud as ever too. As evident on The Bottom Deep, the band has consciously streamlined their writing process while not sacrificing the quality song-craft they have been known for.

Starting off the the blistering opening track “Facing Tomorrow” the track starts off with a hail of machine-gun fire riffs and expansive drum parts. The first few seconds have more in common with KREATOR than say DREAM THEATER and says a lot about their intentions on this album. The marching pedaled beats and chords give way to interesting textural guitar parts that lay on top of the chaos. Once again the stunning tenor vocals of guitarist Oddleif Stenland is what congeals the song together. His voice is rough enough for metal, but never ceases amaze as an expressive melodic instrument. Second track “Denial” begins with modern rock elements, but has a sizzling guitar solo and nice double kick drum fills. Downshifted into atmospheric metallic balladry, the song is emotional and has a cool chorus. More of Stenland’s emotive vocals really get to you and his range is very impressive. There are some moments of the song that will remind you of recent songs from VOIVOD or TOOL and this could be a breakout song for the band. “Flood River Blood” is more of a straight up rocker with a light verse and heavier climax. Bassist Erik Mortensen gets to stretch out and play some dewy lead lines during the verses. Two-thirds of the way through, the song turns harsh and Stenland does his best ROB HALFORD-like high scream yet. In contrast to their last album that had more obtuse structures and longer songs, COMMUNIC has reduced the sonic fluff a bit to good results. The very heavy and introspective “Voyage of Discovery” is next and has a little bit of everything the band is good at in the song. Drummer Tor Atle Andersen is the star here with his excellent playing. The song finds the band covering some of the territory better known by NEVERMORE or even BLIND GUARDIAN. Just really well written songs that are not prog for the sake of randomness, but out of a true reverence for musical aptitude. Later cuts like “In Silence With My Scars”, “My Fallen” and “Destroyer of Bloodlines” are some of the heaviest and best songs on the album with many inventive twists, time signature shifts and turns musically. “My Fallen” is certainly the most crushing track here with terrific interplay with guitars and drumming. Although not groundbreaking, The Bottom Deep is a strong and enjoyable effort start to finish.

GRADE: B+

Got mine today. headbanger First full listen through and I am quite impressed. I do not think that they are covering new musical ground, but they are still not rehashing their sound either; it is hard to describe.
I got myself the bonus cuts version with a rather fine version of "In Union We Stand" that stays close to the attitude of the Taking Over album's version if not style; and "Hurt" - not a bad take on the song, but after Cash did the definitive cover, it seems like a odd choice to redo.

Phew! Haha, I'm probably going to swing by the record store and order it through them, see if I can't give 'em some extra business.
