Tech-death/groove metal outfit Common Dead is slowly but surely morphing from solo effort to full ensemble. Originally the lone wolf project of guitarist and vocalist Andrew Laurenson (who performed all instruments on the band's earliest three albums), Common Dead now includes the talents of drummer Bruno Allemand. Allemand is a former collaborator with ex-Cryptopsy's Alex Auburn and spent many years in the Montreal-based Black Sabbath tribute group, War Pigs.

The band is in the process of inducting additional members and honing material for shows, which should include tracks from Common Dead's solo era alongside new material from the group yet to be recorded.

In addition to this development, a new site has launched for the band, featuring lyric sheets, audio, music videos, merch links, and more to come. Visit this location to check it out.

Common Dead released its flagship effort "Diatribe" (reviewed here) in February 2012, the last solo work before the induction of new members.
