CIVILIZATION ONE was founded in 2006
by The Native Sri Lankan vocalist Chitral “Chity”
Somapala
and The French Bassist Pierre-Emmanuel
Pélisson.

They were looking for a band
which could combine heavy riffing
with the sensitivity of
melodic/catchy vocals from the
classic heavy metal / hard rock
influences they gathered from
travelling through many paths
in their musical careers.

Their debut album “Revolution
Rising” was Produced under the
hands of Markus Teske
(VANDEN PLAS, DOMINICI,
MOB RULES, RED CIRCUIT) in
the Bazement Studios in
Germany and was released in
Europe by Metal Heaven and in
Japan by Spiritual Beast in 2007.

The Debut was well praised and
reviewed by the international
press.

That same year, after all the buzz
on internet among metal/rock
fans, the band was offered to
headline the ProgPower UK’s
Pre-Party show in Cheltenham,
England. They gained a decent
popularity in UK even without a
record deal a flashy/tight
performance. The promoters took
notice of the band and booked
Civilization One for festivals in Germany
2008.They Made a Huge Impact in Sri Lanka performing as the first ever International Metal Act infront of 4000 spectators in November 2008 at Sri Lanka’s Exhibition Center Colombo on TNL ONSTAGE Show as the Headliner.

At the beginning
of 2008 Due to few line up Changes, a more than adequate
new entrant was found the German Drummer
Michael Stein And
The Englishman Tim Mills quickly
jumped on the ship to head off
the shows being confirmed and
for the 2nd album “Calling the
Gods” due in 2009.

The metal community now has
the opportunity to see the
dynamic on stage performance of
a heavy metal style with classic
metal influences which has
already made quite an impression
on journalists and fans
equally all over the globe.
