Tech-Death Tuesday: KEEP ON ROTTING And PRONOSTIC Give The Gift Of Transcendental Teleportation

Hey other people of earth reading this! For anyone just tuning in for the first time Tech-Death Tuesday is a new column here focused on sharing killer music that's typically lesser known even among tech-death heads. In today's installment, both bands music goes in a decidedly progressive direction that deviates from the generic tech-death norm. Although that's not always the case, as I've already featured some pretty horrific and savaging technical death metal in previous installments of this series. Until next week, May The Shred Be With You. Yes I know that was incredibly lame, but the new Star Wars movie has me really excited in general!

Today's first band is Keep on Rotting, who hail from the underground death metal and grind hot spot within the Czech Republic. If you know your tech-death well than you've probably heard of the legendary Czech technical death metal band Lykathea Aflame. Or fellow countrymen Heaving Earth who dropped a fantastic record this year called Denouncing The Holy Throne.  Keep on Rotting have carved out a smooth and cerebral style of tech-death all their own on Wandering Fall. While Wandering Fall consists of only two songs, both songs showcase an impressive evolution for the band musically. Whereas on past releases they seemed to be writing music in the vein of a few different acts, Keep on Rotting as heard on Wandering Fall is much more the sound of a band who has found their own identity.  Listening "To The Hornbeam Tree" and "Wooden Sun Cult" reminded me of the sort of atmospheric and modern hybridized sound of Rivers Of Nihil, mixed with the groovy nature of Soreption, and outstanding lead guitar-work that made me think of Beyond Creation.


Montreal based Technical Melodic Death Metal act Pronostic have been on my radar for a few years now. Dating back to 2012 when they released their fantastic debut full-length, Deviated Inner Spectrum, which you can listen to at their bandcamp. Just two days ago the band dropped a massive bomb in the form of an advanced album stream for their sophomore follow-up, An Atomic Decision. Which will officially be out on Saturday, November 21st. And while I'm not seeing any pre-order information right now, I'm sure that will appear soon over at their Pronostic facebook page. If you're a fan of The Black Dahlia Murder, then you'll really love this one as An Atomic Decision has some certain sonic parallels with TBDM, and with melodic death metal in general as well. Though the bulk of their music lay more in a sound along the lines of progressive-minded death metal acts The Faceless and Death. An Atomic Decision sees an evolved Pronostic stick out and become yet another rising technical death metal newcomer from Canada who will soon take over the worldwide scene.
