Prognosis


Progressive groove metal

Manchester progressive groove metal band Prognosis, have since 2015, striven to write music that is as diverse as it is heavy. They released Drones in 2016, a single which captured the fire of a fan favourite and now the band have, with their debut album Definition, which was rated 8/10 in Metal Hammer and described as "something very special" by Gear Gods, made a real statement of intent. A concept record looking at the theme of the human condition, it marks their evolution as a band which boasts a sound which is as polished as it is abrasive, as melodically accessible as it progressively ambitious and off-kilter and is distinctly their own.

Musically Prognosis have cultivated their own sound on this record. Labelled once as "Mastodon playing Carcass" the band include a host of subtle influences which makes Definition a highly rewarding listen. Beyond groove metal, the band also emulate Dream Theater and Muse, the technicality of Jeff Loomis, and the abrasive elements of Death and beyond. Lyrically, the songs are bound together by a concept which looks at the flawed characteristics that define us as humans, such as selfishness, greed and imperiousness. All combined, the band create music that is at once progressive, grounded, over-the-top and ferocious, and well deserving a listen.

To add to the album, co-guitarist/vocalist Phil Weller has penned a book of short stories expanding on the stories. From a dystopian sci-fi tale of survival and a tragic love story (think Steven Wilson meets Romeo and Juliet) to a King who cons his way into heaven, the multi-genre collection reveals the songs in deeper and different lights. Available soon.

In their short history Prognosis have played at Bloodstock (2017), Mammothfest (2018) and supported ThresholdConjurerBoss Keloid and Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons. They are due to play HRH Metal Festival in 2019 alongside a host of dates in support of the record.
