Prognosis Release New Single ‘Drones’

Prognosis Warn of Cold Dystopian Future with New Single ‘Drones’

 Prognosis - Drones (Artwork)

Listen to the track here:


Manchester Progressive metal band Prognosis has returned with a venomous new single in Drones. A song that prophesises that technological advancements in modern warfare could leave us at the mercy of emotionless killing machines, the harrowing line “the human touch has left this war,” haunts its chorus.


Juxtaposing the technical, assaulting prog metal of Dream Theater and Meshuggah with the epic and infectious song writing of Muse and Devin Townsend, Prognosis have never sounded more deadly than this.


First debuted live at the end of 2015, it has fast become a staple of their sets and a firm favourite in the Manchester Metal Community. Having teamed up with Chris Taylor at NoiseBoy Studios (Burial. Wolf Bastard, Lester Verde) and The Drum Tamer (Cleft, Mask of Bees, Mothertongue) to lay down the song, this is a recording which packs a real punch.


Complimented by returning artist Paul Cooke’s post-apocalyptic artwork, with Drones, Prognosis are making a forceful statement.


Prognosis is:
Danny Daemon – Bass / Vocals
Phil Weller – Guitar / Vocals
Chris Hickson – Guitar
Dan Webster – Drums

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
